What are commercial contracts and why have them drafted or reviewed by a lawyer? 

A commercial contract can be for anything which you and your business are buying or selling, whether that is goods or services. It can be a long term framework agreement for a multi-million pound commercial contract, or it could be a one-off supply of products to a customer. 

As a Leicester contract law solicitor, Steven’s business clients benefit from reviewing their contracts prior to them signing them or starting work under them. That’s crucial, as otherwise you could be deemed to have accepted the terms and conditions. 

What’s important with any contracts is that they are fair and balanced between both parties. Whether you are the “buyer” or the “seller”, we can help review (or write) a contract that works for you. 

But why have your legal contracts reviewed by a solicitor? Isn’t that just a waste of money? I’ve read them and they seem fine. 

Quite possibly that’s true, but if you get me as a contracts lawyer to review your contract, then I can answer any questions you have, negotiate the contract, the wording, ensuring that it works how you expected it to and that there are no nasty surprises. 

One thing I can absolutely assure you is that having a contract review now is much, much cheaper than going to Court with a contract dispute (I do them too!)

What kind of contracts get reviewed by Contract lawyers? 

All kinds. In recent times, Steven has reviewed and drafted the following and much more besides:

How much does a contract review solicitor cost? 

Steven prefers to work on a fixed fee basis but it’s tough to give a quote without seeing the contract. We, therefore, ask you to call in or email a copy of the contract if possible, so an accurate fee can be given.

Generally, you should be budgeting for a minimum of £500 plus VAT for a simple 1-2 page contract, up to maybe £1500-3000 plus VAT or more for a bespoke legal document. Business Purchases/Sales cost more. 

There is of course a difference between drafting contracts and reviewing contracts, but in terms of price, they are often not too dissimilar.
