Urgent Contract Law Advice?
What are commercial contracts and why have them reviewed by a lawyer?
A commercial contract can be for anything which you 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 UK contract law solicitor, my business clients benefit from me 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 solicitors?
All kinds. In the past I have reviewed the following and much more besides:
- Distribution Agreements
- Franchise Agreements
- Framework Agreements
- Supply Agreements
- Manufacturing Agreements
- Joint Venture Agreements
- Shareholder/Partnership Agreements
- Advertising agreements
- Sales Agents Agreements
- Share Purchase Agreements (SPAs) and Asset Purchase Agreements
How much does a contract review cost?
We like to work on a fixed fee basis but it’s tough to give a quote without seeing the contract. I’d, therefore, ask you to call me and email me a copy of the contract if possible, so I can give you a firm quote.
Generally, you should be budgeting around £150 plus VAT for a simple 1-2 page contract, up to maybe £1,250 plus VAT for a substantial 40+ page legal document.
If you’re unsure on the question of fees, or on any aspect of contract law or business law and need to speak to a solicitor, then call me, Steven Mather.
Just fill in the form on the side of this page, or give us a call to discuss further.
