Commercial agreements

General commercial agreements

We advise businesses, companies and partnerships on a wide range of general commercial law contracts. We identify the issues that go to the root of the agreement and ensure that all agreements we draft or review are tailored are thoroughly analysed and explained. It is important to us that no agreement ever turns into a dispute.

Our purpose is to negotiate commercial agreements on the issues that matter (and not to waste time on those that don’t) and thus provide a cost effective service to our clients.

Our expertise includes:

  • agency and distributorship agreements
  • franchise agreements
  • joint venture agreements and structures
  • reseller agreements
  • service level agreements
  • sponsorship agreements
  • supply agreements
  • terms and conditions of business

Recent work

Commercial contracts

Distributorship agreement

Our client entered into a distributorship agreement with a UK based supplier who had invented a device to reduce energy levels in refrigeration processes. Our client wanted an exclusive distribution agreement with the supplier to market the product in Portugal, his allocated territory, selling principally to hotels and restaurants.

Franchise agreement

We recently negotiated the purchase of a national children’s music and dance franchise from a seller and negotiated the franchise process with the franchisee.

Master framework, introducer and reseller agreements

Prior Law’s client is a UK plc listed on AIM and we were instructed to produce templates of these agreements in connection with our client’s VOIP business for use by our client on an international basis.

Terms and conditions of business

Our client runs an internet business selling children’s imagery and artwork in a number of jurisdictions. We drafted terms and conditions of business for the client, together with an agency agreement and contracts for the artists with a strong emphasis on the intellectual property rights (IPRs).
