Avoiding damaging commercial contract disputes

‘We steer clear of legal jargon – making sure your contracts reflect your needs without unnecessary complexities’

Surprisingly, 70% of UK companies experience damaging commercial contract disputes at some time. Getting your contracts right from the start is the best way to avoid these type of problems later. We take the time to understand your needs, so we can focus on the contractual issues that genuinely affect your business.

The right advice from a Royds Withy King commercial contract solicitor

By choosing a Royds Withy King commercial contract solicitor you’ll benefit from years of experience. We’ve advised a wide range of business owners and company directors on contractual issues that affect the future of their organisation. There are a number of ways we can help, including:

  • Fixed price review
    As your business develops, contracts with suppliers and customers may become outdated – exposing you to commercial contract disputes. As new legislation might also affect you, a periodic fixed price review of your business contracts could be well worth while.
  • New ventures
    If you’re setting up a new business venture or expanding an existing one, getting your contracts right can play a critical part. We’ll take you through each step of the process and make sure you understand all the documentation you need.
