Contracts & Commercial Law

Local authorities, from county councils to parish councils, and voluntary organisations undertake complex and/or high value commercial projects and transactions from time to time – and in some cases frequently. The transactions may be similar in many respects to those entered into by the private sector, indeed the other contracting parties may be private sector businesses, but there are often particular considerations, for example the rules relating to public procurement and subsidy control, which public and voluntary sector organisations may need to consider. Our commercial lawyers have detailed knowledge of the law relating to:

  • contracts;
  • public procurement;
  • subsidy control;
  • competition;
  • companies;
  • partnerships;
  • charities;
  • intellectual property; and
  • information law and data protection;

as well as the skills needed to work with our clients in order to bring a project or transaction to a successful conclusion:

  • good team-working, organisational and negotiating skills;
  • attention to detail;
  • flexibility and good time-management; and
  • a creative approach to problem solving.
