It’s quite amazing how much business is done on a handshake or a verbal agreement. That’s all fine until, for example, your supplier doesn’t deliver, or what they provide isn’t up to standard.


This is when you wish you had something in writing. Something you can point to and say ‘that’s what we agreed’.

You don’t just need a contract for when things go wrong. A well drafted, well negotiated contract doesn’t just protect your business; it can also help it grow at the right pace, with the right partners. It can safeguard your intellectual property and enhance the service you receive from suppliers. It can protect profitability by making sure you don’t stump up for others’ mistakes. Then, there’s your online presence, joint ventures and any licensing or regulatory issues, plus data protection and agency arrangements.


If you’d prefer to just focus on the here and now of running a business, rather than being distracted by written commercial agreements, talk to the experts at Carbon Law Partners.

Our lawyers make the whole process as painless and efficient and possible. We’re business minded, switched-on people who run our own businesses, so we can give prudent advice and help you get the right paperwork in place.

If standard terms make sense, fine. If not, we’ll know what’s best for your unique circumstances. Even if you just need a quick sense check of what you’ve drafted, that’s fine too.
