Commercial Law


I can offer professional legal advice on all aspects of commercial law. In addition, I have access to a comprehensive network of specialised legal contacts. Common areas of commercial law include:

Terms of Business Contract Advice

Whether you are drafting business contracts or a Terms of Business Contract (ToB) for others to accept, or you have been asked to sign a business contract yourself, it is advisable to consult for legal advice. This can clarify your rights, and help you consider the implication of all points addressed in a contract. It also ensures that you know exactly what is expected of yourself and others.

Being aware of pitfalls, dangers and difficulties prior to signing commercial agreements can save complications and costly financial disputes at a later stage.

I can draft your contract or offer professional advice on a contract you are preparing or have received from your client.

Licensing and Sale (Assignment of IPR)

I can advise and help you license your IPR with other businesses for commercial gain. If you wish to dispose of your IPR (for example, trademarks, copyright and designs) I will steer you through the necessary process and prepare the required legal documents.

Contractual Disputes

Unfortunately, there are times when contractual partners disagree. Whether you wish to commence a contractual dispute, or find yourself defending a claim against you, I can advise you of your rights and the most effective way to proceed. This can include:

  • Claims for breach of contract
  • Defending a claim for breach of contract
  • Advice on the conducting of a dispute

Advertising Law and Compliance

The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) has strict Codes of Practice that must be adhered to, whether for broadcast or non-broadcast situations. Advertising law is complex, and it is essential to get it right to avoid an adverse ASA ruling, or indeed a prosecution. I have expertise in:

  • Advising on compliance
  • Responding to complaints
  • Advice on compliance with ASA Codes and regulation in general

Unexpected Law Issues Faced by Businesses

I have experience in defending investigations and prosecutions regarding Health and Safety, food safety, trading standards and other local authority and similar related matters. Please contact me to discuss these or any other Commercial Law enquiries.
