You need to be aware of a range of legal issues when it comes to drafting commercial contracts. For example, limiting or excluding liability as far as possible within law – or, in the case of cross-border agreements, being clear about the jurisdiction under which the contract falls. You can come to us for practical and commercial advice derived from experience of dealing with the full range of issues before. Our aim is always to end up with clear and pragmatic agreements that work in the real world.
