Contract agreements and terms
Can you help with my contract agreement terms?
With practical and cost-effective guidance tailored to your specific needs, we help you engage with your customers and suppliers on contract terms that best serve your business objectives and appetite for risk.
This includes sales and purchase terms and conditions, warranties and guarantees, sub-contractor supply and manufacturing agreements, tender processes, service level agreements and confidentiality and non-disclosure agreements.
If issues arise along the way, we use clear reporting and escalation procedures to achieve a prompt resolution.
Intellectual property (IP) and branding
How can I protect and manage my intellectual property?
Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) are the rights associated with creative effort, which can be legally protected. The most common forms of IPR include copyright, designs (including brands), patents and trademarks, database rights and domain names. We help you understand what intellectual property (IP) you own, how you use it and how you support and protect it.
We will optimise your IP and advise you on all aspects of ownership and licencing, including working collaboratively with third parties. We also help protect your investment and resolve any infringement disputes.
Data protection and cyber security
What data protection regulations and measures do I need to follow?
If your business collects, stores or uses personal data, we will advise you on good practice and how to comply with relevant legislation. In the UK, the General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) cover your responsibilities, but if you trade outside the EU you may be subject to other legislation, including the EU-US Privacy Shield.
We help ringfence your liabilities, advising on data protection, privacy and confidentiality agreements, Freedom of Information Act, third party contracts for hosting and storing data, and internal policies for protecting information.
The threat from cyber attack is significant, and our policy is that protection is better than treatment. We work with you to assess your vulnerability and put policies in place to prevent attack and protect your data.
