Contract drafting and review services for businesses

At Sweeney Miller Law we have helped many organisations through incorporation as they start their business journey. We have also supported these businesses through their growth and assisted them as they expand and branch out over time.


Some organisations look at allocating shares to new investors; some opt to franchise their brand; some explore management buyouts (MBOs) while others simply sell their company on to a larger organisation, and we can advise on all of these matters.


The main commercial contracts we draft for businesses on a regular basis include:

  • Shareholder agreements
  • Directors service agreements
  • Partnership agreements
  • Franchise agreements

Sadly, there are also times when our clients face contract disputes and need us to assist them through mediation or litigation. While these challenges are unwelcome and stressful, it is often the quality of the contracts in place that protects the business from damaging legal action.


Collaboration is key. We frequently work alongside other professionals such as barristers, accountants or tax advisors to provide comprehensive advice to clients.

Why choose Sweeney Miller Law for your commercial contracts?

As a professional and experienced law firm with a proven track record in dealing with a wide range of commercial contracts we have seen the value of a well written contract many times.


While we understand that the cost of creating partnership agreements and shareholder agreements can be off putting to business owners (particularly during the start-up phase when money is tight), we always stress that good contracts are an investment that may pay them back many times over in the long term.


As one of the leading commercial law firms in the North East, we pride ourselves on our pragmatic and conscientious approach to commercial contracts. This always starts by taking the time to understand the nature of your business and the various factors that may affect it as the organisation grows and diversifies.


We always bring our skills and experience to bear so that, however a company evolves over time, it is not limited or exposed by the contracts that you have put in place.
