Creating contracts tailored to the needs of your business

Thanks to the Internet there are no shortage of contract templates available today. At the click of a button you can have all kinds of standard agreements presented to you. Yet all businesses are different and trying to apply a generic approach to an enterprise that is unique can be like forcing a square peg into a round hole.

By taking the time to draft bespoke and carefully tailored contracts to meet the specific needs of your business, you can be confident in your position and safeguard against any problems that may arise in the future.

While it is impossible to predict where your commercial activities may take you over the coming years and decades, knowing that your business dealings are built on solid foundations can provide great peace of mind.

We offer commercial contract services to enterprises of all sizes, across a broad range of industries. Why not get in touch for a free initial consultation.

Understanding commercial contracts?

Contracts are part and parcel of business from the moment a company is established. In fact, some of the most important contracts that will ever be signed are the ones that acknowledge who is responsible for running a company, who benefits from any profits made and who is answerable in the eyes of the law.

If you are going into business with another individual or a number of individuals, choosing the right business setup is crucial. This will ensure that things are fair and – in the unlikely event that something goes wrong – the procedure for resolving any issues is clear.

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; while others simply sell their company on to a larger organisation.

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

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

Sadly, there are times when our clients face contract disputes and require 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.

Why choose Sweeney Miller Law as your commercial contract solicitors in the North East?

As a professional and experienced law firm with a proven track record in 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 to clients that good contracts are an investment that may pay them back many times over in the long term.

As one of the leading 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 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.
