Bishop & Sewell

For any business, contractual arrangements are at the heart of its day-to-day operations. Getting them wrong can be expensive and, in some cases, can ruin your business. Spending time and money having your contracts properly drafted or reviewed is a sound investment.

It is always advisable to have a written contract for every trading relationship. Whether you are entering into an arrangement with a new supplier, or whether you are selling your goods and services to your first customers or clients, you need to make sure that your contractual documentation properly protects your position.

You need advice to ensure that the contract reflects your understanding of the relationship and does not contain any clauses that are unfairly onerous or unenforceable.
