As the education environment continues to change and opportunities to make savings and generate income develop, schools and academies face a growing need to ensure that their budget and reputation is protected when they enter commercial contracts, including being able to demonstrate that adequate due diligence has been carried out.
Our experienced commercial contracts solicitors provide the best possible advice on creating business contracts with suppliers, customers or collaborators. Schools and academies enter into contracts all the time, and ensuring that your contracts are water tight is imperative for protecting you from being exposed to contractual risks, including disputes, contract negotiations, data protection breaches and regulatory compliance.
We work in partnership with you to ensure that all commercial contracts are clear and unambiguous. We draw on our extensive cross-sector and legal knowledge to ensure that all commercial contracts are fit for purpose, compliant with the law and help safeguard against commercial risks. All of your contracts need to take account of the legal and regulatory requirements, as well as the “deal” of an organisation. We work with you to make sure that whatever you are asked to sign, you know what the implications are, even if there is little room for negotiation.
While commercial contracts are put in place to safeguard your organisation, if your organisation is facing a commercial dispute we can work with you to provide clear and practical advice and support through every step of the dispute, from identifying whether there is a case, to dispute resolution through mediation or court proceedings.
We provide comprehensive and wide ranging advice on all aspects of commercial contracts, including:
- Service contracts
- Supplier contracts
- Heads of terms
- Procurement documentation
- Intellectual property
- Consultancy agreements
- Email and internet-use policies
- Website terms and conditions
- General terms and conditions of business
- Joint-venture agreements
- IT contracts
- Software licences
- Commercial contract disputes, including litigation and debt recovery support.
