Commercial and supply chain

Our commercial contracts team has extensive experience of negotiating and drafting long term supply arrangements and standard terms and conditions of purchase and can help you to streamline your supply chain documents and processes, leading to enhanced control and a reduction in external legal costs.
We also have a proven track record of supporting clients on road logistics and other transport and warehousing contracts. Where a product is being purchased from overseas our specialist shipping and maritime law team can provide practical and legal advice on all aspects of international sale of goods, documentary credits, transport contracts, related cargo insurance, guarantees. When cargo is lost, damaged or delayed, we can advise on the claims arising.
