Commercial contracts

Areas of expertise

Commercial contracts are fundamental for business relations in all sectors of industry and commerce. A well-negotiated and professionally drafted contract is crucial to a long-term business relationship. We assist with drafting, negotiating, reviewing, implementing and solving disputes related to all types of commercial contracts.

We believe that the best results are achieved through a close cooperation with our clients, where the contact is established as early as possible. We always strive to gain an in-depth understanding of what is important to the client's transaction.

Commercial contracts differ substantially, but there are some recurring issues arising in most contracts, such as clarifying the rights and obligations of the parties, division of risks and consequences of breach of contract.

Each contractual relationship poses its own challenges. Each contract has to be carefully tailored to the parties' needs and requirements, to manage the risks involved and to comply with applicable legislation. It is important that the contract as far as possible prevents future disagreements. This also applies when using standard contracts.

Several of our lawyers have extensive experience with international contractual relations, and with drafting and negotiating contracts in English.

Not all contractual relationships develop in the way the parties imagined or intended. Delivery may be delayed, deliverables may be defective, or the parties may disagree on what has actually been agreed. Breach of contract may involve various consequences, such as claims for damages and contract termination. We have extensive experience assisting with contract dispute resolutions.
