Commercial Law

Herrington Carmichael LLP has a team of experienced commercial lawyers that provide a combination of legal expertise and pragmatic commercial awareness.

We are alert to the fact that not all projects fit neatly into a standard form of document and that contracts need to be tailored to the specific circumstances and the needs of our clients. We make time to understand your business. Our lawyers have extensive experience across a wide range of industry sectors and have dealt with clients ranging from owner-managed businesses to many household name brands.

We regularly advise clients on and negotiate complex commercial agreements, agency & distribution agreements, outsourcing agreements, non-disclosure agreements, manufacturing agreements, IT & Technology contracts, and managed services agreements to name a few.

We also provide our clients with a full range of commercial law and regulatory law advice, including the impact of consumer law and competition law on businesses, e-commerce and sales strategies, and ensuring businesses are aware of their data protection and regulatory requirements.

Our wealth of experience and blend of private practice and in house experience means that there is very little that we have not seen before, so we are well placed to deal with whatever is thrown at us.

As well as advising on commercial agreements and providing commercial advice, we offer bespoke commercial law training and in-house legal support tailored to suit you and your business.
