In detail

Why? It’s because we believe that in order to provide the best advice, you have to provide tailored advice, drawing on appropriate technical knowledge. That means taking the time to understand your clients’ businesses so you don’t give them a solution, you give them the right solution. We’ve found that only a dedicated commercial team can achieve that in this area of work.

With every client we think about the key commercial objectives, ranging from risk management to profit maximisation. These are kept at the forefront of our minds when we’re drafting, negotiating and interpreting your contracts, focusing at all times on what you want to achieve commercially and operationally.

We take this approach for domestic and international clients across various sectors, including media & publishing, IT and technology, sport and financial services.
