Our commercial solicitors in Sheffield advise clients on a wide range of commercial matters from terms and conditions of business and agency / distributorship agreements to complex multi-party documentation often found in heavily regulated industries.

The work we do requires us to have an appreciation, not just of the legal issues, but also the underlying commercial objectives. As a result of working with a broad range of business clients we have developed considerable sector knowledge of specific industries.

  • General commercial contracts
  • Agency agreements
