What are contracts for the Supply of Goods and Services?

Well-structured contracts dealing with the supply of goods and services are essential to ensuring that your business relations with others (for instance, suppliers, consultants, customers or consumers) are robust.

Since contracts are legally binding, they can protect your business if things go wrong down the line. For instance, personal relations may deteriorate, or either party may be facing financial difficulties and be unable to pay.

We advise on the range of day-to-day commercial agreements, including:

  • Supply arrangements for services or goods;
  • Manufacturing agreements;
  • Outsourcing agreements;
  • Standard terms and conditions in business transactions
  • IT contracts

We aim to mitigate potential problems by tailoring contract terms to your situation. These terms may include:

  • The service price or goods (including variables such as third-party costs, inflation, development and improvement costs, etc.)
  • Delivery timeframes and transfer periods
  • Payment terms
  • Remedies and incentives
  • Limitation of liability
  • Termination provisions
  • Ownership of Intellectual Property (IP)

Our goal is to create a long-term professional relationship with you and your business. As the law changes, contracts may need to be amended. We will ensure that your warranties remain up to date and in line with any legal developments. We are also able to provide consultations and advice regarding changes in the law.
