Contracts are the foundation of your business, so getting them right at the outset is critical because getting them wrong can be costly if disputes arise.

MBM Commercial can help create airtight agreements for partnerships, employment, sales, services, and more, ensuring that your interests are protected and the terms are clear.

We can draft new contracts, review/redline existing or 3rd party contracts and provide advice for your business on:

  • Licensing deals (e.g. for software, trademarks or patents)
  • SaaS agreements
  • Manufacturing, distribution, reseller, agency and franchise agreements
  • Consultancy agreements
  • Non-disclosure agreements (NDAs)
  • Employment agreements

One of our most popular and valuable services to our clients are our ‘Red Flag Reviews’ which ensure that you understand contractual terms and potential risks. We will review an agreement and flag any provisions that are unusual or onerous to you, as well as making sure that terms that we would typically expect to see in an agreement of that kind are included. This provides peace of mind to clients who need an extra hand in negotiating their contracts with third parties.

As a commercially-minded practice, we help our clients see the risks and benefits of their contracts so that they can make the best decision for their business and the deal done.

Don't sweat the small print! Let us do that for you.

Legal advice is often perceived to be expensive and time consuming, especially for SMEs. As a result, busy FDs, commercial directors and sales teams can be reluctant to seek legal advice on their contracts. But failing to get contracts properly checked can have disastrous consequences. The small print is often missed or misunderstood, leading to costly and unwanted consequences. Whether this relates to the length of the contract, the ability to terminate it, the payments due or the costs you are liable for, failing to appreciate the finer detail creates a huge business risk.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Your legal advice should be the fence at the top of the cliff, not the ambulance at the bottom. Sometimes a quick call or short email exchange is all that is needed to provide that security.

This is what our “Small Print” Contract Support Services are designed to address. We catch the small print that might be missed. We remove the cost and time concerns and allow SMEs to get the contract advice they need when they need it. We provide prompt, clear and commercial advice. No jargon. No legalese. No problem.

Our “Small Print” Services are subscription packages that provide SMEs with commercial contract solutions from our team of experienced contract specialists at a fixed price with no tie-in. We see ourselves as your “in-house” contract team, and will work hard to understand your business’s particular needs and concerns, so that we are ready to provide the legal and commercial advice you need at the right time.

“Small Print” Services offer various levels of subscription, so you can choose the level of contract support that is right for your business. Your subscription will cover a range of contract solutions, including contract templates drafted in plain English that are easy for you to complete yourself, training videos to equip your team with relevant contract knowledge, and guides to help you negotiate the contracts that come across your desk. Plus our friendly and knowledgeable team will be on hand at our helpdesk to answer any questions you may have.
