Our commercial team develops and gives effect to the legal arrangements needed to help our clients achieve their commercial objectives and manage business risk.
Whether companies are seeking to bring to market new goods and services, transform their business model or enter new markets we can help. We are also adept at supporting clients in living their contracts and safeguarding hard won negotiated deals.
The work we do ranges from advertising and promotional work, agency and distribution, business process outsourcing, facilities management, franchising, joint ventures, logistics agreements, managed services and manufacturing agreements to sponsorship agreements, strategic alliances, supply and supply chain management as well as tender processes.
We also proactively assist companies looking to manage risk as well as provide support when a breach does occur. In this increasingly regulated business world consequences of failure to comply can be severely damaging.

- Establishing and rolling out a pan-European network of insurance intermediaries for FCG Private Finance
- Negotiating production and distribution agreements in the food and water industries
