The Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ Commercial team consists of an experienced and commercially aware team of lawyers specialising in a wide variety of commercial law issues and commercial contracts. Our team are the biggest along the M5 corridor between Birmingham and Bristol by some distance.
We pride ourselves on quality of legal advice and also on the efficient service that we provide, which is essential when dealing with commercial issues.
Our commercial team is recognised as a top tier firm within the West Midlands region by our peers in the Legal 500 where Robert Capper, head of the Commercial Department is specifically recommended for commercial expertise and our commercial department is also recognised in the South West region within the same directory.
Our office locations inevitably enable us to offer lower costs without the need to sacrifice skill, expertise or insight which means city-rate quality without the hefty price tag associated with city lawyers.
This, in combination with the fact that a number of our lawyers have worked at National and/or City firms, means that we offer a realistic alternative to comparatively sized City firms.
Our clients range from start-ups, through SMEs to large national and multi-nationals companies, as well as schools and public sector bodies. We know that one size does not fit all, and you need a bespoke solution for your unique business needs. We ensure you receive the right level of advice or contract for each situation and according to your needs.
No matter what situation our clients are facing, from the outset we take the time to gain an overall understanding of their business in order to give informed advice on the commercial and legal issues they are dealing with. We always work with our clients to achieve their business goals.
We can help with both your business’ day to day and long term commercial matters, whether its entering into a contract, altering or amending a contract or (where applicable), terminating a contract.
We provide the following commercial agreements in both domestic and international scenarios such as:
- Advertising agreements;
- Agency agreements
