How we can help you

Issues such as protection of intellectual property, negotiation of MOD contracts and other issues concerning the supply of goods and services to and by defence contractors are common. Any contract with the public sector will also mean having to understand and comply with the rules and regulations governing public procurement. Where a business embarks on trading internationally, export licensing and compliance with local and international anti-bribery and corruption legislation are important considerations when appointing local agents and distributors or supplying foreign customers.

We advise businesses of all sizes in connection with such issues and invite our clients to network with each other at our defence and security focussed events
