Trade & Commercial Contracts

Entering into commercial agreements, especially in international trade, brings both opportunities and risks. we have the opportunity for growth, revenue diversification, and increased profits both domestically and abroad. On the other hand, entering into agreements that inadequately protect us or contain unfavourable provisions may lead to negative consequences in the future. Additionally, differences in legal regulations between countries can result in difficulties in interpreting and enforcing agreements.

Our clients represent leading entities from practically every industry in both B2B and B2C domains (eg. e-commerce), including regulated sectors such as energy, water supply, public transportation, defense, aviation, fuel industry, and life sciences. We support industry leaders in establishing the foundations of business relationships, framework principles of cooperation, general terms of agreements, and distribution systems (sales representations, agencies, franchising). We also provide advice to individual entrepreneurs or group of entrepreneurs who are entering into or renegotiating terms within such systems.
