FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT
Commercial law covers a range of legal services that are largely based around protecting a client’s business, managing risk through the provision of legal contracts.
These legal documentations take many different forms, for example client contracts, employment contracts and privacy policies for your website.
Whether it be contract drafting, contract negotiating or contract reviewing, we provide clear guidance to support.
Having comprehensive and legally binding written agreements in place is essential. Contracts encourage both parties in the agreement to behave in a certain way and encourage good working relationships. Without well-drafted contracts that are specific to your company, you are exposing your business to a great deal of potential risk.
Our commercial law team work closely with our clients to deliver watertight and relevant legal documents that protect businesses across all industries and niches.
We wouldn’t recommend it. Although you can easily copy a generic template from Google, doing so could be putting yourself at risk. That’s because your business is unique to you and a generic template may not cover everything you need. Don’t risk your business success by cutting corners. Having documents tailored to your specific business needs by a Jamieson Law legal professional guarantees long-term peace of mind.
If you have drafted a legal document yourself, it is a good idea to have a solicitor review it before you use it. We can take a look at your contract and ensure it is legally compliant and fully protects you.
If you have a contract that you need to sign, but you aren’t sure about some of the areas it covers, having a solicitor review it is also a good idea. You don’t want to get stuck in a bad contract!
