Commercial Contracts

Commercial contracts are fundamental to day-to-day trading activities and relationships

Contracts are part and parcel of running any business. We can help you negotiate contracts that secure your business objectives and manage your risks. But we don’t just stop there. We can help and advise you along the way, whether it is a contract query or a dispute. If you use our Legal Counsel Service, we will also be on hand every day to help you head off issues before they turn into problems. Our team are experts with extensive market knowledge. We take a straightforward, cost-effective and pragmatic approach. We will take a light touch for the day-to-day simple relationships and provide in-depth assistance on your key strategic or high risk contracts to help you to achieve your desired goals. We can also assist with development and roll out of standard contracts and contract management tools to enable you to work direct with routine suppliers and customers, so you only need to consult us when you absolutely need to. And we can provide ongoing training.

Specific areas of advice

The ecommerce industry is becoming more and more mature, with online retail continuing to grow year on year and many shoppers moving to either a tablet or a smartphone as their primary means of purchasing goods and services. As the industry grows, so do the regulations and compliance requirements. We deal with all aspects of ecommerce and will advise you in relation to ecommerce regulatory compliance, the ways in which the legislation can affect your business activities, online selling, including terms and conditions of trading, and website and e-marketing compliance.

What we did for...

It was important to us that our legal advisers were aligned to our business values, and we were impressed by the approach Vialex took to support our business by offering a ‘virtual’ in-house legal team who look after our day-to-day legal needs.

George Tait - Director and Company Secretary

We have worked with Vialex since 2012, following our buyout from a major UK foods group, when our fast evolving business required a different approach to meet our legal services needs in a cost effective way. At the time it was something of a leap of faith for Quorn Foods but we have been delighted with the service from Vialex, and the appetite they have shown to support us in any way they can.

David Artindale - Head of Procurement
We use the Vialex Legal Counsel Service as our day-to-day support for all our contracts and legal issues. They act as an extension of our own team and work with us to help us achieve our commercial goals. The subscription means we can get the advice we need when we need it for a fixed cost.

Arceeb Moughal - Director of Commercial

The Vialex Legal Counsel Service does what it says on the tin. We get a quality legal support service that responds to our needs, very often working to short timescales. The Vialex team has been particularly instrumental in assisting with our international contractual arrangements as we expand our reach into a number of new overseas markets.
