Commercial Contracts

A well drafted contract will optimise your company’s value; make your business more attractive to a purchaser and reduce the risks of losing money and your reputation. Here at Virtuoso we specialise in drafting and advising on a wide range of commercial contracts. Whatever side of the arrangement you are, from purchaser to seller, we can help you ensure that you get the best deal for your company without compromising your position. We are regularly instructed to draft water tight contracts on high value matters that simply cannot afford any ambiguity should something go wrong. A good contract is something that will pay for itself and should not be disregarded lightly. Should you find yourself having to enforce your contractual rights upon another party we also specialise in commercial litigation.
