Agreements, Contracts & IP

Draw on our expertise to put in place the agreements and contracts that will properly protect the assets and trading position of your business.

Providing protection

Your business comprises a whole series of relationships, including those with your customers, suppliers, bank and those between shareholders or business partners. All these should be covered by formal contractual agreements. It is essential that such documents accurately reflect the intentions of the parties and provide adequate protection when required to do so.

Expertise independently recognised

Independently recognised by Legal 500 with a team described as 'excellent'.

‘I can highly recommend Matthew Rowley – the advice given over numerous years has been nothing but first class – a true understanding of the task in hand and the ability to deliver the advice in simple laymen terms is second to none. A true asset to Harrowells.’  Client testimonial published in the Legal 500 (2022 edition)

We have lots of practical experience of drafting or reviewing key contractual documentation including:

  • Terms and conditions
  • Shareholder or partnership agreements
  • Distribution, franchise and agency agreements
  • Loan agreements and personal guarantees
  • Other aspects of company documentation

In addition, many businesses don’t realise that their intellectual property (IP) may be one of their most valuable assets and should be protected by way of agreements relating to IP ownership, transfer and licensing.
