The basis for trade and transport is determined by the contracts underlying them. Our work regularly involves preparing, checking and advising on contracts and agreements. Examples include purchase contracts, contracts of carriage, charter parties, distribution contracts, agency contracts, shareholders’ agreements, management agreements, building contracts and employment contracts.
The use of general terms and conditions can play an important role in the above, particularly when seeking to limit liability. We regularly advise our clients on which general terms and conditions are the most suitable for them (excellent terms and conditions have often already been prepared by the relevant sector association).
