About

Provided by Charles Russell Speechlys

Our team of specialist commercial contracts lawyers is dynamic, practical and enthusiastic. We focus on providing a holistic commercial contracts offering to high-profile brands and household names. Our key aim is to be a true extension of our clients’ own legal team.

These relationships demonstrate our ability to provide day-to-day advice across a range of sectors, including Sport, Retail, TMT and Data Protection often on the most high-value strategically significant deals. Our advice also regularly involves cross border elements and we continue to win new client mandates for complex, multi-jurisdictional matters.

We are also continuing to grow our overseas offering and can now call on additional market-leading practitioners alongside our existing sector specialists. This allows us to provide on the ground support to a number of key clients throughout the Middle East.
In addition we have wide-ranging commercial expertise beyond the Sport, Retail and TMT sectors. This enables us to provide a first class informed service to clients ranging from major corporates to start-ups.

All of our associates spend time in-house on secondment with our large corporate clients. This provides them with the ability to think and advise the “in-house” way, with clear and non-legalistic advice and helps with business development to have a number of client relationship developers throughout the team.
