Whether you are a start-up business, a professional partnership, a national service, or a supply company, we are fully versed in the complete range of commercial agreements you are likely to come across. We can also advise you if you are expanding internationally.
Our professional, tailored service regularly includes advice on the following:
Agency, distribution and franchising agreements
We can help your business commercialise its product or intellectual property portfolio with agreements that open up new markets and opportunities.
Framework and Teaming agreements
Do you find yourself doing business with the same people or companies repeatedly? If so, we can help structure your agreements to make them highly cost effective over time.
Joint Venture agreements
We can advise on both the formulation and unwinding of Joint Venture agreements. These provide a structure by which businesses co-operate to share the costs, risks and rewards of mutually beneficial operations.
Standard Terms and Conditions of business
An essential but often neglected part of business, these contracts regulate the relationship between businesses or between a business and its customers. We can bring your Terms and Conditions up to date with recent developments in the law and ensure they are fit for your business.
Intellectual property protection and licencing
If you are looking to identify and protect your business’s intellectual property (IP) we can help. We will also provide advice on the registration of IP rights and licencing agreements to maximise commercial value. Please visit our IP page for more information.
Computer hardware and software blur the traditional lines of goods, services and tangible or intangible assets. We can advise you on the initial specification, on-going maintenance and upgrades, as well as on any software licences needed.
Alan Warnes dealt with the sale of my father's house after my father died last year. He was sensitive to the fact that my brother and I had lost our father and dealt with everything brilliantly. We had complete confidence in the work Barrett & Co did for us and it was great for my brother and I to have positive dealings with a law firm. Long may it continue!
I contacted the firm about my Divorce and was routed to Paul Wild. I found Paul to be very helpful and knowledgeable about the whole process and he talked me through all the options. The initial consultation was very thorough and useful. Would highly recommend.
Justin Sadler assisted me with an employment agreement. I would thoroughly recommend this firm - fast, reliable and clear guidance and advice.
I contacted Barrett and Co to get my Will prepared. Charlotte Fox is the Solicitor that dealt with it. My meeting at there offices with Charlotte and her Trainee was exceptionally smooth and reassuring. I found Charlotte very understanding and approachable. I am delighted with her service and the firm's ethos. Will recommend confidently to my friends and to myself for any legal or statutory matter.
We are an International Sports Federation and needed assistance with getting our Federation incorporated as a Company with Limited Liability. We were walked through the whole process with incredible professionalism but also a lot of understanding and flexibility in the various services required. Jane Whitfield did a wonderful "hand-holding" exercise and once we had completed our incorporation she again walked us through the whole process of registering as a Charity. This process was also completed successfully. As the person that worked very closely with Barrett Co and Jane in particular, I can testify not only to the professionalism, but also the friendly and efficient way in which the whole process was dealt with until completion. We are looking to walk a long road with this company as we deal with further legislative requirements.
