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 Commercial department is headed by Martin Reynolds assisted by Rob Jefferies. Both Martin and Rob have a wealth of commercial experience.

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 contracts

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.

  • review rating 5  Good firm as I used them for debt collection of significant six-figure sum. Well worth the money paid as it was a fraction of the amount owed. Justin Sadler handled the case for me. You get what you pay for.

  • review rating 5  Justin Sadler supported me through the process of agreeing a compromise / settlement agreement with my employer. He was very understanding both of my position and of what the legal position was. He asked lots of questions to make sure he understood the fact pattern and then put my case forward to get the best deal possible. I was very happy with the overall outcome and the significantly increased offer we received from the employer. I would happily use Justin again and would recommend the use of him and his team.

  • review rating 5  I consulted Justin Sadler, of Barrett & Co, in respect of an Employment Law matter. I found he had an excellent knowledge of the subject area; and the outcome achieved, was more or less as he had indicated. I would therefore have no hesitation in highly recommending him. In addition, I found him to be most personable and it is so much easier to do business with someone you like as well as respecting their expertise.

  • review rating 5  When I needed fast and proficient advice for my redundancy package. I contacted Barrett and Co. I was not disappointed. I was seen the same day, just 2 hours after making a call to them. I was treated well and felt confident in their ability to handle my case. They fought for my rights and ensured I was given what I was due which was actually more than I was offered by my company (many thanks Mr Sadler). I can fully recommend this solicitors and I will be using them again in the future should I need any legal advice. Would recommend strongly.
