Commercial Contract

Members of 11KBW advise on and litigate in a wide range of commercial contract matters, in both the civil courts and a range of arbitral forums.

We regularly deal with issues such as:

  • formation, validity and construction of contracts
  • rectification
  • misrepresentation
  • restitution
  • shareholder agreements and commercial agency agreements.

On employment law matters, we regularly advise on and act in disputes concerning everything from bonuses, share-schemes, and other contractual incentives, to restrictive covenants and commercial TUPE provisions.

We have special expertise in penalties and restraint of trade issues, particularly in the context of business sale agreements, shareholder agreements and commercial agency agreements.

We also act in disputes arising from business sales in relation to deferred consideration, earn-out terms and warranties, indemnities and repayment clauses and retention of title clauses.

On matters relating to the public sector, we regularly act for public authorities and commercial bodies in their relations with each other, including matters relating to our pre-eminent public procurement and commercial judicial review practices, and broader contractual disputes.
