Our contracts service

Franklins’ contract solicitors in Milton Keynes regularly help both businesses and individuals with many types of contracts, including:

Employment contracts

Employers are required by law to provide employees with contracts of employment. These contracts need to include the minimum legal requirements, but will also generally require bespoke clauses to protect your commercial interests.

There are many types of employment contracts. Some of the most common we deal with are:

We also help businesses with Employee Handbooks and Directors Service Agreements as required.

Commercial agreements

It is a good idea to formalise any business agreement with a contract wherever possible. This includes deals with suppliers and customers amongst others. A clear, well-written contract will specify the duties and responsibilities of all concerned parties, helping to minimise uncertainty and the risk of disputes. It can also provide a useful resource if disputes do arise, allowing them to be resolved more easily.

We can help you negotiate commercial agreements that serve your business interests, while keeping you and your company safe from the risk of unexpected legal issues.

Terms and conditions

Terms and conditions help to define expectations, so are another useful tool in both avoiding and resolving disputes. They provide a strong defence if you are accused of failing in your responsibilities towards a customer, supplier or other key business partner.

Our contracts solicitors take the time to understand your business, target market and the environment you operate in, allowing us to craft robust terms and conditions to protect your business.

Franchising

For franchises to work successfully, it is important that both franchisor and franchisee have a clear understanding of the rights and responsibilities involved. There are a number of specific considerations for franchise contracts, so it pays to have a solicitor experienced in this area to draft the agreement for you to avoid missing any important details.

Franklins’ contract solicitors have the experience and expertise to produce clear, detailed franchise agreements that mean nobody is left with any uncertainty and a profitable relationship can ensue.

Internet and e-commerce

With the ever-growing importance of the internet for modern business, it is especially important to make sure all of your contractual obligations are adequately accounted for.

Our solicitors are leaders in technology law, so we can help to ensure that your business is protected when trading online while also making sure that you are correctly discharging your obligations to your customers.

Resolving contract disputes

Where disputes over contracts arise, we can offer expert guidance on the fastest, most cost-effective way to resolve these disputes, while taking into consideration your commercial interests.

We will usually start by trying to find a mutually acceptable solution through mediation, where both parties sit down with a trained mediator and air their grievances. This is often the fastest and most cost-effective way to resolve disputes and can make it easier to maintain relationships if you need to continue to do business together in future.

However, where mediation is not effective or appropriate, we also have the experience and expertise to guide you and represent you through the process of going to court.
