Contracts provide the legal framework for any agreed commercial activity between two or more parties. They should be clearly drafted, reflect reality and strike a reasonable balance between the commercial interests of the parties.

- Agency and distribution agreements
- Management agreements
- Consultancy contracts
- Success fee agreements
- Building contracts
- Framework agreements
- Licensing agreements
