Commercial

Achieving business success in highly regulated and competitive markets requires effective management of commercial risks and of your supplier and customer relationships. It is also critical, particularly when entering Saudi Arabia, to be fully aware of statutory issues which may not be obvious to unprepared international brand owners. Whether you are an international or domestic business active in Saudi Arabia and the wider Middle East, you can rely on our advice on complex and multi-jurisdictional contractual arrangements and our knowledge of the commercial issues facing the sectors in which you operate. We have particular experience advising international companies entering the Saudi market and continue to assist them as they grow their businesses in the region.

With over 350 commercial and regulatory lawyers across 42 countries, our multi-disciplinary teams are trained to understand the cultural and business factors impacting your commercial arrangements. We organise our teams around sectors and industries relevant to you, including financial services, manufacturing, automotive, consumer products, energy, hotels and leisure, infrastructure and projects, life sciences, supply and logistics, real estate and construction, technology, telecoms, media and sports. We can guide you towards the best business outcome, whether you require advice on commercial contracts, supply services, e-commerce, IT or telecoms agreements, data protection, design and manufacturing, advertising, sponsorship and marketing, consumer sales, software licensing, outsourcing, or sales, agency, distribution and franchise agreements.

We offer advice on all aspects of trade law and practice, commercial agencies and importation issues. We negotiate, advise on and draft major commercial contracts including consultancy arrangements, agency contracts, distribution contracts, franchise, import and export, competition joint ventures, management, sponsorship, licensing, technical assistance and technology transfer contracts, construction, procurement and operating and maintenance arrangements.
