When the task of designing, developing and hosting a new website is outsourced to a specialist team or individual, the need for a watertight agreement that sets out the scope of work, the timescales expected and the agreed costs is essential in protecting the interests of both parties – after all, a string of emails is rarely enough to prevent disputes from arising. We work with a range of commercial entities ranging from development teams to their clients to draft and negotiate contracts that cover areas including copyright, defamation, trade mark infringement, E-Commerce Regulations, Distance Selling Regulations, terms and conditions, and many more.

Your website terms and conditions are a binding contract between your business and the customer. More than just a box-ticking exercise, a clear and well-written contract will reduce the risk of complaints and boost your customers confidence in your business.
