The globalised economy, reduction of trade barriers and borderless data traffic have all profoundly changed the requirements made on worldwide commerce. Although the legal framework is becoming increasingly homogeneous in certain areas, new players in the marketplace and their associated national legislative systems have made things much more complex. As a result, manufacturers, procurement departments, distributors and importers are all challenged by new national and international contractual structures.

Taylor Wessing’s Commercial team is able to advise you on every aspect of commercial law, from opening new sales channels, merchandise distribution and warehousing, to franchise systems, R&D schemes, and work and services contracts. Our consultancy covers both day-to-day operations and strategic planning.

The depth of our knowledge across a multitude of industries and technology sectors enables us to design customised distribution systems that are geared to each client’s specific economic requirements. In this context, our presence in Asia and the CEE means we are excellently positioned to advise you across both established and emerging markets.
