Our terms and conditions services

Having the right terms and conditions in place is an important step in ensuring that your business is well-protected and is able to fulfil its short and long-term commercial goals. Taking the appropriate steps now to put effective terms and conditions in place can also help to reduce the potential for disruptive disputes further down the line.

Drafting terms and conditions

Our specialist solicitors for terms of business can work alongside your business to draft carefully tailored terms and conditions which provide a platform on which you can trade confidently with your customers, clients and suppliers.

When instructed, our team will get to know the details of your business and advise on the ideal terms which protect your interests and allow you to achieve your commercial goals.

When drafting terms and conditions from scratch, our team will advise on:

  • Pricing
  • Payment terms (including how payments are made and interest rates)
  • Delivery terms
  • Dispute resolution terms
  • Liabilities
  • Data protection

It is important to note that failing to implement terms and conditions properly can have a hugely detrimental impact on your businesses’ operations. Contracts can be considered unenforceable if they are poorly drafted, or ambiguous. This is why terms and conditions advice from our solicitors is essential.

Reviewing terms and conditions

If you already have terms and conditions in place, this is not to say that they will still be relevant, or be suitable for your business. You should consider updating your terms and conditions if there have been any significant changes to your business or the market since they were written.

Our team can review your existing terms and conditions and advise on where changes can be made to better reflect your businesses’ goals.

Resolving disputes arising from terms and conditions

Even where you have taken the appropriate measures to draft your terms and conditions, disputes can still potentially arise. If they do, our solicitors for terms and conditions will step into support, advising on a range of associated issues, including:

  • Breach of contract
  • Debt recovery
  • Regulatory issues
  • Consumer complaints
  • Conditions and warranties
  • Exclusions of liability
  • Data protection

Terms and conditions – frequently asked questions

What are terms and conditions?

Terms and conditions define the legal contract between your business and your customers, clients, and suppliers, and regulate your business relationships. They may also be referred to as business terms, terms of sale, or terms of service.

What should be in terms and conditions?

Exactly what should be included in terms and conditions will vary depending on your business and the industry you operate in. However, there are certain elements which will typically feature in the majority of terms and conditions, including:

  • Pricing
  • Payment terms (including how payments are made and interest rates)
  • Delivery terms
  • Dispute resolution terms
  • Liabilities
  • Data protection

Are terms and conditions a legal requirement?

Unlike a Privacy Policy, terms and conditions are generally not a legal requirement. That being said, they are essential for protecting the interests of your business, as you will be left extremely vulnerable without having them in place.

Do you need a solicitor to write terms and conditions?

You do not necessarily need a solicitor to write terms and conditions. However, given that the consequences of having poorly drafted terms and conditions can be so serious, it is strongly advised that you utilise the expertise of a specialist in the field.
