Seeing the fine detail & the big picture & giving straight answers & commercial first for a change & at your finger tips & realising your vision & that’s Commercial law with Bird & Bird
We have market leading commercial experts in all of our offices able to provide an integrated and unique commercial offering to clients. The group works independently as opposed to being a support function to the firm’s other practice groups.
Our sector approach means we have a deep understanding of how businesses work and understand the key business drivers applicable to our clients’ sectors. This enables us to guide our clients through the entire lifecycle of their business, providing practical legal solutions to practical business challenges.
The International Commercial Group, which includes Outsourcing, Franchising, Licensing and Multi-Channel Strategies, Privacy & Data Protection, and Tech Transactions, works in conjunction with the firm’s other practice areas to provide a complete solution to clients’ requirements.
Clients come to us to act not only as expert technical lawyers but as ‘trusted advisors’ who support the business as a whole and help them to achieve their objectives. We provide solutions rather than simply identifying problems.
If you'd like to know more about how we can help you, please get in touch with group head Simon Shooter.
