Commercial Contracts

Good contracts determine responsibilities, distribute risk and can create lasting collaborations. Precise and clear advice regarding contracts facilitates innovation and added value. Brækhus places the customer’s commercial needs front and centre, and generates lasting results.

We understand the clients’ goals, the industry in which it operates, and we have in-depth knowledge of industry-specific contract standards and legal requirements. Our lawyers have experience from client secondments and know what it is like to negotiate from the inside.

Our lawyers have extensive experience in advising companies during contract negotiations, identifying the needs of the various decision makers, generating agreement and communicating this to the other party in a manner conducive to success. 

We assist with interpretation and negotiations when situations become challenging during the term of the contract. Sometimes, the parties do not reach an agreement. In such situations, we have extensive experience in dispute resolution, from mediation to arbitration and ordinary legal proceedings.

Brækhus has a strong international presence. Through our memberships in the international lawyers’ networks Meritas Law Firms Worldwide, Andersen Global and Crowe Global, we are able to assist our clients across national borders.

Brækhus is recommended for commercial contracts by Legal 500.
