About Cracknell Law

Commercial Law Retainers

We believe that working closely with clients is the best way to achieve results: Our non-contentious Commercial and Contract Law Retainers enable us to integrate with your business and develop a full understanding of the commercial considerations when providing our legal input. Not only does this provide a massive time (and fee) saving when conducting negotiations, it also means that you have legal resource at your fingertips when it is needed.  From the commencement of the engagement, we ensure that your contracts are up to scratch by implementing our full Contract Health Check Service. We have several retainer option to suit your requirements.

Data Protection Officer (DPO) Services

Under the GDPR some businesses will be required (and some may choose) to appoint a Data Protection Officer. Our external DPO Service delivers a cost-effective way to ensure compliance with this obligation as well as offering ongoing legal, technical and regulatory support for your business. We offer three levels of service to ensure an exact match to the specific size and needs of your organisation. By using Cracknell Law, we guarantee that you meet the DPO ‘independence’ requirements under the GDPR.

Create A Contract

We can create any type of commercial agreement needed to facilitate your business transactions and relationships. We have significant experience in drafting many forms of Commercial Contracts including:

  • Standard Terms and Conditions and Company Policies;
  • Contracts for the Sale or Purchase of Goods and Services;
  • Non-Disclosure and Confidentiality Agreements;
  • Website Terms and Policies;
  • Agency and Distribution Agreements;
  • Franchise Agreements;
  • Outsourcing Agreements;
  • Heads of Terms;
  • Novation and Variation Agreements;
  • Shareholders Agreements; and
  • Software Licences.

We will discuss the key terms that need to be addressed in the agreement in person or by phone before commencing with the work and we take care to avoid simply relying on precedents so that the agreement clearly reflects the proposed contractual arrangement. Once the agreement is drafted, we can assist you with negotiating your contracts to ensure that you trade on the best terms possible.


Shall I Sign?

Our low cost contract review service aims to ensure that you never have to sign a commercial agreement without being aware of the legal repercussions. The Shall I Sign service will provide you with a clear and accurate picture of the risks within a contract and we offer a range of options to suit the level of information that you require:

  • Snapshot Report (key issues only);
  • Full Report (major, material and minor issues);
  • Full Mark-Up of Agreement; and
  • Full Mark-Up of Agreement with Commentary.

Our fees are based on the level of input required by your selected option. However, we offer a fixed fee for the Snapshot Report regardless of the length or complexity of the Agreement which can provide you with an excellent means of identifying key issues.  Following our initial assessment and/or mark-up, we can provide further reviews, amendments and negotiation assistance at a fixed rate.

Contract Negotiation

We have vast experience with negotiating with very large organisations (Coca-Cola, L’Oreal, P&G, AT&T and Walmart to name a few) in a range of sectors across the globe. Our end goal is always to achieve a good result for the client and we are adept at juggling the legal position against the commercial factors and the need to get the deal done swiftly. Where possible, we will agree a fixed fee for contract negotiations. However, if you have a number of challenges on your Commercial Contacts then we recommend that you take a look at our Commercial Retainer options.

TM Registration

Cracknell Law’s Trade Mark registration service provides a cost-effective means for businesses to register trade marks in the UK.  We will conduct background searches for the mark you wish to register and advise on the chances of success. We will then manage the registration process from filing through to the trade mark being awarded.
