Supply of goods

Well-drafted and effective contracts for the supply of goods and the provision of services are essential for keeping supply chains intact and the smooth running of  your business operations   Whether your business is concerned with developing, distributing or selling products or either supplying or relying on services, we can ensure that your commercial contracts suit your business needs and manage risk effectively. Barnes Law provides a leading service in contract law. Our team works closely with you when advising on your contracts to carefully balance your business-specific requirements and risks with the wider current market practices


Well-structured contracts dealing with the supply of goods and services are essential to ensuring that your business relations with others (for instance, suppliers, consultants, customers or consumers) are robust.

Since contracts are legally binding, they can protect your business if things go wrong down the line. For instance, personal relations may deteriorate, or either party may be facing financial difficulties and be unable to pay.

We advise on the range of day-to-day commercial agreements, including:

  • Supply arrangements for services or goods;
  • Manufacturing agreements;
  • Outsourcing agreements;
  • Standard terms and conditions in business transactions
  • IT contracts

We aim to mitigate potential problems by tailoring contract terms to your situation. These terms may include:

  • The service price or goods (including variables such as third-party costs, inflation, development and improvement costs, etc.)
  • Delivery timeframes and transfer periods
  •  Payment terms
  •  Remedies and incentives
  •  Limitation of liability
  •  Termination provisions
  •  Ownership of Intellectual Property (IP)

Our goal is to create a long-term professional relationship with you and your business. As the law changes, contracts may need to be amended. We will ensure that your warranties remain up to date and in line with any legal developments. We are also able to provide consultations and advice regarding changes in the law.


Barnes Law is experienced in drafting and negotiating commercial contracts that are at the core of  our clients’ businesses. We can provide you with a personalised service where we work closely with your team to find out what is important to you,before   working to implement this in the contract.

As relationships develop, contracts  require changes. We can redraft your supplier contracts and service agreements to fit the new context of this relationship and adapt to the growth of your business.

If a contract is breached, Barnes Law can provide you with a powerful litigation team. We offer an end-to-end service, ranging from drafting the agreement to potential redrafting and amendments, all the way to representing your case in litigation if necessary.

Our expert dispute resolution lawyers are experienced in both mediation and litigation. We understand the emotional strain that comes with contract breaches, and so we aim to make this a well-informed and transparent process for you. For more information on how we can help in these situations, please visit our Dispute Resolution page and contact our team to discuss your situation.
