Supply chain contracting

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought the complex nature of global supply chains into sharp focus.  To ensure businesses are able to recover from the impact of lockdown as quickly as possible,  businesses will want to be confident that their supply chain can ‘switch back on’ to satisfy demand.  Equally,  looking forward,  there are undoubtedly lessons that businesses can take from the pandemic so allow them to move towards establishing an agile and resilient supply chain.

We support businesses to navigate the complex world of supply chain contracting. Our team of supply chain experts support businesses in all aspects of supply chain contracting,  including:

  • long term purchasing and supply contracts
  • contract manufacture agreements
  • outsourcing contracts
  • distribution arrangements
  • licensing agreements

  • guidance around contract interpretation, for example, force majeure provisions.

Our team also has expertise in supporting businesses to put in place appropriate supporting supply chain policies to ensure the protection of your reputation for example,  through the use of ethical labour and ethical sourcing policies.
