What can I do for you?

I’m a commercial contracts specialist with a particular interest in supply chain management. My work typically involves working with businesses to negotiate high value long term supply and purchasing agreements, contract manufacture agreements, logistics and warehousing agreements, outsourcing agreements and joint ventures and strategic alliances. I also regularly support businesses to develop and exploit new routes to market, for example, through agency, distribution and licensing arrangements. I also have expertise in supporting businesses to put in place the intra-group agreements necessary to effectively record intra-group recharging arrangements.

Supporting my clients’ business aims

One project that I’m particularly proud of advising on involved me working with a client’s purchasing team to renegotiate a suite of high value purchasing contracts. The supplies related to a business critical raw material which were being supplied from a range of non-UK based suppliers. Historically, the business had been exposed to considerable price fluctuations and supply chain disruption. Through the renegotiation of the purchasing contracts, we achieved clear pricing parameters with price changes linked to commodity market fluctuations and a robust and resilient supply chain, with clear rights of recourse for supply chain disruption caused by supplier failings.

What do others say?

“Jayne has been my ‘go to’ commercial contracts specialist for many years. She’s technically excellent but also pragmatic and user-friendly. She’s provided support to our in-house team in helping the business manage risk and protect the ‘bottom line’. She’s also great fun to work with.” (Senior Counsel, FTSE 100 business)
