Commercial Contracts

Commercial contracts are the background to the running of your business but are often the one element of legal work that is left behind.

Our contract law solicitors will take the time to get to know you and your business inside and out before making any recommendations or commencing any drafting.

Commercial contracts come in all shapes and sizes and the right terms need to be considered and fit for purpose. Our team of business contract lawyers will talk through all elements of the work with you paying particular focus to your core goals and desired outcomes to ensure that this is translated into a legally enforceable and clear contract.

Excellent service

I engaged the services of Goughs Solicitors in Trowbridge, in particular Ailie Peacock, to act on my behalf for the sale of my house. Ailie was always clear with her advice, acted in a timely manor and answered any questions I had almost immediately. She was very proactive in dealing with the other parties involved in a slightly convoluted chain.

Ailie also managed a very late request from our buyers with calm efficiency and the utmost professionalism. The end result was a smooth sale and completion, with remarkably little stress on our part. I would not hesitate from using them again.

Rhianna Cole

The solicitor I dealt with at Goughs, Rhianna Cole, was an absolute star, I cannot fault her in any way at all. She made everything in the situation I was in so easy to understand, and she guided me through an extremely stressful time, with extreme professionalism, yet a very personal and sensitive touch. Can't big them up enough.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Made first-time buying a (relatively) simple process!

Sophie was very attentive and responsive and understood the need to act quickly in regard to our purchase process. She was diligent with the paperwork and was very easy to talk to and clear at explaining what was required in terms of action from our side and from the seller.
