The deal is almost done. The future looks bright. You just need an expert to draft an agreement that will make sure your future working relationship will be profitable for all.

I’ll draft your agreement so that you know where you’re going, the terms are clear and you stay in control.

Allow me to work with you and you’ll get:

1. 20 years’ experience as a commercial solicitor in a City law firm, local and national government and higher education. I draft, negotiate and advise on all types of commercial contract.

2. No staff and nothing is subcontracted. You’ll work with me from beginning to end. I won't hide behind emails and I will return your calls.

3. No templates. Contracts are written from scratch every time so they’re personal to you.

4. Fixed and transparent pricing. The meter isn’t running.

5. Specialist knowledge. I work exclusively for business clients.

The success of your business depends on maintaining good relationships with your customers and suppliers. Getting the terms of those relationships clear from the outset could save you a lot of trouble and heartache later on.

Bark away and let's agree your action plan!

I'm Simon Ward, Director of TECHNICAL TERMS. | Small print. Big experience.

Technical Terms Q&A

Technical Terms Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

The clients! Many have had poor experiences with traditional law practices and it's great when they return.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Having worked as a solicitor for 20 years I saw a gap in the market for a consultancy that provides high-quality contract drafting, negotiation and advisory services that provide a significant return on investment to clients.

Why should our clients choose you?

I won't simply send you a document and leave you to it. I will help you to minimise risk, maximise opportunity and maintain control of your business. I'll do this by listening to your needs, understanding the practicalities of the transaction and drafting a contract that reflects those aspects. I'll explain what I've done and how all the clauses work and amend anything you're not happy with. You'll have a document that will protect your interests - in court, if necessary.
