Three good reasons for a Supply Agreement

  • Posted

Do you really need a written Supply Agreement?  Muneeb Dean, Head of our Company Commercial team, looks at the three top reasons why you do.

  1. To protect your interests - When you enter into any type of commercial contract you want everything to run smoothly. A professional drafted legal agreement, that clearly set-out the terms and conditions, is essential to providing you with peace of mind that your interests are protected.
  1. To provide evidence of terms - commercial contracts don’t have to be in writing, but if there is a dispute and the contract is not in writing it is very difficult to prove the terms agreed.
  2. To avoid disputes - if the worst happens and the contract doesn’t run as smoothly as hoped, a well drafted agreement can help to avoid costly and time consuming disputes. 

That’s why we would always recommend you have a written form of agreement with your key customers and suppliers, and any other appropriate parties.
