Commercial / Data Protection

Our team of commercial solicitors can provide advice and assistance on a range of commercial law issues, contracts and disputes. 

If you are an SME, we will help your business grow and flourish by ensuring you have the right legal contracts and advice to ensure you get paid on time, avoid disputes with your suppliers and customers, and meet your compliance obligations (e.g. data protection).

At Waterfront, we help your business to punch above its weight and negotiate on par with major players, so you get the contract terms and business results you deserve irrespective of your size – but we also take a collaborative approach. We make sure you have the best business relationships in place with customers and suppliers to support your business growth for the long term.

When it comes to data protection, which can seem like a minefield, we take the worry out of it for you. We draft or check your documents and processes without breaking the bank, so you can relax knowing you are fully compliant but also commercially protected.

Recent projects we have been involved with include:

  • Negotiating with a big player in insurance on behalf of our SME client in IT and telecoms infrastructure
  • Negotiating with a big player in telecoms on behalf of our IT support client
  • Re-writing the subscriber terms and conditions for our client’s gardening app re-launch
  • Helping our client design their job-matching app business model in compliance with data protection requirements for marketing
