A proper contract is like tailoring – you need detailed information from the client to draw it up, and it will be done exactly according to the client’s needs. It often needs to be updated on an ongoing basis.
The Sirel & Partners Law Firm provides you with comprehensive legal advice on all contractual matters. We represent you in pre-contractual negotiations so that you can conclude the deals on the best possible terms and be fully aware of the rights, obligations and risks involved already in advance. We prepare contracts, framework agreements and amendments to contracts tailored to your needs, taking into account the specificities of your business.
We carry out a legal analysis of the interpretation of contracts, assess compliance of the contracts with the effective legislation and the legal risks arising to you from the contract. We represent you in filing complaints and claims arising from the violation of contracts and in extrajudicial and judicial proceedings.
