Commercial agreements can control a firm’s relationship with its suppliers and clients, its financial blood-flow, and so they are a crucial factor in its overall success. They can govern its raw-material costs, the outsourcing of essential goods and services, e-commerce, how it exploits Intellectual Property – in fact, every essential aspect of a firm’s activity. So Commercial Agreements need to be carefully negotiated and monitored.
