Commercial contracts


De Metz advises on commercial contracts such as (the drafting of) general terms and conditions for various commercial enterprises, distribution and agency agreements, licensing agreements, cooperation, management and subcontracting agreements.

Contract law plays a crucial role in national and international trade and business. Although in principle parties are free to decide and agree on the contents of their contract, certain mandatory rules of law may apply, which may not be deviated from. Certain types of contracts, such as franchise and agency contracts, are to a large extent governed by mandatory rules. This is the case also when contracting with consumers and using general terms and conditions.
