Contracts and trading

It doesn’t matter what line of business you’re in, or how big or small you are, the well-used warning that ‘devils lurk in the detail’ applies equally to you – never more so than when it comes to the deals that you make, or more specifically, the terms on which you make them. On this page we cover contracts and day-to-day trading issues, including intellectual property rights, disputes and managing your business.


The content on the Markel Law Hub has been prepared by Markel Law LLP and it’s specified partners. It’s intended as guidance only and not to be regarded as a substitute for consultation with one of our solicitors or experts, since every case will ultimately turn on its own particular facts and circumstances. We recommend that you use our materials as your starting point and be aware that you sometimes have to follow a set procedure before taking any action, especially in an employment context. If you are in any doubt, we’d suggest that you get in touch with us and we’ll talk you through your options on how to get the right legal advice.
