Advising on agreements for the outsourcing of logistics for a leading dairy company in the UK at short notice. This was one of a number of agreements that we have looked at for our client, previously providing packaging, promotions and related sales advice. By taking the time to talk through the charging provisions under the agreements we were able to ensure that there our client was not required to pay twice for the same service and that the agreements would be robust in different situations (such as volumes being lower, commodity prices increasing, fuel/transport costs increasing, customer requirements changing) and ensuring that these scenarios had been tested before the agreement was finalised.
Advised a pre-wholesaling and contract logistics company on the structuring of its pre-wholesaling arrangements. This involved ensuring that competition law wasn't breached and that agency and retention of title issues were dealt with properly. These agreements have since stood the test of a very challenging customer of our client’s (and their lawyers) who queried every aspect of the arrangements.

Our strong insurance sector background meant that we understood the services being outsourced, the practicalities of dealing with claims and writing policies, and dealing with the regulatory issues involved in the agreements.
