You have a feeling things could be working better, but you’re not exactly sure how. You might be unsure where all your signed contracts are (or how many you have!).
Maybe you’re looking to grow the business significantly, or to prepare it for sale, and want to make sure that you have good commercial contracting foundations to support your growth and maximise your sale value. Or you just want an objective view of how effective your contracting is, to help you focus resources where they’re most needed.
A commercial contract audit looks at your contracting function from all angles. It invites input from key sales, delivery, operations, legal and financial staff to find out how well your contracts support each business area. This deep insight helps you plan resources, tools, processes and training to increase your contracting effectiveness. By building on success and targeting weaker areas, you get maximum return.
If your resources don’t have the time or the expertise, we’ll conduct a thorough review of your contract estate. This will uncover risks and opportunities, helping you to plan and prioritise, manage and mitigate. Once you know what’s lurking in your contracts, you can put measures in place to deal with it appropriately.

Getting from “we’ve won the business!” to “the contract is signed” can be a slow and painful journey. Making sure your team uses the contract effectively to manage your commercial relationships, securing your profits and minimising risks, can be difficult.
Building on the insights from your commercial contract audit, we work with you to develop commercial contracting processes that:
- Engage the sales, delivery, operations and finance teams at appropriate points
- Provide a simple, easy-to-follow structure that helps your staff use the contract effectively
- Speed up contract negotiations, reducing conflict and improving confidence
- Ensure you hold on to your profits as you go through the contracting lifecycle
- Make your business more efficient, saving time and cost while managing risk
You may be starting out in business, creating a new product or service, or just feel that your terms need a refresh. Perhaps you’ve been struggling to get others to sign your terms, and feel they should be more equitable. Or maybe you’ve been let down by your existing agreements, when a deal went sour and you were left with no recourse.
Once we’ve identified the right structure for your deals, we’ll ask questions to figure out how you do what you do, what makes a deal successful and where things are most likely to go wrong.
Our proven six-step contract drafting process has created over a thousand tailored contracts for businesses like yours. We’ll create terms that reflect your brand ‘personality’ and business values. They will become a valuable contributor to your sales process rather than something negative that gets in the way of selling.
You can have tailored, business-focussed agreements that support your business objectives, manage your risk and increase positive deal outcomes – without spending a fortune.
