KPM Marine specialises in the design and manufacture of safety critical products for the marine and automotive industries, including the development of sophisticated navigation equipment for seafaring vessels.
They came to us at a very early stage, having previously muddled through any legal work internally. The nature of the contracts they were starting to win meant that the time was right to seek professional input, and the rest – as they say – is history. Well actually it’s not history, as they’re still a very happy ongoing client of ours.
The founders engaged us as they felt we were the one firm that was genuinely willing to spend the time needed to understand the ins and outs of what was a very complex and technical business. And they have stayed with us ever since.
Why? Well, they like that we don’t simply send over documents and tell them to fill in the blanks. We make sure they understand each and every clause, how they fit together, and how they may be negotiated, empowering the team to progress contractual negotiations effectively (not to mention pragmatically) in the longer term. Teach a person to fish, and all that.
More specifically, we have helped to draft and negotiate a range of essential commercial contracts – from standard terms of sale, to affiliate and reseller agreements – which are used by KPM Marine on a day-to-day basis as the business scales. And it has been wonderful to watch the business go from strength to strength over the years, in the knowledge that it is proceeding at all times on a sound legal basis.
If you need legal support and think we sound like a great fit, don’t hesitate to get in touch with more information about your business and what you’re looking for. We’ll then make sure the right member of our team gets back to you as soon as possible (usually within an hour or two).
