Commercial Contracts


“Empathy is seeing with the eyes of another, listening with the ears of another, and feeling with the heart of another”. Alfred Adler


Civil and commercial contracts increasingly require an in-depth knowledge of the law and sector where the individual or company is operating, in order to provide solutions for a complex and new type of business relationship. On numerous occasions the traditional type of contract is not suitable and a non-standard contract is required, where it is vital to define the scope of the rights and obligations of the parties and the liability accepted by them.

Ramón y Cajal’s Contracts practice is formed by a team of lawyers specialising in the negotiation, preparation, interpretation and performance of all kinds of civil and commercial contracts entered into in the course of business.

The practice forms part of the multidisciplinary team of lawyers specialising in energy-related matters. Its high degree of specialisation in the design and negotiation of contracts and agreements relating to the development, acquisition, construction, maintenance and financing of renewable energy projects (SPAs, APAs, PDAs and DSAs, agreements between developers, works contracts, EPCs, O&M agreements, land agreements, financing and financial collateral agreements, etc.) sets it apart and provides added value.

In addition, the Contracts practice works closely with the Litigation practice in advising on and acting as defence counsel in commercial and other disputes relating to the energy sector and all types of business agreements, both national and international.
