Corporate and Commercial

We offer assistance and advice across a wide range of commercial and corporate areas of law.

We understand the life-cycle of a business: from formation or acquisition, to building your business and maximising profit, and eventually ending your association with the business through sale or succession.  We have the expertise to help you every step of the way.

Receiving considered advice and arranging for the correct documentation to be in place is critical to avoid the expense and stress of disputes.

We pride ourselves on providing commercial advice that is both easy to understand and technically accurate.  But most important of all, we always strive to provide a commercially sensible recommendation to any commercial issue.

We are experienced dealing with a diverse client base, including sole-traders, small businesses, not-for-profit organisations and Government entities all the way to large private companies and listed corporate entities.  Whatever your business requires, we will help.

Our commercial and corporate services include:

  • business structuring
  • business and share acquisitions and sales
  • shareholder, unitholder, partnership and joint venture agreements
  • corporate governance
  • franchising and intellectual property licensing and protection
  • legal due diligence
