We regularly advise small to medium companies on corporate structuring, capital raising and other Corporate Law requirements.

Privacy Compliance. Privacy compliance has become an increasing concern for company directors over the last few years. With the implementation of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Australia’s relatively new mandatory data breach notification scheme, privacy compliance is taking its position as a leading governance issue. IT Lawyers Brisbane can assist with all your privacy compliance needs and advise in the event of a data breach.

Small Scale Offerings. Colloquially known as the 20/12 rule, section 708 of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) allows for certain capital raising without the expensive disclosure documents. That said, nothing in the act excuses misleading and deceptive conduct. These sorts of transactions carry long-term risks if not carefully considered.

Startups. If you are looking at chucking in your job and bootstrapping your own venture, or if you are about to kick off with a small capital raising, speak to us about Corporate Law and governance. We regularly assist entrepreneurs and business owners in getting their dreams off the ground. In fact, it is the best part of our job.

Company Secretarial. If you are planning an exit strategy for your business one of the most important tasks is maintaining your company records. Millions of dollars may be lost at due diligence if proper records are not kept. Not only is it critical to maintain company registers for your own altruistic reasons, you are required to comply with Corporate Law or face substantial penalties. IT Lawyers Brisbane has its own Chartered Secretary on staff to assist clients with their corporate governance requirements.
