Our commercial lawyers
It's our view the obligation is on us to understand your requirements not your obligation to explain them to us.
Our customers come from a variety of backgrounds. In order to best serve them we must be able to speak their language, understand their needs and adapt to their industries.
Prior to coming to law, our principal operated as a management consultant, running his own firm and consulting in the IT domain to some of the largest corporate multinationals and government agencies throughout the world. His experience across many industries allows him to comprehend the commercial and economic realities and provide real world legal advice. But more importantly this means we can communicate on your terms.
Not all law...
A good commercial lawyer can assist your business in identifying risks, ensuring compliance and help you develop positive business relationship.
Business Success: We are absolute believers that business success comes from developing great business relationships. Preferably with others who do things better than you do them yourself. A good commercial lawyer can draft an agreement which helps to ensure both parties understand and are therefore willing to comply with the obligations contained within. Good fences make good neighbours.
Compliance: Australia is certainly a country of red tape, a good commercial lawyer can help you comply with the plethora of legislation, regulation and codes which apply to your business. Probably the two most common laws which our clients must comply with are the Corporations Act and the Australian Consumer Law. But compliance goes further than legislation, the contracts you enter into with others are likely to impose obligations on you. Typically, these include obligations of confidence and requirements associated with Privacy.
Risk and Governance: Our principal is a fellow of the Governance Institute of Australia, a Chartered Secretary and designated a Risk and Governance professional. He regularly advises boards on all matters of procedure and risk management. As expressed above compliance requirements are imposed on all businesses and represent a major component of good governance. We can help ensure you comply with the obligations imposed on you by the Corporations Act. If you have an exit strategy and it involves selling your business to a third party or listing your business on the stock exchange, it is imperative you put good governance at the forefront of your mind. It is similarly important for those involved in capital raising.
Commercial Lawyers who are not all fire and brimstone
Looking for Commercial Lawyers to rain fire and brimstone down on your adversary, you will not find those people working for us.
We are relationship builders and menders. We are happy to help you take a conciliatory approach to resolving disputes, but we have had way too much experience in litigation do any more.
If it really comes to it, we can direct you to a litigation lawyer who we know and work with, but our view is the courts are the last bastion of the desperate. That’s not to say they don’t serve a purpose and you may end up there, its just that it is unfortunate if you do.
