Business Lawyers.

Purchase a business.

Purchasing another business requires significant due diligence and planning. We help people prepare for business ownership or merging the new entity into an existing business structure.

Sell your business.

Preparing your business for sale appropriately means you will minimise your taxation cost and get the best sale value possible. We have helped clients sell to management teams, industry participants and family members.

Business structuring.

We advise businesses on structuring to minimise your taxation and operational burden. We can assist you in reducing personal legal liability and setting your business up for future investment or for future sale.

Succession planning.

You work hard to build your business, so you want to know that it will be in safe hands when you retire or die. Planning your exit in advance will provide a smooth transition for your business, staff and clients.

Intellectual property.

Protecting intellectual property should be a priority for every business owner. When assessing the value of your business, it is important to look beyond the physical assets and consider your IP as a business asset.

Workplace and safety obligations.

You want to do the right thing by your staff. Navigating your legal obligations for everything from insurance, tax, and superannuation, to employment records and employee health and safety requires strategic advice applicable to your industry.

Partnership agreements.

Many businesses start with a collaboration between friends or relatives who agree in good faith to build a business based on a shared goal. A management agreement will help you resolve issues quickly and effectively.

Property-related transactions.

We advise business owners and managers on their rights and obligations with regard to property transactions and transfers including buying, selling and leasing commercial and industrial property.


From entering into, transferring, extending or ceasing a franchise agreement, we will build an agreement to protect your rights and investment. We work with both franchisors and franchisees.
