We are a full service commercial law firm with significant experience in a range of areas. We know what businesses need and ensure that all advice we provide and documents we prepare are clear and useful.

We provide advice in relation to Corporations Act requirements including in respect of directors’ duties, fundraising provisions, share transfer and share issue processes, and shareholder and director meeting procedures. We prepare tailored constitutions and shareholders agreements and advise on corporate governance issues.

We prepare and review all manner of agreements and contracts, including supply and distribution agreements, service agreements, contractor agreements and executive employment agreements. We focus on those issues that are important to the particular industry or business and take steps to ensure that the agreement meets the required objectives.

We prepare standard form contracts, terms of conditions and disclaimers for regular use in businesses or to be published on websites. We balance legal protection with commercial reality.

We also advise and assist with disputes regarding proper corporate governance, or disputes between shareholders.

As an example of our work, we advised a well known SA winery in relation to distribution agreements in the USA, and a major agricultural equipment manufacturer in relation to distribution agreements in Europe and Russia.

We also act for a major retirement village provider in relation to its general corporate and commercial requirements.
