We provide commercially sound advice

Many business owners want advice that is clearly articulated, and to be protected. We understand many of our clients are unaware of the range of legal issues and potential pitfalls. We work with our clients to consider and advise on what will suit them best. Competent commercial lawyers will be able to balance and articulate legal risks and the advantages and disadvantages of a particular course so clients can make the most informed decision.

Commercial lawyers provide advice that will help protect clients to conduct and grow their business.

Many legal agreements such as distribution agreements and leases need to carefully consider a wide range of issues.

Getting business agreements drafted correctly and to a very high standard helps to ensure that disputes are prevented and there is no confusion about the roles and rights of the parties.

Our lawyers’ approach their work with business owners to first understand their commercial needs. Then draft agreements and contracts or provide advice that is tailored to their business needs. We understand the issues that business owners face and strive to provide relevant advice to fit immediate and longer-term consequences.

To be an effective business lawyer requires balancing a client’s business needs with the risks and future legal needs.

Aside from expert drafting skills and commercial nouse, business lawyers also have to be able to negotiate and advocate for their clients. This skill of being able to broker an alignment between the parties is essential and not to be underestimated.

We understand that each business and industry have its own individual features and that there is no “one size fits all” approach in commercial law.

This is why, as commercial lawyers, we will take the time to understand the culture of your business, its objectives and its goals in order to determine the best approach. This means that we are able to find the best solution to protect you and your business dealings both immediately and ongoing.
