About Us

Our History

We are business lawyers looking after business people. Our clients successfully operate businesses in a wide variety of areas. Running a business is a demanding exercise which requires considerable skill, dedication and attention to detail. There is a good deal more sophistication required nowadays than was the case say 20 years ago and hand in hand with that sophistication goes the need for good expert advice.

We specialise in drafting documents that can be readily understood. Our team has the right level of knowledge to quickly understand what the client needs and to translate that into a practical and easily read legal document.

That approach extends to clients who are buying or selling businesses. We have plenty of experience in acting for people who wish to buy or sell a business or shares in a company and we have been involved in so many transactions of this nature that it is second nature for us to advise our clients on the important steps involved in buying and selling.

Franchising is a common method of conducting business and we are specialists in that area. We act for a number of well known franchise systems as well as for many franchisees in a wide variety of areas. We have the necessary expertise to document and structure new franchise systems, to interpret franchise agreements, advise clients on the appropriate legal structure for their businesses and business ownership, and assist them in dealing with bank loans and seeing transactions through to completion. We also have considerable expertise in commercial leases.

We also advise many of our business clients on personal matters such as preparation of trusts, residential conveyancing, wills and powers of attorney and generally sorting out the legal detail that relates to protection of the individuals who are involved in running businesses.
It is important for us to build long term relationships with clients. Apart from the fact that we can give better advice to clients where we understand their business well there is also a great sense of satisfaction for us in knowing that long term clients are happy clients. We have a great group of clients and we really enjoy working with them.
