Industry-leading corporate and commercial legal services to support you through every stage of business.

Corporate and commercial law in Australia can be confusing. We are here to guide you to achieve your goals, so you can get on with the business of running your business.

How we can support your business

Our corporate and commercial lawyers offer something most others do not – experience owning and running their own businesses. We know what it is like to be in the start-up, scale-up and exit phases of business; we have been there, and we are here to deconstruct the lessons we have learnt to apply them for the benefit of your business.

Helping businesses of all shapes and sizes


Our team works with start-ups to assess risk profiles and to implement the appropriate corporate structure for their operation. We also ensure our clients are prepared for growth by implementing the relevant legal agreements, advising on director’s duties and governance, and reviewing capitalisation structures.


We help scale-ups by implementing a corporate restructuring plan that reflects the growth of the business. This strategy considers tax and risk implications balanced with asset protection. We also assist businesses in growth phases to meet regulatory compliance requirements and often, to consider the parameters under which they can raise additional funds.


We assist owners looking to exit by conducting a legal review to consider all opportunities and to ensure compliance in anticipation of a potential buyer conducting their own due diligence. We also assist with business acquisitions and mergers to ensure the best possible outcomes for our clients and deliver specialist negotiation services (if required).
