Our team has experience and expertise in the following areas:
If you are not sure whether your legal problem falls within one of the areas listed above, please contact us as we may be able to assist or refer you to another firm who can.
However, please note that we do not assist with matters relating to criminal law, family law or personal injury claims.
Our litigation and dispute resolution services include mediation, arbitration and conciliation.
We can represent you in various jurisdictions including the Local, District, Supreme Courts as well as the Federal Circuit, Federal and High Courts. We also assist clients who wish to engage in alternative dispute resolution procedures such as negotiations, mediation, arbitration and conciliation.
We provide assistance in relation to capital raisings, including IPOs, rights issues and placements. We also assist businesses and individuals with the sale and purchase of businesses.
We can assist by developing effective commercialisation strategies to get your products or services into the market. The right strategy depends on things such as your individual circumstances, business capabilities, current competition in the market and access to finance.
Protecting your IP including copyright, patents, trade marks, designs, domain names, know-how, confidential information and trade secrets in Australia and around the world is also important to many of our clients. To enforce your IP rights, you may require our assistance in detecting and preventing infringements and using alternative dispute resolution methods and commercial litigation.
We also assist with securing new IP rights through assignment, structuring of licensing agreements and can help facilitate negotiations.
We can prepare a range of different contracts tailored to suit your needs from shareholders agreements, joint venture contracts, executive services agreements, consultancy agreements to manufacturing and distribution agreements, software development agreements and contracts with suppliers or customers.
We also assist clients with corporate restructures, share buy-backs and providing advice on corporate governance and due diligence issues.
We can assist with residential sales and purchases (conveyancing) if you are looking to sell or buy real estate. We also review and provide advice on commercial and retail leases.
We can assist by preparing a Will for you to protect the interests of those who are important to you including your family, friends, favourite charities and other beneficiaries after your death. We can advise on all matters related to executorship in seeking Probate (i.e. where there is a Will) or Administration (i.e. where there is no Will).
We also dedicate some of our time to working on pro bono matters including cases which involve international human rights and asylum seeker issues in the Federal Circuit, Federal and High Courts.
