Your Business

We are in business ourselves and provide practical and sensible advice on commercial law.

BUYING OR SELLING A BUSINESS OR FRANCHISE?

We are able to assist with:

Sale and Purchase of Business

We prepare contracts for the Sale of Business in order to protect your interests and minimise your exposure. We obtain the required documents and provide advice on what matters to include in the contract.

If you are purchasing a business, we will review the contract and negotiate its terms on your behalf, liaise with your finance provider and ensure the contract contains appropriate vendor warranties, trade restraints, licenses and agreements. We also deal with the transfer of any existing lease of the business premises or equipment or, if necessary, negotiate a lease on new terms.

We give advice on the form of proposed purchase entity (sole trader, partnership or company) and the implications of each type of structure.

Retail and Commercial Leases

We act for Lessors in the preparation of retail and commercial leases.

If you are a Lessee, we will review and negotiate the terms of any commercial or retail lease and ensure proper disclosure is made pursuant to the Retail Leases Act 1994 (NSW).

Business Agreements

We can provide advice on various related agreements such as:

  • Franchises
  • Shareholder agreements and contracts
  • Partnership, company deeds, trust deeds
  • Contracts
  • Loan Agreements and mortgages

We can also assist you in any business related disputes.
