Commercial Law

Looking after your business

Our lives are inextricably bound up with the commercial world. Commercial relationships whether they be business to business or business to consumer give rise to a need for a wide range of commercial legal services. Whether it is the terms of trade for the supply of goods and services, the structuring and governance of companies, partnerships and other business owning entities, the sale and purchase of businesses and equipment, the licensing of intellectual property, franchising and the resolution of commercial disputes all come within the broad ambit of commercial law.

When you are entering into commercial arrangements it is imperative that you put in place structures and documents that achieve your intended commercial outcomes. This is the case whether it is a contract for supply of goods and services, and agreement for sale and purchase of businesses, acquisition of shares, formation of a company, partnership agreements or any of the myriad of other commercial relationships.
