Our philosophy is simple.
Our clients want good service.
We provide it.

Business and Corporate Advisory

Our clients cover the whole spectrum of business. They include national and local companies in insurance, finance, property development, the media, construction, new technology, franchising, importing and retailing.

We also understand the problems of small business, and have many long-standing small business clients. Over the years of our association some have grown into major businesses.

Our expertise includes:

+ corporate governance

+ joint ventures, partnerships and co-ownership structures (establishing and restructuring)

+ service agreements

+ franchising

+ licensing

+ insolvency (bankruptcy, administration, receivership
and liquidation)

To assist our clients we maintain close contact with their accountants, so that the taxation, litigation and financing requirements of their businesses are properly resolved.

For many business clients we undertake negotiations with the Federal bureaucracy. The contacts we have developed over the decades give you ready access to the right person in the right Department or Statutory Authority.

Of course our work does not end there. We act for a variety of State and Federal Government bodies, research institutions and employee associations.

We have longstanding ties with firms of solicitors around the Australia, and can help with establishing your business interstate and overseas.

We place a special emphasis on what might be called “preventive law”. Attention to client’s existing procedures will often show problems which can be easily corrected now, but if left untouched may result in expensive litigation in the future. To encourage our clients to review their existing procedures and contracts, we are prepared to offer very reasonable quotes for such legal audit work.
