We are experienced in providing legal advice across a broad array of corporate and commercial matters including:
- Commercial contracts and transactions
- Corporate advisory and strategic structuring
- Sale of business
- Shareholder and joint venture agreements
- Mergers and acquisitions
- Competition and consumer advice
- Franchising and licensing
We take a direct approach with our advice work and commercial negotiations. We value accuracy and conciseness in our drafting and efficiency in our matter management. We will not take five pages to document something that can be properly captured in one page and we will not have a team of lawyers working on a commercial matter which can properly and efficiently be handled by one partner or experienced lawyer. The result, we believe, is value for money for our clients, who benefit from direct answers and working closely with us to develop and execute their strategic goals.
The Courts are always being asked to unravel and interpret commercial transactions between parties who, when the agreement was drafted, may not have foreseen any risks or ambiguity in the way in which the transaction was to be construed or implemented. Unlike firms and practitioners that only specialise in commercial law, we have an added advantage in that our commercial lawyers are also litigators. This allows us to draw on years of experience in litigating disputes, and seeing first-hand how the Courts have approached different commercial transactions, to the way in which we approach our corporate and commercial advice and drafting.
