Areas of Law
The diversity of our service
Our people and their specialisations cover every area of commercial legal practice. We are proud to work with large and small businesses (and individuals) in South Australia and nationally.
Commercial law is our principal focus. This embraces corporate; commercial; governance and risk; tax, superannuation, and business succession and estate planning; civil litigation and building and construction law. We have particular expertise in dealing with issues commonly faced by family businesses and SMEs.
Our tax, succession and estate planning team is one of the most respected in Australia, with a fresh, modern approach to complex issues.
In addition, we have a wealth of experience in resolving disputes through litigation, including appeals, building and construction disputes, partnership disputes, debt collection and mediation.
Planning for the future is all about protecting what you’ve worked hard for. Proper estate planning advice should cover everything from your superannuation to your favorite ring, as well as decision-making for you when you’re still around. Proper advice can not only make the process less painful, it can also make life much easier for the people you leave behind – saving them time, money and heartache. Every family has issues to deal with and we completely understand.
Whatever legal structure you have, you should have the exit strategy in place. That’s where we can help. In an ideal world, succession planning for your business should start on the day you open your doors. If you are looking at handing over a business, we can help whether you are selling, merging or passing it on the next generation.
