Lawyers who understand entrepreneurial thinking combined with sector specialists to help navigate the legal challenges of starting a new venture

  • Finance - to negotiate and document any business finance requirements
  • Commercial contracts - to draft and negotiate critical contractual arrangements with suppliers, employees and business partners
  • Corporate advisory and governance - to advise you on the most appropriate business structure and your governance requirements
  • Property - to assist you to acquire any property assets necessary for the new venture or to negotiate and document your leases for the new venture
  • Intellectual property - to ensure any IP you've brought to the new venture is appropriately protected
