Through our depth of experience in the commercial sector, we are able to provide expert, practical advice on any business or commercial issue.

Group Governance and Succession Planning

When undertaking business or even owning property with other people, it is imperative that there is an agreement to govern the relationship between the owners. This helps provide the parties with an understanding of their obligations to each other, but also sets expectations to ensure no surprises during the course of the undertaking.  We can advise on the right structure for any proposed business or property syndicate, as well as governance requirements and best practice.

Corporations Act Advisory

The Corporations Act is a significant piece of legislation, with compliance critical when running a company. We continue to assist clients in obtaining a practical understanding of the Corporations Act, and provide detailed advice on matters including procedural requirements in holding company meetings, share acquisition and disposals, share buy-backs, and director’s duties.
