Practice Areas

We are commercial specialists, focused on delivering the key legal services needed by businesses and their owners. Our primary areas of practice are described below. In addition to the areas outlined, we can also assist our clients in a number of other related areas of legal services.  Please feel free to contact us for a no-obligation discussion regarding your requirements.

Commercial Law

Like many firms, we have lawyers able to advise on commercial legal issues that affect businesses and their owners. What makes us different however is our focus on providing pragmatic legal solutions.


We are recognised experts in franchising law.  Whether you have an existing franchise system, a great business you want to expand, or are just looking to purchase a franchised business, we can help.

Intellectual Property

Intellectual property (“IP”) is an important and valuable asset, often overlooked by business owners and their advisors. We work closely with our clients to identify and protect their IP.  Our aim is to help clients secure their brand and competitive advantages, increasing the value of their business while ensuring they are protected against a range of risks.


Our experienced property team can assist with your property transaction, regardless of whether it is a “simple conveyancing” or a complicated commercial property deal.  Commercial leasing is also a speciality of our firm, and we can assist both tenants and landlords to avoid the “fishhooks” in any leasing arrangement.


Almost any lawyer can tell you whether an employment or contractor arrangement complies with the law.  Where we differ from most lawyers however, is that we also look to understand, and then protect our client’s underlying business interests.
