Business Law

We assist our clients with business law to ensure they are compliant with local, state and federal obligations such as the Corporations Act, Duties Act, Income Tax Assessment Acts, Australian Consumer Law and Retail Leases Act.

This encompasses both structuring, agreements (e.g. loan agreements, service agreements, referral agreements) and day-to-day legal operations management.

Separately we work with our clients and their risk profile to manage their legal risk with clients, creditors, government bodies and other third parties.

 We work with clients running small to medium sized businesses and have experience working with multi-national and listed corporations.  We can assist whether you are running your business through a unit trust, company, partnership, family trust or sole trader.

  • Property advice
  • All business contracts
  • Commercial leasing
  • Tax advice and restructuring

Meet Nick

Nick provides legal and tax solutions to start-up/small businesses and individuals.  Quite separate to law, Nick understands business and has hands-on experience launching and running start-up organisations, including some of Australia’s first group-purchasing and consumer power platforms.

Nick is on the Board of the Crowd Funding Institute of Australia and is a Founder & Director of successful Australian crowdfunding platform


We are business law specialists.  Compared to others that practice everything under the sun, our specialty is business law and all facets related to it (e.g. tax and property).

Separately, other than saving cost, our clients love being able to see and obtain the services of a lawyer and accountant for their business at the same time – there is no need to see and explain your circumstances and structure multiple times.


Initial meetings are by appointment only – our preference is to schedule an initial phone discussion so that we can get to know your business and to discuss how we can assist you and/or your business.  From there, we are either available on a time-cost basis for ad-hoc advice or we provide fixed fees for certain services (e.g. drafting of agreements).

This can be discussed with our principal lawyer and accountant to ensure your specific circumstances and goals are considered.

I engaged Nick for a small thing (writing standard contracts).

His service has been fantastic – quick responses and making suggestions beyond my expectations.
Based on this service quality, I’m looking at moving my regular accounts to his care.
