What do business lawyers do?

Business lawyers help and advise business owners and stakeholders in every aspect of a business’ dealings. From start-up to the sale or insolvency business lawyers prepare agreements, contracts and advise business owners at each stage. Lawyers prepare the documentation that is used in business day to day transactions such as terms of trade, contracts and agreements. Lawyers can offer value at each stage of a business and can prepare all types of documentation and also assist with property and disputes such as debt recovery and some litigation. Commercial lawyers often have a broad base of knowledge that relates to business and commercial activities and can assist with complex matters such as corporation law, franchising to employment law and taxation to name but a few.

How do I find a good business lawyer?

Good business lawyers should have a high level of expertise across a variety of different areas of law and this generally takes years of experience to obtain. And finding a good lawyer is not always just about the lawyer but, also the team and firm that support the lawyer. Finding a good lawyer for your business can be hard but, asking some questions and finding out their experience level can help you to decide if they are capable.
The best commercial lawyers will be experienced and their work should be of a very high quality and they should be very professional. Customer Service and experience will also be a factor in deciding a lawyer for your business. It will be almost impossible to know this out before you meet with a lawyer and it may take up to part way through a matter to decide if they are a quality service or not.
They should also be delivering value to you in your initial meeting and have a good sense for business and have a clear understanding on the issues and be able to educate you on the laws and legal processes as you are going through your matter.

Our business lawyers and their teams work hard to ensure that you are provided with the best legal advice for your business and we look to establish long term relationships with our clients.
