Business & Commercial Law

Starting and running your own business can be exciting and extremely rewarding. It is also complex and can be fraught with legalities that you may not have the time nor the expertise to recognise or manage.  Whether you are starting, developing or exiting your business, you need a lawyer who can provide you with reliable straightforward legal advice and allow you to focus on what you do best – running your business.

At Sullivan Braham we believe in fostering strong relationships with our clients.  We take the time to understand your business goals, challenges and aspirations.  Armed with this knowledge we provide tailored solutions to meet your specific needs.

There are many important matters to consider if you are involved in business, whether a small family owned and operated business or a large commercial enterprise. We are able to assist you to negotiate the potential pitfalls and provide practical advice and guidance in relation to the legal aspects, including:

  • drafting and reviewing commercial contracts, and finance and security documents
  • acting in the purchase and sale of corporations and businesses (including franchises)
  • preparing shareholder, partnership and joint venture agreements
  • advising on director and board responsibilities
  • advising on independent contractor and employment issues and drafting independent contractor agreements and employment contracts
  • advising on succession planning for farms and small businesses
  • advising on insurance policy coverage issues

Our business lawyers will provide you with timely, high quality and cost effective legal advice over the phone, in person or online. Our lawyers work flexibly and are therefore able to provide advice and assistance in a manner and at a time that suits you.

If your legal fees are incurred in connection with the operation of a business you should check with your accountant whether you may be able to claim a tax deduction for the expense.
