We work with companies to build their in-house legal infrastructure 

How we work

How we work

We partner with you to develop the right solution bespoke for your business

You don’t work 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday, and neither do we. We are there when you need us, and likely at the beach when you don't.


We work with a select number of clients to ensure quality and timeliness of our services. Most importantly we want to make sure you have a positive experience when dealing with us.


We are focused on positive outcomes for you. We don't just create legal documents. We help you to focus on key outcomes and to work through matters in a methodical and diligent manner to ensure those outcomes are met.


We have experience helping businesses with a wide range of commercial matters, and supporting them in whatever phase of the business life cycle they are in. Whether you are in a start-up phase, growth phase, or exit phase – we have the right solution for you.


What we offer

What we offer

Whether you are looking to build a successful business, or develop a product to disrupt an industry - we want to partner with you 


  • Establishing the right corporate structure for your new business – the focus here is making sure the structure is flexible to evolve as your business grows, but also to ensure that it protects the wealth and value that you will create. Our experience has been that the best results will be achieved if we work hand-in-hand with your accountant and other business advisors.

  • Developing the right commercial agreements with the stakeholders that are going to help drive the growth of your business, including but not limited to joint venture agreements, employee agreements, contractor agreements, and referrer agreements.



  • Completing strategic transactions (e.g. acquisitions of other businesses if you are looking to diversify and/or integrate other services with your primary business) that are going to accelerate the growth of your business.

  • Being a supportive sounding board for your great ideas, and helping you to implement them.



  • Preparing your business for sale (yes selling your business is just like selling properties – you want to present it in the best possible light to support its valuation and attract greater interest).

  • Completing the sale process to ensure that you maximise your return and exit the business on your terms.
