Commercial Law Services

Let Startup Lawyers Brisbane help you contract fairly and wisely with your valuable business partners.

The lifeblood of a healthy business is its commercial transactions. Those transactions are expressed in the form of contracts and deeds. The better quality your legal documents are, the less likely you are to end up in a legal dispute or miscommunicating obligations and damaging a business relationship. If you do end up in court, quality contracts will likely help to narrow the issues in dispute saving you both time and money.

Whether you are contracting with suppliers, customers, business partners or related entities we can prepare a suitable agreement which accurately reflects the intention, obligations and liabilities of each party. Better yet because we take a multidisciplinary approach, we can prepare documents which tech professionals, business people and lawyers alike can clearly understand.

Contracts are at the very heart of the work Startup Lawyers Brisbane undertakes. If you need assistance with a commercial contract you have received, contact us. Remember it is not just the contents of the contract which is important but what has been omitted.

As lawyer and Fellow of the Governance Institute of Australia, our principal can advise across the practical and legal aspects of corporate governance.

Risk, compliance and governance. All the boring stuff you want us to worry about for you!
