What is a commercial lawyer?

A commercial lawyer focuses on the financial aspects of running your business. Commercial lawyers provide expert advice on a range of areas relating to financial services, companies and securities, and banking. This includes the sale and distribution of goods and services, and the financing of these transactions.

If you are setting up or running a business, you will need a lawyer with experience in commercial law. A commercial lawyer will safeguard your business from any legal situation that may arise.

Our network of experienced commercial lawyers have over 5 years of commercial law experience and operate on a fixed-fee basis. They are well equipped to protect all commercial aspects of your business.


When will I need a commercial lawyer?

When setting up or running a business, there a range of legal options you will need to consider. Some situations where you will need to consult with a commercial lawyer include:

  • If you are about to start a company, partnership or any other business structure and want to ensure you are legally compliant;
  • If you want to expand and raise capital for your business;
  • If you need assistance with any commercial and retail leases;
  • If you are purchasing or selling a business;
  • If you are purchasing or selling property;
  • If you are in need of general advice about commercial law.

If your business will be involved in any commercial transactions, it is important to be on top of all your legal needs. Consulting with a commercial lawyer will ensure that your business has the right legals in place.


Why do I need a commercial lawyer?

Commercial law covers many aspects of the law. Businesses can experience a series of commercial problems that are particularly complex. Common business issues that may arise include contractual disputes, hostile negotiations over the sale of a business and a variety of financial issues.

As a diverse and constantly changing area of law, it’s imperative to hire a lawyer with expertise in commercial law. This will ensure your business is protected and that your best interests are always kept.


What will they provide?

Our commercial lawyers will provide you with the right legal advice and documents you will need to safeguard your business. This may include customised documentation for your business such as commercial contracts and leases, employee and business sales agreements just to name a few. Our lawyers can also review and update any of your existing legal documents.

Hiring a commercial lawyer to address your legal needs ensures that your business runs safely and smoothly.


What should I expect to pay?

Great service and outcome

Kim came highly recommended on the lawpath platform and every touchpoint with her and her team was great. Some of the subject matter was new to us and kim took the time to understand our needs and educate us in key areas also.The pricing was competitive and the turnaround time for the first draft and edits was excellent. I'd definitely recommend kim and her team.
