Areas of Practice
We are in the middle of one of the greatest wealth transfers to occur in history. Steps can be taken to better protect your wealth from claims or waste. We can help you ensure your personal dealings are in order and you and your family are well prepared if something goes wrong. We can create trusts for a child’s college fund or draft a will so your assets get distributed the way you prefer. We can also assist you when there is no will and you have to go through Probate (the court that decides what happens to assets after death if someone dies without a will) to be sure they are fairly distributed.
Your home is often your most significant asset. Whether you are buying or selling you must be confident in the process and avoid unnecessary delays or problems. We can assist you with any legal issues related to real estate and property, whether it’s commercial real estate or residential property. We can help you negotiate real estate transactions and draft any documents you will need to buy or sell. We can assist you if a contract or purchase/sale agreement was violated, or when you are having legal issues with a tenant or landlord.
We are familiar with all types of business needs from employment issues to tax compliance. Securing an income stream through the acquisition of a business requires careful attention to properly safeguard your interests. We can help you with business legal processes such as buying or forming a company, negotiating deals and drafting documents such as employment agreements. When you are ready to sell we ensure that your contract is solid and nothing is left to chance.
We are well experienced in divorce, custody battles, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, and other issues surrounding marriage and children. With over 40 years of experience, we understand what you are up against. We recognize the pressure you are under, both in terms of the future of your family and the economic strain you feel. We recognise the additional emotional stresses that often accompany these situations and are sensitive of the need for efficient resolution.
We can typically take on any type of litigation, or lawsuit, that is non-criminal (confirm). We discretely handle any legal issues from infringing neighbours to a personal breach of contract. If you think you may need legal advice, you can feel comfortable discussing any situation with us. In our more than 40 years of practice we have been able to help in many unique situations.
We can authenticate official, Government and personal documents (including contracts) or extracts from Australian government registries (such as ASIC’s registries) for use overseas. We are also here to witness signatures of individuals to documents and authenticate identity, and certify true copies of documents for use overseas.
We offer a risk free consultation, and in that consultation – over the phone, or in person – we can discuss your next steps.
