When To See A Commercial Lawyer In Logan?

August 22, 2022

When to seek commercial law advice

You can benefit from commercial law advice at any stage of your business, for example, at the following stages.

Starting up -Do you have a business idea but are unsure where to start the ball rolling?

For example, do you need to register a company name or trade name? What about ABNs and ACNs, and when do you need to register for GST?

If you take advice from a lawyer when setting up your company, you can be sure that you have thought of everything and can focus on what you do best, whatever it is.


Advice on structure -Choosing a business structure is not easy.

Why should you use a lawyer to help you understand what business structure you should be using?

  • Should you operate as a sole trader, partnership, company or trust?
  • Depending on your chosen structure, you will have various roles (and responsibilities).
  • Do you understand the tax and personal liability obligations of each structure? 
  • What about the implications for your succession planning (i.e. what happens if you die unexpectedly)? 
  • How do your obligations as an owner or director differ? 
  • Can you list your business for sale? Is it able to be sold as an asset, or is there a structure stopping you, like a partnership?

Questions about employees and contractors

As an owner, you typically start off doing everything yourself, but, unfortunately, you can't be everywhere and do everything, so every small business needs a little help at some point.

Getting it right with employees and contractors is crucial to your business's longevity, reputation and brand. 

To ensure your business is set up according to your needs, you should speak to a business lawyer whenever you change your staffing.

Commercial Leasing Logan

Leasing allows the parties to enter into a contract in which one party owns the premises to be leased, and the other party uses or intends to use the premises for a specified period.

Business Structuring

Whether you are:

  • A serial entrepreneur.
  • Buying an existing business or setting up your own business as a trader.
  • Starting on your own is an exciting time.

No one starts with the intention of losing their wealth or having unpleasant legal disputes with their business partners; unfortunately, this is often the outcome. However, investing in sound legal advice early on can benefit your business in unexpected ways.

Buying and selling a Logan-based Business

Commercial Agreements In Logan Brisbane

Our commercial and business lawyers have extensive experience preparing partnerships and joint ventures. They can provide quick and realistic advice on the rights and obligations of the parties involved. In addition, we can advise you on these agreements' rights and obligations and suggest how to overcome the challenges.

It is essential to have a written agreement as this will cover most of the areas where the parties may be in dispute, for example:

  •     What are the expectations of each party?
  •     What kind of capital should each party contribute?
  •     How will the company be managed financially?
  •     What is the decision-making process?
  •     Can the parties compete with each other, and to what extent?
  •     What should happen if the agreement is terminated?
  •     What should happen if one of the parties is unable to contribute?

Since disputes can always arise between the parties and the parties' memory may diminish over time, agreements between the parties should be documented in the early stages of a business relationship.
