Starting a New Business

Have you decided to venture out on your own? Or, have you recently started running a new business? Are you unsure of the legal issues or requirements associated with running a small business? Our commercial lawyers can help guide you through the various legal requirements, issues and documents needed to start your own business.

Often many people start their own business without seeking legal advice first. This means that when issues do arise in the future, they can become very complicated to solve and can cost you and your business thousands of dollars in legal fees.

When starting a new business, it is often better to have agreements and documents in place which have mechanisms to deal with risks and disputes that may occur in the future. Having these mechanisms is important to ensuring that disputes and issues are resolved in an orderly and inexpensive manner.

Our lawyers can help draft various legal documents and applications needed to commence and run your own business. These include but are not limited to:

  • Company constitutions;
  • Shareholder Agreements;
  • ASIC applications;
  • Food-handling permits;
  • Leases;
  • Structuring agreements and arrangements;
  • Financing agreements and arrangements.

Located at our convenient Lilydale and Berwick offices, our commercial lawyers can assist in setting up your new business wherever your business is located.
