Insolvency

is a general term which includes personal insolvency which is called bankruptcy and company bankruptcy which means the company is insolvent. Trustees are for bankruptcy and Liquidators are for companies. We advise on all these issues as well as advising directors on their position. Call us if you think you might be in danger.

Contracts / Agreements

can be anything from leases, agreements to sell businesses, or something in writing to confirm a deal. We can design them for you or help you if you already have one but it hasn't worked out.

Conveyancing

is agreements to buy or sell properties including strata title units. You need a contract before you can advertise your property for sale.

"Dear Deb,

A big thank you for your excellent attention and patient service.
Jewel and I are very excited about becoming landowners and we are busily planning the design and build of our new home.
Your account is in order, thank you, and we will settle it shortly.
Again, many thanks,

Kindest regards,

Employment Law

includes advising you on a contract of employment for a new job or taking action for you if the new job doesn't work out.

Commercial Litigation

includes court proceedings or settling disputes before court proceedings start. The subject matter of the dispute can be almost anything. The subject matter and the amount of money involved govern which court or tribunal your dispute is going. The aim is to settle the dispute before it goes to any court or, if that can't be done, then to settle it while it is in court on advantageous terms to you.

"Dear Deb,

Many thanks for the good news, appreciate the help and support from you and your staff. I am glad you were on our side, it has been a long haul appreciate your patience with us in the whole process, I will sort out the invoice also.

Regards and thanks,
Jim and Lyn"
