Business

It is an unfortunate fact of life that the business world (from the smallest to the
largest business) is becoming more complicated.

The Government has passed a large number of new laws since the early 1980′s, all
of which have a very important effect on your business. These laws have the effect
of imposing consequences on you for a wide range of actions. You can now be in
breach of the law in a number of ways without even realising it.

We believe that a better knowledge of legal issues will improve your business
performance and prevent costly breaches of the law. Areas of law in which we can
assist include:

  • Incorporating a company
  • Assisting with commercial leases such as advising on the lease, drafting the lease, lease renewals, deeds of assignment of lease, deeds of rent review
  • Assisting in the transfer of company shares
  • Assisting in change of directors
  • Structuring or restructuring a company
  • Dealing with matters involved in restraints of trade
  • Helping you comply with the Consumer Guarantees Act and Fair Trading Act
  • Advising you on whether or not to be a sole trader or work in a partnership
  • Advice on the buying and selling of a business
  • Advice on taxation issues
  • Advising on compliance with Health and Safety in Employment regulations
  • Assisting with the supply of goods contracts
  • Contractual dispute issues.

When it comes to business, the more prepared you are the better the business will
be.
