We are passionate about assisting you to turn your big idea into a reality. We are committed to simplifying unnecessarily complex law and providing affordable legal advice in all areas of commercial and corporate law, intellectual property, employment, tax and other issues that affect emerging businesses in the startup space.

We understand that as a startup, you are focused on growing your business idea, developing your products and scraping together enough funding to take your business to the next level. We take the pressure and cost out of engaging a startup lawyer.

We get to know your business, your goals and your plans for the future. We will work with you to develop appropriate strategies to scale your business, enable positive disruption of the market and to combat anti-competitive behaviour that you may encounter.

As a start-up, making the right legal decisions from the beginning, can be the most valuable investment decision you make. Whether it is your legal structure, protecting current operations, IP protection, supporting future growth, ensuring your business is scalable and conducive to investment, the correct legal framework is paramount.

We also have specialist startup lawyers who understand high-growth tech businesses. Whether it is technology licensing arrangements, technology outsourcing and offshoring deals, corporate transactions in the technology, telecommunications and new media or data protection sectors we have you covered.


Commercial advice

From incorporation, business structuring, shareholder agreements, buy sell agreements, registration and compliance through to contract negotiations, we have the depth and breadth of the law covered. We can also advise you on tax and superannuation, insurance or leasing arrangements for premises.

Capital and Investments

We also assist our startup clients with raising capital, drafting funding agreements and terms sheets. However, our Startup advice extends far beyond the law, our wide network of clients and startup guns includes accountants, serial enters, investors, financial planners, strategic business advisors, private equity advisors and research and development (R&D) grant consultants.
