Expertise

Commercial specialisation

We don't try to be all things to all people. We are commercial lawyers with a reputation for providing practical, commercially driven advice – every time. 

Our client base includes many small and mid-tier businesses, a wide range of stakeholders in the agribusiness and construction sectors, State Government departments and agencies, not-for-profit organisations and other professionals.

Choosing to specialise in a small number of fields means that we are fully devoted to them; that we will protect our clients' businesses as if they were our own. Our way of producing value is to develop a deep understanding of our clients' businesses and tailor legal advice to meet specific commercial objectives, to identify growth opportunities, to achieve savings and efficiencies, and to turn challenge into commercial advantage.

With this in mind, our approach to commercial legal work is based on four simple principles:

  • understanding our clients' sectors, businesses and commercial objectives.

  • communicating in a language that is open, honest and direct.

  • having confidence in the knowledge and ability of our people to do our clients' work in a timely and efficient manner.

  • pricing our services based on the value of the work we do.

It is this attitude that sets us apart.
