Our business lawyers in Melbourne can assist you in all corporate law matters including:
Does consumer law apply to businesses?
Yes, consumer laws are there to protect the community as well as to promote fair trading and competition.
What is a company in business law?
Under the Corporations Act 2001, a company is a legal entity that performs all the functions of a body corporate, can sue and be sued, has perpetual succession, and can acquire, hold, and sell property.
What is partnership in business law?
A partnership is a group of people who share the control, profit, and losses of a business.
Is business insurance required by law?
There are forms of insurance that are compulsory for Australian businesses, such as workers’ compensation insurance, public liability insurance, amongst a few. Talk to us! We have worked with many insurance brokers who will be able to assist you in this regard.
What happens if a business breaks the law?
There would definitely be consequences. For example, since a company cannot be incarcerated like individuals, it could be charged with hefty fines. On the other hand, the directors could be charged criminally (as they are the minds of the company).
We only do what we do best. We don’t dabble in areas that we don’t practice in every day.
We are results-driven. People say you should focus on the journey but we disagree. We focus on the results we get for our clients.
