CLEARING THE WAY IN A SINGLE BOUND

Trusted legal superheroes removing the roadblocks in your business

Simple and straightforward legal advice

For too long getting access to helpful advice from a legal expert has proved costly, complicated and firmly filed in the 'too hard basket' for most businesses.

Here at businessDEPOT we're proud to offer uncomplicated access to a qualified legal team who specialise in the things that make businesses tick; from initial setups and structures, through growth, sale, and succession, and all that happens in between.

The team can work directly alongside our accountants and advisors, to ensure all agreements, contracts, and advice are aligned with your business goals and tailored to remove any roadblocks to your success.

Franchise Services

Setting up and running a successful franchise operation is a path that can prove tricky without the right advice. The businessDEPOT Legal team can guide you through the process from setup to ongoing administration, with services including the creation of franchise agreements, disclosure documents, leasing arrangements through to protecting your intellectual property and facilitating the transfer of existing franchised businesses.

Commercial Property Contracts

When assisting with commercial property contracts, our goal is to ensure a smooth process where all considerations are taken into account and your interests are represented within the agreement.

We can assist with contract preparation or review of an existing contract, due diligence to thoroughly review a proposed deal, as well as conveyancing for commercial, industrial and rural properties.

Business Structures

Business structures can take on many forms, so getting the right advice on which structure is best for you, plus the expertise to execute the agreement, is crucial to long-term stability.

We provide advice in the areas of:

  • corporate structures and restructuring
  • joint ventures
  • asset protection
  • franchising and licensing
  • water licensing and rural property
  • property development

Estate and Succession Planning

Protecting your assets well into the future is as important as ensuring today's success, which is why we provide comprehensive planning and advice for estate and succession planning.

Whether it's preparation of a well-considered will, an enduring power of attorney or more complex estate matters, we'll help you make a positive plan for the future.
