Adelaide Business & Commercial Lawyers Best Advice
The best advice we can give to anyone contemplating a business transaction is don’t be one of those clients that gets us to “check things over” after the deal has been negotiated, documented and signed. The right time to get advice is before negotiations commence and then regularly throughout the transaction.
In our experience astute business people surround themselves with good advisers and they take advice regularly and from a very early stage in commercial transactions.
In addition to drafting and advising on documentation, we can give you the benefit of our significant business and commercial transaction experience and assist with the design and implementation of an appropriate due diligence exercise.
A good commercial lawyer is someone that you can use to “talk over” the deal and together come up with the best structure whilst minimising costs, stamp duty, capital gains tax and other imposts up front and those that may be payable down the track.
