The scale and degree of difficulty of transactions we have completed is comparable to those undertaken by full service city law firms.

A sample of our larger transactions and/or clients includes:

  • Melbourne agent for in-house counsel at a number of ASX listed companies
  • The sale of client engineering business for $8.2m to an ASX listed buyer
  • The sale of client financial planning business for $5.5m to an ASX listed buyer
  • Private equity capital raising of $5.0m
  • Finalising royalty agreements with an offshore IP owner for exploitation of major IP
  • Responsible for the Victorian leasing arrangements for a petroleum refiner and retailer

Referees can be provided on request.

While we are Melbourne based, we have undertaken transactions in all Australian states, New Zealand, Europe, Japan, Canada, USA, India and South East Asia. Where on-the-ground presence is required we have trusted agents in most jurisdictions.

While we facilitate major transactions, the bulk of our work is on-going commercial work from long standing small business and private clients, that also includes domestic conveyancing, wills and powers of attorney.
