Contracts and Agreements

Navigating contracts in a straightforward manner so that drafting and review protects your interests and understanding is de-mystified for you.

We work closely with you and the other parties involved to minimise current and future risk and to maximise success for you. We have the experience, skill and expertise on the technical side of contracts to ensure you are properly protected and advised, whilst understanding (and preserving) the relationships and reputations involved.

Terms and conditions of contracts and agreements can be tricky.

It is critical that you obtain appropriately qualified legal advice on such terms to ensure they are accurate, well understood and the best they can be for you.

Our lawyers advise in plain language so that you can comprehensively evaluate the pros and cons of the proposed agreement, the proposed relationship and consider alternatives and improvements.

Our team is highly experienced in drafting all kinds of contracts so that your interests are protected but your liability, costs and time are limited. Our contracts are standard where they need to be and tailored where they need to be. We ensure that your contract captures and communicates between the parties what is intended.

We are highly skilled and trained in negotiating contracts and contract terms on your behalf, to ensure the best result is achieved for you. We protect your interests, reach sound and beneficial commercial terms and preserve relationships and reputation between the parties, where required.

Our property team has extensive experience acting for clients of all sizes, from individuals to companies to superannuation funds, trusts, property developers and more.
