When you have been a small business lawyer for decades, when you have run your own small business for decades, when you have helped resolve literally hundreds of small business disputes and when you have helped hundreds of small businesses to avoid disputes in the first instance you get to know lots of small business stuff.
So, to help our many, many small business clients we locked senior lawyer and accredited business law specialist Tony Burke in an office and withheld food and water until he agreed to share with all of us some of his small business knowledge.
He did go on a bit but we have kept the best bits and rendered them as our A to Z of Small Business which you can find here on our website and which is free for all to use.
Oh, and yes, we have let him out. So Tony Burke is now back working with our small business clients. Just recently he helped settle a messy property development dispute through the mediation service of the Victorian Small Business Commissioner (he is a big fan), he is preparing for a ground breaking appeal to the Court of Appeal about retail lease law, by Court order he is de facto controller of a property investment business worth over $100M and he also helps chair several challenging small business boards.
