  • Business Law

    Before you sign a contract to buy or sell a business it is essential that you obtain legal advice. There are too may pitfalls to list here. Because our lawyers know what can happen when things go wrong, we know how to set you on the right path at the outset.

    We provide timely, salient advice on recommending and establishing suitable structures for our clients to achieve their commercial objectives. Our lawyers have a passion for drafting shareholder or partnership agreements, governance documents, employee or contractor agreements and a wide range of other commercial agreements which may be necessary.

    Technology is changing the way we do business. It will be rare, that you do not as part of your business operation, present a website. You may utilise online selling as part of your business. It may be tempting to copy and paste ‘disclaimers’, ‘privacy notices’ or the ‘terms and conditions’ of use of your website from other websites, however unless you enjoy defending claims against you and paying legal fees you must avoid the temptation. These are legal documents which should be tailored exclusively to suit your own business. Website terms are the basis of the agreement between you, the website operator and the website user.

    Let our lawyers help you with assessment of your business model and limiting your liability.

    If you are thinking about establishing a self-managed super fund please call us and we can advise of the steps. If you are considering buying property in your self-managed super fund at Mumfords we can provide all the necessary documentation.

    Once you have established a company, trust or self-managed super fund it is important to remember the ongoing maintenance and review of such structures.

  • Property Law & Conveyancing

    If you are looking to sell or buy real estate, call us first before you sign any contract. Contracts and conveyancing procedures differ from state to state.

    We are happy to provide you with a ‘no obligation’ estimate of costs for conveyancing and you will be surprised at our competitive prices!

    We also accept instructions to act as town agents for settlements on behalf of other legal firms on a frequent and regular basis.

    Leases are particularly onerous documents and can have far reaching financial implications. It is false economy to try and “do it yourself”. Our lawyers are skilful negotiators and drafts people. We constantly review the law and cases as it pertains to commercial and retail shop leases.

    With longstanding experience in all aspects of property law including ‘off the plan contracts’, strata-titling, subdivisions and retirement interests our lawyers will always provide the right advice.

  • Administrative Law

    Our governments’ laws and regulations give regulatory authorities the power to make decisions that affect your rights. If you disagree with a decision by a regulatory authority and wish to challenge it we can provide you with the right advice. It is our preference to reach timely negotiated settlements.

    If you are under investigation or if a complaint is made against you for breach of a law or regulation your livelihood may be at stake. You need quality legal representation.

    If your application for registration with your regulatory authority (such as AHPRA) is rejected Mumfords can represent your interests and achieve outstanding results.
