Amidst the excitement of setting up a new business, some vital legal issues can be overlooked. It is highly beneficial to seek contract and business structure advice during the initial proceedings of a business start up. The business attorneys at Kennedy Spanner can guide you through the necessary steps to ensure your business is successfully set up from the outset.
There are several business structures available to new business owners including partnership, joint venture, company, trust or franchise. Each structure has advantages and disadvantages; making it important to explore your options and determine which structure will best cater for your needs.
We can also assist with the restructuring of your existing business. Your business is not bound to one structure for the entirety of its life. If your business encounters change or growth you can reassess your current structure and make necessary changes.
The principles relevant to business contracts are affected by legislation and it is advisable to ask a lawyer for assistance when writing, reviewing or signing contracts. Contract laws vary between professions and industries, making it important to identify the laws relevant to your business. Our team can assist with this and ensure every detail is included in the contract.
Franchisees must comply with the Franchising Code of Conduct and enter into a standard franchise agreement. It is important to educate yourself on the details of the agreement before you sign any franchise documents. Kennedy Spanner can assist you with understanding and familiarising yourself with these details.
Kennedy Spanner would be happy to review any business contract, lease or franchise agreement that you may have received, prior to you signing it. We will ensure that the terms and conditions contained in the agreement are in your best interests for both short term and long term.
Other areas of expertise we can assist with include reviewing agreements, workplace disputes and unfair dismissal claims.
