Your commercial law questions answered

A broad category of the law covering legal needs at all points in the business cycle from the start-up phase, operating business-as-usual, to selling or exiting a business.

This can include the initial legal documents and agreements required to establish a new business. Clearscope Legal can help with shareholders agreements, property leases, employment agreements, general terms and conditions, privacy policies and website terms and conditions.

After taking the initial steps and putting the required agreements and documents in place, other legal steps will be required. Clearscope Legal are experts when it comes to operating your business as usual. Like negotiating agreements with your suppliers, or sending a legal letter if your rights are being breached. You may need to renew your lease, bring on a new business partner, or get advice on laws affecting your business.

Maybe the time has come to sell your share in a business, and you need a sale agreement prepared. You may be selling or buying the whole business, and need help with the due diligence process or the business sale agreement. Perhaps things are not going so well, and you need help with winding up your business and closing your operations. You can speak to Clearscope Legal about any issue you might have at the end of cycle phase of your business.

We recently engaged Clearscope to undertake a review of our standard terms and conditions of sale. With thousands of customers this is important to our business and we found Raphael to be very responsive and knowledgeable. He also recently kept us up to date with emerging developments in this space which was most appreciated.
