Areas of Practice
If you're buying or selling a house, unit, land, farm, water or just about anything else, you can rest easy with us. We look out for you every step of the way and carry professional indemnity insurance cover.
DIVORCE & PROPERTY SETTLEMENTS
The breakdown of a relationship is a very stressful experience for all involved. We can inform you of your legal rights, advise you of the appropriate steps, and negotiate a settlement on your behalf. If necessary, we can pursue your interests in court.
BUSINESS & COMMERCE
We can help you buy or sell a business, set up business structures such as a company or trust, transfer shares in privately held companies, amend trusts, enter into or assign a lease or licence, or draw up a contract, partnership or shareholders agreement - just to name a few. Counted amongst our ranks are accomplished business people in their own right, and their legal advice carries insights not readily available elsewhere.
DISPUTES & LITIGATION
If someone owes you or your business money, or you're being sued yourself, we can advise you of your options, negotiate a settlement, or pursue your interests in court. An action could arise from a debt, a breach of contract, a breach of consumer guarantees, or other legal disputes.
WILLS & ESTATES
Even a basic Will can avoid confusion and disputes when there is a death in the family, and a good Will ensures your wishes are met after your death. We also provide Enduring Powers of Attorney and Enduring Guardianships. For more complex circumstances or disputes regarding Wills and estates, our experienced solicitors are the right people to talk to.
We can help you buy or sell a farm, including any water entitlements and water licences. We can arrange intergenerational farm transfers, farm leases, and share farming agreements. Our solicitors are very familiar with life on the land and have lived in the area their entire lives.
