Commercial & Business Law

Very often entrepreneurs and even experienced business people drift from one business arrangement to another with no issues arising for many years.

Then all of a sudden they are faced with a crisis, dispute or opportunity to change direction. Regardless of goodwill or best intention, a legal structure will always determine the protection one enjoys, or the direction you may take in any business decision.

So whether you are a seasoned veteran in business, or a young entrepreneur starting out on a new venture, you should consult with an unbiased legal expert who will provide sound and objective advice, and establish the legal building blocks for a secure future.

The changes to the Companies Act has resulted in a new interpretation of legal requirements for business structures and ownership models that determine the way in which your business should be structured. Once this is established you should enjoy a trusted and reliable relationship with a legal expert to advise and manage any situation that could arise, short term or in the future. A well-structured legal foundation will ensure stability and consistency in your business practice and the action you take under any circumstance.
