Legal services for business.

Uncomplicated, relevant, expert advice.

We add value.

For too long legal and business advisors have been reactive and failed to demonstrate value to clients. Our mission is to empower your business and add value in every engagement.

We are the experts in Retail, Business Law and Mergers and Acquisitions – and we’re business people, too.

Victor GuggerDirector Valleyarm

In my dealings with Nick I have found him to be professional outcome focused and straight forward to deal with. One of the better things I enjoyed about working with him is his ability to look down the line and forecast where he can assist our company's growth into the future.

Ryan SpaccaventoDirector Coffee on Cue

Nick is one of those rare finds in business. I've been at this game for a long time and its not that often that you come across someone with the depth of knowledge and experience that he has in the areas of Corporate and Commercial Law especially in the small business space that I operate in. Its a pleasure working alongside a client focused Lawyer that gets this space so well. Nick is able to make the complex simple and the simple compelling.

Si Harris Business Adviser

Nick alleviated all our concerns for working in a partnership and helped us develop a strong framework for us to feel confident and secure about our venture. Dealing with Nick was seamless and easy which is the opposite of any other firm I’ve ever worked with before.
