Property Law issues are nearly always an integral part of small business and our experience in this area of the law will be of benefit to you.

Incorporation of companies, establishing partnerships and joint ventures, discretionary and unit trusts are all undertaken after carefully considering your objectives and aims in establishing these commercial relationships.

These issues must be considered in the context of agreements between shareholders, partners, unit trust owners relating to the management of a business and the pre-emptive rights relating to buy/sell options between parties in their relationships.
