We know Commercial law

If you’re wondering whether or not we offer services in different areas other than financial services law and regulatory training; we do!  Most of our financial services lawyers have a commercial law background, and are well equipped to help in commercial matters.

We provide commercial law and legal services to medium to large sized commercial businesses, including international manufacturers and franchisors.

Our commercial team is headed by Managing Partner, Grant Holley, and Special Counsel, Tim Dixon.

Our commercial team can help you with:

  • Employment law for employers, including: agreements, disputes and restructures
  • Contracts – ranging from simple service-level agreements, through to international franchise agreements
  • Dispute resolutions such as mediation, arbitration and court proceedings
  • Mergers & Acquisitions

What about Smart Contracts?

Smart Contracts are self-executing computer programmes.  When it comes to building decentralised finance (DeFi) applications, they act as bricks in a larger construction project that work together to achieve some form of service.  However, often, they include in the code normal terms and conditions that govern behaviour between parties that interact with the relevant protocols.  If you want to deal with a commercial legal firm that understands blockchain technology and the nuance of smart contracts, you’ve come to the right place.  We can help.

Are your practices anti-competitive?

In addition to any specialist laws that apply to your business (eg: financial services), you must ensure you comply with other laws, such as anti-competitive behaviour.
