Company Law

We advise companies, directors and shareholders.

For example, we will advise our clients about:

  • Business structuring (company vs. trust vs. other legal structure)
  • Powers, rights and responsibilities of a company, director or shareholder under the company constitution, trust deed and shareholder agreement
  • Powers of a company, director or and shareholder under the Corporations Act and other legislation
  • Issuing shares and raising equity or debt capital
  • Complying with internal administration requirements for a company
  • External administration options for a company in the event of insolvency (including, for example, entering voluntary administration and a deed of company arrangement with creditors)
  • rights against the Australian Securities and Investments Commissions
  • rights against the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission
  • rights against the Australian Taxation Office (including, for example, dealing with director penalty notices).
