Business Law

LMN lawyers offer sound legal advice not only on the purchase or sale of a business but also on setting up the right business structure for your enterprise. It’s important that each party to a sale or purchase of business transaction be independently advised by a lawyer and an accountant before entering into any contracts or agreements. We are experienced in both New South Wales and Queensland Law which have very different legal processes when it comes to transferring businesses. We can help with:

  • business structures including partnerships, companies and trusts
  • drafting and reviewing contracts
  • lease terms including options, rent and expenses
  • Put and Call options
  • goodwill and valuation of business assets
  • tax considerations

  • transfers of liquor licences, poker machine entitlements and equipment licences
  • franchises and franchising agreements
  • arranging due diligence searches and inspections
