Contract reviews

Our fixed price contract review service allows you to understand the legal risks of a contract before you enter into it, whether it is an employment contract, franchise agreement, licence agreement, lease, construction contract or terms of trade.

Contract preparation

Our lawyers are experienced in drafting simple and complex contracts, including:

  • Confidentiality agreements – sometimes incorporating exclusive dealing periods
  • Website and application terms and conditions
  • Service and supply agreements
  • Business terms and conditions and credit applications
  • Franchise agreements
  • Consultancy agreements
  • Building contracts and subcontracts
  • Joint venture agreements in relation to business arrangements and property dealings
  • Intellectual property licensing agreements
  • Hire contracts
  • IT contracts
  • Distributorship agreements
  • Haulage contracts.

These documents have been prepared for clients in a range of industry sectors including aged care, manufacturing, retail, franchising, health, property development, business services, finance, IT, software production and consultant services.

Contract advice, interpretation and disputes

While engagements and relationships often start out well, issues can arise. Our lawyers can provide pragmatic and prompt advice so that you know where you stand on the issue. We can support you from behind the scenes and help draft your responses so that the other party need not even know that you are receiving legal advice.

If the issue needs to be escalated, we are experienced in alternative dispute resolution forums including informal settlement negotiations, mediations, conciliation and arbitration. The reality is that the vast majority of contract disputes will not result in litigation. The use of alternative dispute resolution enables us to reach suitable outcomes without the considerable expense that may otherwise be incurred.

While we maintain a focus on dispute resolution, our lawyers are also experienced in managing litigation in the NCAT, Local Court, District Court and Supreme Court.
