Choosing the correct business structure – or combination of structures – is fundamental to business success. Important cost, tax and asset protection consequences flow from this critical decision.

Our team has expertise in business structuring and registrations for public, private and not-for-profit organisations, along with a depth of experience in all types of commercial contracts and negotiations.


We have extensive experience advising on the four common business structures that are used by SMEs in Australia: sole traders, partnerships, companies and trusts. We also assist with re-structuring existing businesses.

We work with a range of business clients, from publicly listed companies and large private companies to emerging companies and start-ups, high net worth individuals and international companies expanding to the Australian market.

Our clients come from a wide variety of industry sectors, including:

  • Financial and corporate advisory services
  • Technology and fintech, including start-ups and emerging companies
  • Retail and e-commerce
  • Mining, energy and resources
  • Logistics and distribution
  • Medical, medical technology and diagnostics
  • Property. 


Providing the best advice on business structuring or re-structuring requires an understanding of options available, and their practical and legal implications. It also requires an intricate understanding of the business in question and business objectives. Our lawyers combine high-level legal know-how with a genuine enthusiasm and ability for understanding each client’s business – to deliver standout service and results.
