Whatever it is that you need done,
we can help

Below are some of the aspects of law that we're particularly good at, and if we aren't experts in the field of law that you need assistance with, we can help you find someone who is.


Dealing with property is something that we'll all be involved in at some time in our lives.

Generally, we get into business to make money and often the old adage that "time is money" rings true.

By setting up your commercial venture properly and fully from the outset, you can save yourself a lot of time and money in the long run. It's like an insurance policy, get all of your ducks in a row from the beginning and then you can spend time on the thing that makes you money - your business - rather than the thing that costs you money - disputes.

We specialise in:

  • Business Conveyancing
  • Business Finance
  • Leases
  • Setting up New Companies

Estate Planning & Administration

One of the best things you can do for your family, is make sure that you've set out your wishes in case anything happens to you.

Whether that means writing a will to deal with your assets after you pass away, creating powers of attorney to give another person the power to act on your behalf while you're still alive, or setting up a trust to protect your assets and ensure that they do go to the people you intend them to. We can walk you through this process and make sure the necessary documents are in place, taking the stress off your family at what will likely be a difficult time for them.

We can also guide you through the estate administration process when a loved one has passed away.

We specialise in:

  • Wills
  • Power of Attorney
  • Trusts
  • Gifting
  • Estate Administration
  • Contesting Wills


It's not just Hollywood couples who benefit from pre-nuptial agreements.

If you're entering into a new relationship, and you're each bringing with you your separate assets, or if each of you have your own children, you might consider signing an agreement which clearly states who those assets will belong to if you later break up, or if one of you passes away.

And on the other side of the coin, if your relationship breaks up and you need to divide your assets, we can tell you exactly what you're entitled to and make sure the division of your assets is recorded in a binding agreement.

We specialise in:

  • Pre-Nuptial Agreements
  • Relationship Property Agreements


For those of us unlucky enough to be caught in a dispute, practical legal advice can help enormously.

Disputes aren't always like other legal matters where you can get a good idea of what the outcome will be right from the start. The outcome largely depends on the issue in dispute and the other person's response - both of which can change during the resolution process.

We can talk through the dispute with you and figure out which method of dealing with it would be best for you, and then we can fight your corner.

We specialise in:

  • Property Disputes
  • Commercial Disputes
  • Contract Disputes
  • Partnership Disputes
  • Shareholder Disputes
  • Employment Disputes
  • Trust Disputes
  • Estate Claims
  • Debt Recovery
  • Relationship Property Division
