BUSINESS TRANSACTIONS, DEVELOPMENT, PLANNING AND SALE
No matter what stage you are at in your business life cycle, keeping up to date with your commercial legal requirements can be a time consuming process. Often business owners don’t have the time to seek legal advice over every business transaction they are involved in. At Lynn & Brown we help businesses of all sizes ensure that their everyday business transactions such as terms of trade with customers, are updated regularly to ensure they remain compliant with legislation. We have extensive experience in advising on and assisting clients with PPSR (Personal Property Security Registry) issues.

We regularly act for both landlords and tenants in transactions ranging from large commercial developments to your local corner store. This range of experience puts our clients in an enviable position when negotiating.
We have significant experience in acting for equipment hire businesses. Having acted for multinational companies hiring industrial equipment to many different sectors of the Australian economy. We have the experience and expertise to assist you.
ARE YOU ABOUT TO SIGN A CONTRACT?
Any time you enter into a written transaction or agreement with another person or business, you enter into a contract and in most instances it is legally binding. Before you sign anything you should always get trusted legal advice so you can clearly understand your rights and obligations.
For instance, if you are about to enter into a retail shop lease, you should be aware that there is legislation in place in Western Australia called the Commercial Tenancy (Retail Shops) Agreements Act 1985. This Act provides tenants with an easy to understand tenant’s guide that contains all the essential terms for anyone considering entering into a retail shop lease.
How long is it since you had your terms of trade/sale reviewed? Are your terms compliant with the Personal Property Security Act? Have our lawyers review or create them now to ensure you are protected in your dealings.
Whether you are setting up a business, leasing, buying premises or involved in a partnership dispute, our lawyers offer a complete range of commercial law advice to suit your needs.
We pride ourselves on developing long term relationships with our clients. This allows us to work with your business to ensure you have the most effective structures and agreements in place. We can anticipate and often prevent problems arising for you. The more we work with you the better.
A notary public has the power to sign and witness documents, administer oaths and perform a number of other important functions. A notary public is different to a Justice of the Peace because they can witness documents to be used in Australia and outside of Australia. All documents are affixed with an official seal. Jacqueline Brown became a Notary Public and a Nationally Accredited Mediator in 2012. She is also a member of the Australian and New Zealand College of Notaries.
