Business Legal Services

The team at Maclarens has extensive experience in business & commercial matters, and actively supports the local business community. Regardless of the size of your business, we can provide reliable, accurate and timely advice when you need it.

We understand, for example, that small business owners and operators have both resource and budget constraints. That’s why our lawyers are freely accessible, during and after office hours, and are committed to minimising the costs involved with legal advice and representation – without compromising quality and accuracy.

Eachbusiness lawyer works with a client to truly understand their business and its environment. They are able to source and supply relevant information and keep clients aware of important legal developments as part of our overall service, and at no extra cost. We also measure our rate in terms of value to clients, rather than minutes and seconds, so you can feel free to contact us whenever you have a question or need advice.

Our Business Legal Services include:


If you are buying a business, or selling a business, you need experts who understand the legal issues and can achieve the best financial outcome for you. From preparing the contract to negotiating the purchase or sale, the team at Maclarens can make sure you get it right.


Commercial tenants and landlords need a lawyer who understand the Retail Leasing Act and can successfully negotiate favourable terms and conditions for their client. At Maclarens we can provide expert advice and representation if a dispute occurs.


The team at Maclarens can advise small-medium sized businesses on a range of commercial issues, ranging from structuring a business, to trusts, employment contracts, intellectual property, copyright and legislative compliance.


Generally speaking, litigation is a last resort; however, if your business requires an experienced litigator to represent your interests then we can help. We have considerable experience in a range of areas including breach of contract, debt recovery, commercial documentation and Land & Environment Court disputes.


If you operate a valuable business then you are likely to be in possession of valuable intellectual property such as a trade mark, copyright, design right or trade secrets which should be protected to its maximum extent. We have training and experience in the protection and licensing of intellectual property rights.


At Maclarens, we provide advice and representation to local government bodies, property developers, utilities companies and various other clients on a range of issues such as Land & Environment Court Appeals, Development and Building Applications, easements, injunctions and compliance issues.
