Corporate

Our clients know us as trusted advisors. We’ve developed many long-term working relationships based on mutual respect and the common goal of meeting clients’ commercial objectives.

Our Corporate team are market leaders operating across Australia for local, interstate and international clients.

We advise on a wide range of company law and corporate finance issues for private and public companies at state, national and international levels. We’re experienced in all aspects of mergers and acquisitions, conducting compliance reviews and acting for companies during divestment procedures. We advise clients on the Corporations Act and ASX Listing Rules and restructures, including share transactions, asset transfers, taxation and stamp duty ramifications.

We’ve acted for clients in numerous major acquisitions, including Brown Brothers’ acquisition of Tamar Ridge Estates. In 2012, we advised ASX-listed IMX Resources Limited on its merger with the Canadian-listed company, Continental Nickel Limited. We also recently advised the South Australian Cricket Association Inc. on amendments to its constitution and other aspects related to the redevelopment of the Adelaide Oval.

We have built strong links with industry through our government and private sector networks and contribute positively to the corporate sector through representation on industry bodies.
