The Finlaysons’ Corporate team understands the challenges companies face in balancing the obligations of directors and the rights and expectations of shareholders against the realities of running a business in a complex commercial and regulatory environment.
Our Corporate team are market leaders operating across Australia for local, interstate and international clients and we’ve developed many long-term working relationships based on mutual respect and the common goal of meeting clients’ commercial objectives.
We advise on a wide range of company law and corporate finance issues for private and public companies and not-for-profit entities, working closely with client boards, in-house lawyers and managers. We also advise directors and other officers on governance issues and directors’ duties and liabilities.
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, and on the conduct of AGM and special meetings.
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.
