As head of our renowned Wine Practice, Will and his dedicated team have helped make us Australia’s leading firm in wine law. Will helps clients with mergers and acquisitions, business structuring, business succession, buying and selling of wine brands and vineyards and establishing foreign distribution agreements (including in China). He also acts in a range of disputes, helps wineries formulate grape procurement and wine distribution strategies as well as developing supply, processing, bottling and distribution contracts.
Will is not only a wine lawyer, but a vigneron himself, having established Will Taylor Wines in 1997 with his wife, Suzanne. When clients come to Will, he doesn’t just pull a generic template off the shelf for their matter. His deep understanding of the wine industry means he and his team can tailor a solution for each and every client. Clients get specific and relevant advice they can trust because it is underpinned by years of experience working in the wine industry.Send a Message
Whether it’s the biggest players in the industry or a small family business, Will and his team provide a full legal service for clients in all sectors of the wine industry, including industry bodies, research organisations and regional associations.
Will understands that, to meet his clients’ commercial objectives, he needs to know their business inside and out. This often means providing strategic advice to the wine industry ‘on their own patch’ at events like the annual Finlaysons’ Wine Roadshow.
