Commercial Law

With more than three decades of experience behind our services, our commercial law team can provide the best legal solutions for your business.

Commercial & Business Law

Navigating the legal requirements for Australian businesses can often be a complex task, but FP Lawyers provides the support your business needs. We help clients with everything from company registration and business taxation to the finer details of loans, leases, the purchase and sale of businesses, business advisory and the formation of entities such as trusts.


Commercial leases are often a major expense and dealing with landlords or tenants should be handled carefully to avoid unnecessary disputes and issues.

The team at FP Lawyers are experts in business and commercial law and can provide advice regarding leases, their terms, enforcement of conditions and helping clients review contracts prior to signing. Avoid getting trapped in an unfavourable lease or running afoul of your tenants by seeking counsel before making changes or signing contracts.

Business Loan Advice

Expanding businesses often seek the help of lenders and banks to support their growth with a loan or mortgage. But due to the complex nature of Australian business law, applying for a loan can be a more involved process than applying for a personal one, so it’s important to seek professional advice. We can help your business avoid the pitfalls of the industry and ensure the contracts you sign are fair and reasonable.

Discretionary Trust

A Discretionary Trust is a legal entity which is run by a Trustee and owns property for the benefit of a third party known as the Beneficiary. In this arrangement the discretionary trust is the legal owner of the property, but the beneficiaries receive income generated by the assets.

In most cases discretionary trusts are used to provide a level of protection and risk management for individuals and businesses. Assets controlled by a trustee won’t be subject to the personal risks of the beneficiaries.

Establishing a trust is one of the best ways you can protect your assets and benefit from tax breaks. However, the way your discretionary trust is structured will depend on your tax obligations, future plans and ongoing requirements, so it is important to seek expert help before creating any legal entities.

Company Constitutions & Trust Deeds

Many of us protect our businesses and assets using specialised company structures and trusts, all of which should be reviewed as part of the estate planning process.

Our team can review your assets, businesses, trusts and any other structures to ensure their constitutions will not contradict the wishes laid out in your Will. We go the extra mile to ensure you receive comprehensive financial and estate planning that minimises the risk of disputes or misunderstandings in the future.
