Business Sale + Purchase

Have you been thinking of buying or selling a business?

Before entering into this type of complex transaction, it is important to be aware of the many legal factors that go hand in hand with buying or selling a business.

  • What exactly are you selling? For example: a website, client list, or equipment?
  • Is there a lease of premises requiring negotiations with the landlord?
  • Do you offer client loyalty rewards?
  • Have clients booked your services well in advance?
  • Do you need a confidentiality agreement?

Our dedicated legal team members have gained much experience working for various companies, ranging from multi-national corporations to sole traders, so you know your matter will be in the most capable of hands.

Partnership + Shareholder Agreements

In order to build a good relationship with your partners and shareholders, they need to know where they stand and what is required of them.

Shareholder agreements can cover a number of circumstances within this relationship, necessary to protect you in all possible scenarios when entering into a joint venture.

  • Are you prepared for potential disputes? What are your rights?
  • What happens when a partner wants out?
  • Do your agreements protect your confidential information?

At CMM Quay Legal Group we give our clients the security of knowing their business can operate smoothly, catching disputes before they arise and reducing the stress that comes with running a business successfully.

We recognise that no two businesses are the same, so we tailor all our advice, drafting and reviewing of shareholder agreements specifically to suit the unique needs of each of our clients.

Trademarks

How do people recognise your business and brand?

Did you know you can trademark words, colours, sounds and even smells?

Customers might recognise your brand by its packaging, a delectable smell or by a carefully designed logo. If they’ve interacted with your business before, it is very likely that they will choose your familiar product again, over the products of your competitors.

Set yourself apart from other businesses in the market by trademarking the important aspects of what makes your business unique.

Have you considered making money licencing your trademarks? We can help you create mutually beneficial relationships between you and other businesses, services and goods.

Let CMM Quay Legal Group help you attain exclusive legal right to use, license or sell your brand’s products and services within Australia and internationally. We will take care of your trademark transfers, licences and disputes.
