Business & Commercial Law
Leigh Adams Lawyers helps business and commercial clients with the sale and purchase of businesses, shareholder agreements, loan and lease agreements, setting up business structures, tax effective business succession agreements, and also with trusts, franchising, and finance and asset securities. Leigh Adams also helps his personal clients with wills & estate planning. Leigh Adams also prepares website terms and conditions. We get a buzz when we create a great document that fully protects you!
Many lawyers prepare commercial documents without understanding the CGT impact of what they are creating. Or they are good at one of the issues raised but not the others. The client is oblivious to their exposure until the wheels fall off down the track – often years into the future.
Our business succession documents are the subject of a successful ATO product ruling. We know of only one other law firm that has created such documents with such approval – and they are interstate. Anyway, the ATO product ruling means that when we explain how the documents operate and why they protect all the business partners from unwanted capital gains tax and unwanted tax on insurances proceeds (in the event of death, disability or trauma), we are not just guessing - we have the backing of the Australian Taxation Office.
Another example of our skill is personal property securities, also known as finance and asset securities. Leigh is frequently invited to speak to other lawyers, accountants and financial planners on this new and potentially devastating law. If you are buying or selling or leasing anything (other than land) and possession of the goods has passed to your customer before you get paid, then watch out! We understand how to protect your interests by filing a financing statement as well as by using other methods of ‘perfecting’ your security interests.
The firm also drives results when assisting with business disputes, debt recovery, bankruptcy issues (for the creditor or debtor), shareholder disputes and commercial litigation. The firm frequently acts in company wind-ups and bankruptcy applications. We have assisted companies and individuals with their corporate and personal insolvency exposures for many years. We know what is worth pursuing (or defending) and when to call it a day. As a member of the pre-eminent ARITA (Australian Restructuring Insolvency and Turnaround Association), we get you there.
