If your business requires a commercial lawyer in Brisbane, look no further than ADVIILAW. No matter how complex or intensive your needs are, we can offer practical and effective legal solutions.

Is an ADVIILAW commercial lawyer the same as a corporate lawyer?

Not exactly. Although commercial law and corporate law do overlap, commercial law tends to be more concerned with transactions and commercial trading. This may cover anything from business transactions between individuals through to complex acquisitions.

By contrast, corporate law is more focused on governance and regulation surrounding businesses. These are factors that can come into play as part of commercial litigation — particularly around situations such as large-scale mergers and acquisitions — but on a day to day basis, they tend to be fairly separate entities.

What are the types of commercial law ADVIILAW practices?

At ADVIILAW, we can handle just about any type of commercial law including commercial litigation. Whether you’re looking at starting a business with a partner, starting a franchise, looking to be bought out, or any other situation, our team can point you in the right direction. Why not book a consultation today? We can discuss your legal options in more detail.

Our commercial lawyers are well equipped to deal with any legal issues your business may encounter. We can also help you seek compensation if you believe your business was subjected to irresponsible lending.
