Innovation, Technology, Start-ups and Scale-Ups

We’ve developed a streamlined and affordable legal service for the Australian innovation and tech community, for startups, scaleups and any business looking to develop and grow through technology and innovation.

Maybe you’re forging a new path in a new or emerging market. Or maybe you’ve got great new tech to take on an industry behemoth. We get all that. We also get that your time is precious, that money may be tight and that your legal requirements are different to our corporate and other clients. That’s why we’ve developed our custom commercial legal services for Australian startups.

Whether it’s regulatory advice about your unique operating environment, help setting up your company, getting you a great deal with investors, moving you to the USA, hiring a heavyweight employee or negotiating an exit, we have the experience to help you and your startup succeed at all stages in your company’s lifecycle
