Companies and associations have a lot to think about when it comes to the company law side of business. Aside from designing the legal structures of the business and making sure you’ve got adequate asset protection in place, you need to consider other legal matters such as tax, regulations and risk.

At Antunes Lawyers in Sydney, we provide a full range of company law services for companies and associations. We can incorporate companies and provide shareholders agreements or  joint venture agreements – to create a business vehicle best suited to meet all commercial challenges. If it becomes necessary we can re-design the legal structures of the business or other entity to meet new circumstances and ensure asset protection. We can also arrange the purchase and sale of shares in private companies separately or in conjunction with a sale of a business.

Our lawyers are experienced in dealing with corporate governance and cases where shareholders or members of a joint venture are being taken advantage of by others. We can also advise on meeting procedures including for associations under the Incorporated Associations Act.

Shelf companies are often not suitable for the circumstances of the owners, as they develop. They contain impractical and sometimes uncommercial terms that owners are not aware of until they are in dispute. At this stage, it’s too late to amend the legal structures of the business to include asset protection, which can cause significant grief to the owners and their families and often lead to loss of the business. Company constitutions should be tailored to the circumstances of the business owners and the business itself, now and into the future. For this reason, Antunes Lawyers incorporates companies and drafts company constitutions suitable for the particular shareholders and the business.Incorporation of Companies and Associations
