How A Commercial Lawyer Can Help You In Business


When it comes to running a business, you may not completely understand all the legalities of common business activities such as contracts, leases or taxes. 

That’s where a commercial lawyer can assist you. If you’ve ever wondered why you might need a commercial lawyer in your business endeavours, they can be there to assist companies and small businesses with their legal needs.

Or you could be in the situation where you already have a business, but need some sound legal advice or have an impending litigation case. 

These common everyday situations can easily and efficiently be managed by a commercial lawyer, such as TY Lawyers in Chatswood. 

There is a common misconception that hiring a commercial lawyer is expensive, however not hiring one could leave you in a financial predicament that you may not know how to successfully deal with. So it’s always good thing to perceive the assistance of a commercial lawyer as a benefit or an advantage to your business, not a liability. 

Looking To Set Up or Start A Small Business 

It can be a little overwhelming thinking about all the things that need to be done in order to get your business off the ground, but when you’ve got expert advice from a small business commercial lawyer, you won’t tread a foot wrong.

  • Conveyancing

Small Business Legal Advice and Protection

Assisting your small business further by advising on things such as Intellectual Property, Trademarks, business succession and asset protection are very important as your business starts to grow and mature. 

Commercial Disputes or Litigation Concerns 

Legal disputes take time, finances and energy which can take you away from focusing on your primary business objectives. Not to mention, most everyday business owners don’t know the ins and outs of commercial law when it comes to litigation. Teaming up with a commercial lawyer should a situation arise, will put you in the best position for a positive outcome in relation to any commercial dispute or litigation case. 

It’s important to note that a commercial lawyer has ‘hands on’ experience within the business and commerce world, whereby a regular lawyer may have simply studied commercial law and won’t be as experienced in real life business scenarios.
