Corporate And Commercial Advice

At Bellanhouse we regularly advise clients on general corporate and commercial legal issues.

Our deep understanding of our clients’ objectives and the complexities and challenges they face, coupled with our significant experience in providing commercially focused and effective solutions means our clients are able to make critical decisions with confidence.

We provide private and public companies commercially astute and strategic legal advice ranging from assistance at an infancy/start up stage right through to a private trade sale or listing.

Our team works closely with company board members and management teams on a range of issues including corporate governance matters, structuring and restructuring, compliance, reporting and regulatory requirements, and liaison with the ASX and ASIC.

A number of our partners sit on company boards as non-executive directors, for private and public companies including an ASX 300 company, which allows them to draw on their experience and utilise their knowledge to the benefit of our clients.

We assist clients on contractual matters such as management and service contracts, as well as business and share sales and general corporate and commercial legal queries.

Our support includes:

  • Corporate governance
  • Market disclosure advice
  • Board composition and structure
  • Directors’ statutory and fiduciary duties and liabilities
  • Remuneration and incentive schemes
  • Shareholder rights and protections (including s249D matters)
