Corporate and Commercial Advice

At Bellanhouse we are regularly requested to 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 effective solutions means our clients are able to make critical decisions with confidence.

The commercially astute advice we give clients (private and public) ranges from assistance at an infancy/start up stage right through to a private trade sale or listing stage.

Matters we advise on require our team to work 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 ad hoc liaison with the ASX and ASIC.

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

Support we provide our clients with 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)
  • Relate party transactions
  • Contractual queries
