Corporations Law

Most businesses in Australia are conducted through companies. Considerable resources, including time and money, are spent in establishing and operating a company. 


The law governing companies and the conduct of directors and shareholders is extensive and complex. 


Directors of companies have obligations under the corporations law which, if breached, can lead to civil liabilities, penalties, criminal convictions and/or disqualifications. Directors needs to understand the duties that they owe to the company and shareholders


Shareholders of companies can also fall into disputes for a myriad of reasons.  Shareholders need to understand the rights and options available to them when faced with undesirable circumstances.
