Why Do I need a Commercial and Business Lawyer in NSW?

Engaging a commercial and business lawyer becomes crucial for various reasons. Firstly, they ensure that your business complies with all relevant laws and regulations, regardless of its size. A commercial lawyer can help develop a sustainable business strategy that adheres to the rules, thereby preventing any legal complications that may arise due to non-compliance, which can vary by state.

Secondly, when starting a new venture, numerous documents and contracts need to be drafted. Contractual errors can lead to major disputes and financial losses. A commercial lawyer’s expertise in writing these essential documents ensures precision and reduces the chances of errors, ultimately protecting your small business from potential disputes.

Furthermore, dealing with legal jargon and complex terms can be overwhelming for business owners. A commercial lawyer can help you understand the legal implications of your business activities, making sure you are well-informed and equipped to make sound decisions.

In addition, when negotiating with third parties or making important business deals, having a commercial lawyer by your side can prove advantageous. Their negotiation skills can bring a fresh perspective to the table and protect your business interests.

Moreover, businesses, regardless of their nature, can encounter legal issues that may adversely affect their operations. In such situations, a knowledgeable business lawyer becomes invaluable. They can effectively manage and navigate litigation cases, safeguarding your business and stakeholders from potential harm.

Lastly, for the long-term success of your business, proper planning and strategy are essential. Commercial lawyers offer valuable insights and support, guiding you through legal complexities and aligning your business activities with applicable laws and industry best practices, ultimately driving your business to new heights.

I have experienced an excellent service from PBL (especially from Anita) during the sale of my recent property on Central Coast, and during the purchase of our current property in Sydney. Throughout many challengers, especially with the sale, Anita presented her very professional and knowledgeable conveyancer, positively solving all obstacles. "Above and Beyond" Award going to Anita!!! 🙂

The five-star reviews are well-deserved. I needed a motion and a bylaw drawn up for urgent repairs of my strata unit and the AGM was in two weeks' time. My solicitor was friendly, efficient, knew what documents to ask for, and had all the paperwork prepared well within the timeframe. She also took the time to run through all the legalese and the different possible scenarios with me to make sure I understood. I am so glad to have found this firm and I will not hesitate to use their services again in future if the need arises.

I could not recommend Priority Business Lawyers highly enough. Reuben and Raea are not only amazing at what they do, they’re genuinely great guys. I went to them with very big expectations and a very small timeframe, they did what they had to do to make it happen for me. Their awesome work and promptness helped my dream become a reality and should I need to call on them again I would not hesitate. Thanks fellas!

I have been dealing with PBL for over a year in the M&A space as a result of a recommendation from a colleague. In several matters, Reuben and the team have always shown foresight in considering the broad picture. One matter in particular, circa $50m, has become very complicated. We are in good hands with PBL and the relationship is reliable, dependable and genuine. I would not hesitate to recommend Reuben, Raea and the team at PBL

Priority Business Lawyers did an absolutely fantastic job recently helping my parents with their big 'sea change' from Sydney to the Central Coast in a number of ways! Consummate professionals with a personal touch, and a coastal firm with big city firm capabilities.
