Corporate & Commercial

Corporate & Commercial

We have vast experience acting for both publicly listed and private companies on M&A transactions, capital raisings, restructures and general commercial contracts.

Contracting with suppliers and customers is the foundation of any business. We can assist to prepare and negotiate contracts to maximise commercial outcomes and to shield you from underlying trading risk.

Purchasing or selling a business will probably be the most significant transaction you’ll ever undertake. On the sell side, we’ll help you to identify and mitigate risks so you can realise maximum value. On the buy-side, we’ll make sure you get what you think you are buying.

Our approach with commercial contracts and M&A transactions is always pragmatic. We focus on getting the deal done in a way that protects your interests – we’ll never be an unnecessary roadblock.

Let’s face it – most lawyers are competent and know the law. Still, communication and a practical approach are crucial to a smooth transaction when selling a substantial asset such as a pharmacy.

Aaron Zoanetti understood me and could communicate complicated legal issues with ease and empathy. His commercial sensibility meant we only negotiated on important matters significantly impacting the end sale price and risks to me.

It was refreshing not to be surprised by any unexplained costs during a protracted process. I have used him since the sale and will continue doing so.
