Business Structuring

Implementing the right business structure is crucial for investment and business.

Choosing how you will run your business, whether as a sole trader, in a partnership, as a company or via a trust, will have significant implications, including liability and tax. From time to time as a business changes, the structure may need to be reviewed to ensure it is meeting the needs of its owners.

There are certain times when legal advice is particularly relevant — starting out, selling an interest in the business, when a business partner exits, or the business partners are in dispute.

No matter what stage you’re at, MV Law’s team of expert business lawyers can help. We are passionate about the success of your business and our focus is to help you succeed.

We have expertise in asset protection, finance, commercial transactions, taxation, dispute resolution, insolvency, business succession and estate planning, and deliver quality advice tailored to your particular issue.

We work together with your accountant and other business advisers to provide high quality service to your business. And in the case of any dispute between business owners, our commercial and litigation teams work together to accomplish the best result for you and your business.
