Getting the Right Advice
The team at Tony Sowden Lawyers are not only lawyers, but highly capable strategic thinkers. In fact, we are happiest when helping our clients at the front end – when we are helping to structure and strategise to avoid pitfalls and create happy and successful businesses, rather than just being brought in at the 11th hour to try to salvage something from the wreckage.
We do what we do and do it well. In this modern world, where reams of law are being made as we speak, the age of the generalist practitioner has passed. It is important to know that your legal advisers know what they know, and know where to go for the other skills that you might need.
Tony Sowden Lawyer does not offer all things to all people. We don’t do the ordinary legal stuff – we tend to leave the conveyancing, personal injuries, family law and criminal matters to all those other firms that deal with those issues day to day.
We concentrate on our core skills. When our clients have issues that require other specialised skills, we know where to source those skills – and we know how best to brief them and engage them on the right terms. Our clients are covered with the best solutions, on the best terms, whenever they need them. You will obtain innovative solutions backed by astute insight and substantial experience – exemplary service in business and corporate law.
Our business lawyers intervene most effectively before issues become out of hand. When you involve us at the outset of your venture or idea, we work with you to develop cost effective strategies that will contribute directly to the success of your business.
Essential to our effectiveness is a team approach – we work harmoniously with your other advisers to provide a seamless and holistic solution for your business. There is nothing worse than an unproductive turf war between various advisers who are all competing for primacy.
Our primary objective is to assist and encourage the development of commercial entities of all sizes. We are happy to be involved in it all – from start-up businesses, small and medium sized businesses, to large corporate enterprises in South East Queensland, Australia and internationally. While capable of delivering tailored legal services to almost any type of industry, we have a particular interest in:
- Distribution, Logistics and Terms of Trade
- Corporate and Business Structuring
- Tourism & Hospitality
- Agribusiness and Horticulture
- Medical and Dental Practices
- Branding, Advertising and Marketing
- Intellectual Property Commercialisation
- Information Technology
- Government and Public Sector
- Not-for-Profit organisations, Charities and Community Associations
- Indigenous Communities – Economic Development and Cultural Hertiage
- Corporate Governance
Tony Sowden’s team supports businesses in a number of different ways. We draft terms and conditions of trade, prepare contracts and related documentation, assist with regulatory compliance and corporate governance, give advice on business entity and contract structuring, contract administration, the identification of contract related claims and resolving contracts and other disputes.
