on the work that we do
"Advising my clients and solving their legal problems is more than just my job. I do feel very much a part of each of my clients' businesses, so I take it personally. Their success is my success."
We deliver seamless and integrated advice across all disciplines that impact upon a commercial property project including finance, corporate and the property aspect itself.
Competition / Antitrust
The role of regulatory compliance is central to the ongoing management of risk for any business activity. In this constantly evolving environment of business regulation it is essential for legal advisers to maintain a solutions orientation with their clients based upon a whole of business approach. This is the philosophy of the Addisons Competition and Antitrust team.
Corporate Mergers & Acquisitions
The key to a successful transaction is a complete understanding of the client’s business and our team invests significant time in building this detailed picture of the client, including the industry in which they operate. Your Corporate or M&A project will be led by lawyers who have practised in the largest firms in Australia as well as acting as in-house counsel, meaning that their experience is what will count when the project needs to be brought to conclusion.
The commercial success of any business is greatly affected by the people within the business – the directors, management and staff. The relationship between these groups is critical to the ongoing commercial viability of the business and the avoidance of operational risk.
Environment and Planning
The Addisons Environmental and Planning team is defined by its experience in acting for many of the largest and most well known retail, residential and commercial developers in Australia. The team provides ready access to the senior lawyers who have advised and been involved in complex development projects and environmental and planning litigation in the Land and Environment Court, the Court of Appeal of New South Wales and the High Court of Australia. Clients receive real value for their legal spend and advice that is practical, timely and technically accurate.
Businesses within the gambling sector seek our advice on all aspects of gambling law and regulation. This includes advice on business strategies for international projects, both in-bound into Australia as well as out-bound to international markets.
Insolvency / Reconstruction
The Addisons insolvency team advises on the practical and legal issues which a company, its administrators, directors, investors, their advisers and lenders, must be aware of, particularly in relation to the treatment of creditors' claims, which may attract ASIC scrutiny.
Intellectual Property & Media
Intellectual property law is rapidly evolving while becoming increasingly complex. We can help you to protect your intellectual property from the registration stage, through to commercialisation and, if necessary, enforcement, with an integrated approach incorporating both legal and technical elements of advice.
Litigation & Dispute Resolution
Our experience in running complex litigation, arbitrations and mediations means that our clients receive the advice that will move them to resolution quickly and effectively.
Marketing and Advertising
Effective marketing and advertising is an essential tool in the success of any consumer facing business. The Addisons Marketing and Advertising team work with cutting edge clients to bring cutting edge concepts to market quickly, to challenge competitor antics aggressively and to defend regulatory investigations effectively.
