on the work that we do
 
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.
 
Employment
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.
Gambling
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.
 
Property, Construction and Environment
Demand for major infrastructure across the country, increased M&A activity, particularly in the middle market and an increase in market sentiment generally have seen a marked increase in the buying and selling of property, the commissioning of new construction projects and close attention to new and developing environmental and planning issues.
