Our Fees are:

  1. A fixed lump sum amount when you ask us to fix them.

OBTAINING A “JUST & EQUITABLE” FAMILY LAW PROPERTY SETTLEMENT

HOW TO EXPOSE
HIDDEN ASSETS

It is our experience that in some cases one partner carefully plans their separation and hides money, real estate, and other assets in order that their partner does not get everything they would be entitled to.

In this article we give you some practical advice and tools that can help you fight back and recover that which has been hidden.

PROTECT ASSETS FROM A
FAMILY LAW PROPERTY SETTLEMENT

In Family Law Property settlement proceedings all assets and liabilities of each party, are combined to form the matrimonial property pool. Business interests and trust structures are included in the definition of “property” under the Family Law Act 1975 and will form part of this asset pool. There are some exceptions which we discuss in this article.

BUY OR SELL A BUSINESS OR PROPERTY WITH CONFIDENCE

DUE DILIGENCE – WHAT TO LOOK FOR WHEN BUYING A BUSINESS

When purchasing a business, it is essential that the purchaser carries out thorough enquiries about the business that they are purchasing. It is almost impossible to successfully win a claim against the seller after the sale for non-disclosure. At law, the seller of the business can rely on the principle of “Caveat Emptor”, which loosely means – Buyer Beware.

For this reason, the buyer should carry out “Due Diligence”. This is where you and or your team of advisors test every claim made by the seller by analysing every part of the business and every claim made by the seller about their business. This article looks at 5 of the most important things that should be examined and what to look for.
