BUSINESS AND WEALTH STRUCTURING
Nautilus Law Group offers commercial law services to our business clients, in a wide range of matters:
Commercial Arrangements (Buy Sell Agreements, Joint Venture Agreements, Partnership Agreements)
"Commercial Agreements" - a very simple term, for a complex topic! As business advisors to clients in Australia and clients based in Canada, Hong Kong, UK and the United States doing business in Australia - we are accustomed to a broad range of issues. We have consulted on and prepared international trade agreements, customs and currency hedging agreements, wholesale/distributor agreements, warranty cards (for domestic and imported goods), supply agreements, credit agreements, mining agreements, and joint venture and multi-national venture agreements.
Commercial Law Debt Recoveries:
We offer a committed commercial debt recovery litigation team, which handles large volume referrals from National and International clients. As a result of the volume of litigation in this area, we efficiently manage matters within strict protocols and offer fees which correlate with the Federal Court Scale Fee Award Rates. Fees for recovering debts start at $77.00, and individualised strategic plans for debt recovery management can be written to suit your needs. Further, you are able to obtain status reports directly from our website -24 hours a day, 7 days a week on the status of your debt recovery files. We can also offer you a referral to a mercantile agency, should you wish to work on a strictly commission basis before proceeding to the solicitor demand and litigation stage.
Other Commercial Law Disputes:
At the time of each referral, we will meet with you to determine if alternate dispute resolution is appropriate (such as mediation or arbitration). If such processes are not immediately available, appropriate or successful, we examine the matter to consider not only the strengths of your case, but also the weaknesses. Your case is built from the ground up with an analysis of the potential recoveries, offset by the approximate fees and costs. We will consider with you the commercial realities of your extraneous costs of personal commitment, business interruption and resource requirements. Once we have the game plan agreed to, and understand the facts and circumstances, we will aggressively pursue your remedies and rights. As with commercial debt recoveries, your case will be available to you directly through our website - 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. You are able to view the status of correspondences, the agenda for next stages of proceedings and comment directly onto your matter.
