What we do.

Kyard Business Law provides a range of business law services to help you navigate a variety of legal situations that your business may encounter.

Business Set-up

When setting up a business, it’s hard to know where to start. Choosing a business structure, registering business names and trade marks, taking on employees, and negotiating leases and contracts with third parties are just some of the things you may need to deal with. We can provide advice, complete registrations, and draft the necessary documents to help you get on with the task of running your new business.

Buying and Selling a Business

Buying or selling a business is a daunting task. Without proper advice, mistakes can be made leading to substantial financial and personal stress. We will walk you through the process from start to finish. We provide comprehensive advice on how best to protect your interests in negotiating and contacting with other parties, helping you move forward with confidence.

Leases

Whether you’re a tenant or a landlord, we can assist with a range of issues with your retail or commercial lease. From negotiating and drafting an initial lease, to lease disputes and the end of a tenancy, we can help you understand your rights and responsibilities at every stage during a lease relationship.

Employment Law

It can be difficult for employers to understand what their rights and responsibilities are in relation to their employees. Employment disputes often arise from this confusion. We can assist employers in drafting contracts and provide advice on obligations to employees, mitigating the risk of employment disputes before they occur and strengthening the employer’s position if disputes arise. If you find yourself in an employment dispute, our team can advise and represent you in a range of matters including:

  • Unfair dismissal

  • Constructive dismissal

  • Underpayment claims and entitlement disputes

  • Independent contracting issues

Consumer Law

The Australian Consumer Law applies to most retail transactions, and some commercial transactions, for goods and services in Australia. It’s essential that business owners understand how the Australian Consumer Law applies to their business to avoid making costly mistakes. We advice suppliers, retailers, and manufacturers on compliance with the Australian Consumer Law as well as representing them in consumer disputes.

Contract Drafting

Need a contract but not sure where to start? We can help. We can draft a range of contracts and agreements you might need for your business including:

  • Terms and conditions

  • Partnership agreements

  • Shareholder agreements

  • Licence agreements

  • Franchise agreements

  • Employment contracts

  • Restraints of trade

  • Loan agreements

  • Contractor agreements

  • Supply agreements

Litigation

No matter how well a business is run, it can find itself in litigation. Going to Court is stressful. We can help guide you through the process and represent you whether you’ve been sued or need to sue someone to enforce your rights.

Mediation

A lot of the time, disputes can be resolved by the parties having the opportunity to work through the issues in mediation to come up with an agreed solution. Whether you’ve chosen to mediate or a Court has ordered you to try mediation, we can help you develop a strategy to negotiate a solution that works for you.
