Commercial Law

Commercial Lawyers for Building and Construction Disputes

As our commercial, property and employment lawyers have worked with a diverse range of clients from Frankston, Langwarrin, Cranbourne, Carrum Downs and around Melbourne, we understand the legal issues specific to a range of industries.

Bayside’s lawyers have experience in litigation and civil procedures – notably within the building and construction sector – at courts of all levels, as well as the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal.

In addition, our clients have access to a broad range of private and commercial legal services, as our practice has experienced family, criminal, commercial and property lawyers.

VCAT Representation for Frankston Clients

In our commercial practice, as in all other areas of our business, we value diligence, fairness, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

What this means for large organisations is that we aim to avoid litigation, because extended litigation is costly and disruptive. Furthermore, conflict is costly, and we aim to provide value to the clients with whom we have developed relationships.

One of the benefits of having long-term relationships with our clients is that our business, property and employment lawyers develop a strong understanding of clients’ businesses and the issues they face. This means that we can implement thorough, proactive strategies to help them identify and mitigate potential legal risks.

It also means that when it comes to negotiating settlements on behalf of our clients, we can achieve a result that is truly right and fair.

Get the right representation from the start

Being proactive is the most cost-effective and time-efficient way of dealing with legal risk, which is why carefully developing and drafting contracts and agreements is particularly important.

Our employment lawyers and property lawyers have a strong focus on – and thus experience in – drafting agreements that help avoid legal risk, including:

  • Sale and purchase agreements
  • Shareholder agreements
  • Equity participation
  • Licensing documentation
  • Franchise agreements
  • Agency and distribution contracts
  • Debt recovery
  • VCAT building disputes

We can also provide advice on a range of issues businesses of all sizes face beyond standard operating legal issues. For example, Bayside’s property lawyers are available to provide advice on commercial property sales, leasing and disputes.

To arrange a meeting with a Bayside commercial, property or employment lawyer, whether you are in Frankston, Langwarrin, Cranbourne and Carrum Downs or in Melbourne’s CBD, call (03) 9781 4822.
