Business Sales & Purchases

Whether you are buying or selling a business, one of the experienced commercial solicitors at Griffiths Parry Lawyers, will provide you with practical and sound advice and expertise to ensure the safe and efficient conveyance of a business and its assets.

Business Structures/Asset Protection

Having the right business structure will save you time and money and protect your business and assets.

Deciding on and reviewing the structure of a company and/or business entity is critical at each stage in the life of a business – from the purchase or establishment of a new entity, expansion, down sizing, and the introduction of new partners, right through to the sale of the business.

After working so hard to grow your business, it is extremely important to protect what you’ve achieved through effective asset protection. With the right business structure you can be sure that you minimise your risk exposure.

Even successful businesses can improve performance and profitability through a structural review.

Naturally there are many considerations to take into account when deciding on which structure will best suit your business or venture.  These include protecting your assets and planning for succession.

Whether you’re a sole trader, partnership, company, trust or a combination of entities, the commercial team at Griffiths Parry Lawyers will give you the practical advice you need to make the right decision.


Whether you are:

  • an existing franchisee or franchisor needing advice on your rights and obligations;
  • an investor considering buying a franchise; or
  • an existing business owner considering franchising your business

we’ve got the experience and expertise you’ll need to find the right solution for you.

Our commercial team can provide you with practical advice on where you stand, compliance with the Franchising Code of Conduct and all matters incidental.

Based on the Sunshine Coast, Griffiths Parry Lawyers represent both franchisors and franchisees locally and throughout Australia.

Commercial Agreements

Business relationships are for the most part governed by commercial agreements and it is absolutely critical that you get the right advice before you sign on the dotted line.

From terms of trade, contracts with clients and suppliers, the provision of goods and services, joint ventures, mortgages and everything in between, our commercial team has the experience and expertise to ensure that the deal you shook hands on, is the deal reflected in the contract.

Already signed the contract?
