Whether you are an experienced business owner making a further acquisition, or entering into small business for the first time, we can help you. We will work with you (and often your accountant) to ensure that business decisions are made in an effective way.
One aspect of acting for small business owners that we pride ourselves on achieving quality outcomes for clients is risk management. Whether you are buying or selling, taking on a partner, entering into a joint venture or restructuring your business, we can provide quality advice to minimize risk.
Steele+Co is also experienced in assisting clients entering into and selling franchise business. We have clients who are now successfully trading national brand name franchises, and can advise you from the moment you make contact with a franchisor and receive the initial disclosure documents.
Our experience is that our small business clients often need assistance at times other than at purchase or sale of their business. Our ongoing relationship with clients means that many legal problems can be avoided when clients phone us to ask ‘what do I do in the circumstances?’ We find this occurs in employment, debt, and commercial disputes matters. Whether you are an existing small business client or not, phone us for advice no matter what your question or problem.
