Start-Up Advisory

SPEAK TO THE EXPERTS

Non-complicated results-driven corporate and commercial solutions.

Starting your own business can be challenging. It is often difficult to know where to begin. We recommend our clients seek advice from legal experts who will be able to guide them through the many processes and considerations that are involved when starting up a business. Our start-up advisory team offers comprehensive startup advice, empowering you to make informed decisions that drive your company’s success. 

 

BUSINESS STRUCTURE ADVICE

There are four main business structure options available, these are:

  • Company
  • Trust
  • Partnership
  • Sole Trader

Our startup advisors at GLG Legal Brisbane have extensive experience in advising startup founders on which business structure is the most suitable for their interests and vision. Upon selecting your business structure, our lawyers are able to further assist you with drafting the legal documentation as required by regulations and legislation.

 

PROTECTION OF YOUR INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

As with a great number of businesses, your most valuable asset will be your intellectual property. Therefore it is important to ensure that it is protected from the early stages of your start-up. The right startup advisor will be able to assist in any intellectual property matters that will need to be conducted during the process of your start-up, including registration of Trademarks and Patents.

We understand that protecting your intellectual property is important and will endeavour to ensure that all legal documentation in relation to your start-up adequately protects your rights.

 

COMPLIANCE WITH CHANGES IN THE LAW AND REGULATIONS

Since all businesses in Australia must comply with the laws and regulations under the Corporations Act and the Australian Consumer Law, depending on the type of business that you are setting up, there may also be industry-specific regulations that your business will need to comply with. Therefore, it is important to ensure that your legal documents comply with ‘the law’ from the beginning and are updated when changes occur.

At GLG Legal, our start-up advisory team ensures that all documents are drafted in compliance with the appropriate laws and regulations that protect your business from risks.
