Irving Law business lawyers can assist you with your contract or commercial lease
CONTRACTS: Irving Law, Perth business lawyers, assist clients with all types of contracts. Many clients come to us because they need a contract lawyer to prepare new contracts, or to review a contract that they have been given to sign by another party. We can suggest changes, and prepare lists of edits for negotiation, and letters to the other party requesting the changes.
Irving Law’s founder, James Irving, is experienced in preparing a great variety of commercial contracts. He has worked as a contract lawyer in law firms and government agencies.
James says: “I enjoy working with business owners to understand their businesses and create contracts that will work well for them. Too often lawyers simply give their clients standard documents that don’t carefully reflect the features of the client’s business.”
If you would like to have a solicitor to carefully check a business contract someone has given you to sign, or if you need a new contract drafted up, please contact us to get a fee estimate for that work.
You may save money up front by not having your commercial agreement prepared or checked by a business lawyer, but if you end up in court with a dispute you will most likely spend a lot more money sorting out the dispute. We suggest that putting an effective contract into place right from the beginning that reduces the risk of problems arising in future is always worthwhile.

COMMERCIAL LEASES: If your business is leasing premises to operate an office, showroom, factory, storage area in Perth or suburbs or for some other purpose, you will almost certainly need to sign a lease. If you would like to have the lease checked by a business lawyer, Irving Law can review the document and provide you with appropriate advice.
We can also draft a commercial lease, if you are a landlord. Note that there is a difference between “shop” leases, which have special controls imposed by legislation, and “industrial” leases, which don’t have the same controls.
If you are preparing to rent commercial premises, you may find this information guide by Small Business WA useful.
