            Commercial Law

            DWF (Australia)’s Commercial Law Team is one of our biggest practice arms, and is comprised of senior solicitors from Sydney, Melbourne, & Newcastle, who are all experts in their respective areas.

            Our Commercial Law experts are recognised for their skill in managing the complex balance between planning, accurate scoping and business analysis, day-to- day governance, flexibility, acceptable costs and incentivisation. Whether you are looking at outsourcing, putting in place terms and conditions, or involved in manufacturing, supply and logistics, strong commercial agreements need to be in place.

            With a particular strength in working for major national and international organisations, while other lawyers may advise from narrow areas of experience, our approach is to work collaboratively, across the firm, to draw on a deep and wide knowledge of the industry challenges you face.

            We are committed to providing high quality and innovative commercial legal advice and assistance to our clients.
