Corporate and Commercial Law


Castle/Brown understands that because enterprise drives commercial activity our role is to assist clients to identify and seize commercial opportunities while reducing their exposure to legal risks.

We have advised a wide range of corporate and commercial entities from publicly listed companies to sole traders.  As a result we have extensive knowledge and understanding of the issues and challenges faced by corporations and those engaged in commercial life. 

We recognise the importance of making our advice clear and practical to facilitate decision making and enhancing prospects for capturing commercial opportunities. 

To enhance client outcomes we also have access to a private network of highly qualified experts from other disciplines. 

Examples of the corporate and commercial advice we commonly provide include company restructuring, employee share schemes and shareholder agreements, buy/sell agreements, terms of trade, inter-parties agreements including licensing, marketing, manufacturing and distribution agreements as well as advice on the application of the Companies Act, Commerce Act, Financial Markets Conduct Act, Fair Trading Act, and Consumer Guarantees Act and the new Contract and Commercial Law Actr when it is enabled, to the activities of clients.
