BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT

Understanding the legal dimensions of business is essential to business improvement. The law is not just something you need to deal with when you have a problem. The law can be used to maximise value and provide a competitive advantage.

For example, if a key business strategy is “low cost”, establish long-term relationships with important suppliers through contracts. If it is “product leadership”, obtain strong intellectual property protection.

We would like to help you understand and implement the law to improve your business. In particular:

  • legal compliance: it is a strategic issue as compliance and good corporate governance can be key to attracting the best investors, employees, customers, suppliers and business partners;
  • risk management: anticipating and dealing with legal risks before they affect you can save a lot of stress and money;
  • contracts: relationships are fundamental to every business and contracts can be used to properly define and strengthen relationships and manage risk; and
  • intellectual property: use it and protect it to differentiate your products or services, create barriers to entry, differentiate your products, reduce costs and increase revenues.

Call Joe Kafrouni on (07) 3354 8888 to discuss your business and how we can help you get the best out of the law.
