When you deal with Local Lawyers, you will find that we are straight forward, friendly and efficient. Our overarching focus is client service. We know that our business is built on our reputation and therefore we strive to exceed the expectations of our clients.
Local Lawyers is not a generalised practice. We focus on areas of law which we are good at and in which we are very experienced. We do not pretend to be experts at everything. Our main areas of practice are:
There are a myriad of issues which may affect a property’s Certificate of Title including Caveats, easements, boundary disputes, transfers between spouses, subdivisions, mortgages, or loss of the Title itself to name a few. With our extensive experience in these areas, clients can rest assured that they are in good hands.
Buying or selling property is often the most important and stressful transaction of a person’s life. Therefore we see our role as providing you with a steady hand to guide you through the process. We make the process as simple as possible for all our clients.
Commercial and Retail Leasing
We have significant experience in commercial leasing. Whether our clients are landlords or tenants of retail or commercial premises, we are able to guide them through the process and assist in protecting their interests throughout.
Business Sales and Purchases
Many of our clients run their own businesses. When it comes time to sell their business or purchase a new business we can help them comply with their legal obligations and protect their interests throughout the transaction.
Wills and Powers of Attorney
Planning for old age is a daunting but necessary task. A Will outlines your wishes after you pass away and Powers of Attorney are very important documents during your life, especially in the later years. We are able to discuss these documents and the issues associated with them with you and draft the required documents in a straight forward and simple manner, to make the process as easy as possible.
Probate and Deceased Estates
When a loved one passes away, we are able to assist the Executor of a Will to obtain a Grant of Probate and administer the Estate in a timely and efficient manner so as to take the stress out of dealing with government institutions and banks, allowing the family appropriate time to grieve.
From time to time businesses and individuals alike experience problems with debt, whether being in debt yourself or having another party owe you money. For the times where you need assistance we are able to help. Whether it’s negotiating a payment plan or representation in court, we can assist you in reaching a satisfactory outcome.
Sometimes you will not be able to resolve your disputes simply by negotiating with other parties. In these situations we can act on your behalf and commence litigation as a means of resolving your dispute. Although we are careful to ensure that we only commence litigation after all dispute resolution avenues have been exhausted, we can provide you with quality service and sound advice to guide you through the litigation process.
Other areas of Law
Although these are our main areas of practice, we understand that many of our clients will from time to time have legal issues in other areas of law. When this arises, we provide our clients with assistance wherever possible. If we are unable to assist, we provide referrals to other practitioners who practice in those areas of law.
