Legal Advice

It is strongly recommended you consult your lawyer before entering into any contract where a substantial amount of money is involved or the potential liability under the contract is substantial.

A lawyer can:

  • explain the terms of a contract if you are unsure of the meaning;
  • explain your rights and obligations under that contract;
  • negotiate more favourable terms in the contract;
  • prepare a contract for you to enter into with another party;
  • explain the consequences of entering into the contract before you commit to it; and
  • advise and assist you if the other party breaches the contract, or if you are accused of breaching the contract.
