Commercial Litigation

The goal in any commercial dispute is to resolve it as quickly as possible and allow you to get back to your business. If you find that litigation is required, or litigation has been commenced against you, then you need certainty: certainty as to your legal position in the dispute; and certainty as to the best course of action to achieve your objectives and get back to your business.

Appius Lawyers undertake a consistent process that will give you as much certainty as possible and, based on your needs, give you a plan of action to allow you to return to your business as soon as possible.

Wills & Probate

Home Made Wills are a curse – Master Sanderson

Without a properly drafted Will you cannot dictate how your assets are distributed upon your death. Without a Will your estate will be distributed according to the Administration Act (WA) (Act) and under this Act your assets will be distributed to your closest living relatives in prescribed shares.

In addition under a Will, unlike the Act, you may leave assets to non-relatives, charities and organisation.

Contact Appius to discuss your needs and requirements to ensure your family is looked after and your financial and other affairs are seen to, according to your wishes, upon your death.

Sale of Business & Franchising

The sale or purchase of a business requires a great deal of care and skill to ensure that you protect yourself, as a seller, and that you know what you are getting into, as a purchaser. Appius Lawyers assists with both the buying and selling of a business to ensure that the transaction proceeds as smoothly as possible.

Franchising is a good option for both Franchisors and Franchisees. For Franchisors, if you have a good: business system of operation; product; or recipe, you can license that system, product or recipe to a Franchisee, who pays a fee and has an interest in the expansion of your business. Both parties are then able to work together for mutual benefit. As a Franchisee you have the benefit of a proven system, product or recipe, and support to operate your new business.
