Commercial & Business Law

When your business is your livelihood, you need to know that the structure is sound, and your interests are protected. At E&A, we have a team of lawyers who provide commercial law services to businesses on Sydney’s northern beaches and surrounds.

Commercial law advice, also referred to as corporate law, is critical if you run any business or you are looking to create a new business.

There has been substantial growth in small to medium enterprises in recent years as large corporations outsource more and more of their non-core work and as small businesses mature and grow.

In fact, small business law is something we specialise in and, with the rapid growth of businesses in our region together with our history and knowledge of the area, we are well placed to service these new enterprises.

We have wide experience in all aspects of the operation of small to medium enterprises.
