With over 15 years experience in Law, including 12+ years of professional practice (6 of those years at partner level), I have developed considerable knowledge of Business and Commercial law issues.
When setting up a business, owners need to choose the most appropriate structure that suits their needs and objectives. This decision will impact on many aspects of the business operations, at the beginning and into the future. It is important to get this right.
I specialise in working with new and established businesses to either help get them set up properly right at the very start, or to tidy things up once they have been operating for a while.
I have seen so much go wrong for businesses when they don’t take the time to set things up properly - the end result can be heart breaking.
The areas I can help you with include:
Buying a Business
Selling a Business
Deciding on a Business Structure
Incorporating a Company
Commercial Lease Disputes
Buying or Selling shares in a Company
Entering or Exiting a Partnership
+ Working Together
Whether you are considering setting up a new business, or you are an established business experiencing some problems, I can help to identify the issues, map out your options to move forward, and provide clear, practial and tailored advice that best suits you and your business goals.
If there is something that I don’t know the answer to, I will tell you, and I will help you find the expertise that you need (such as financial and accounting). I am happy to work alongside your accountant or financial advisor, if the need arises, to make sure that you are fully advised and informed.
+ My Approach
My style of practice is a little different to most lawyers, combining a ‘Life & Law’ approach, with a genuine desire to be accessible to everyday people, and to add value to each one of my clients.
The practice of law is more than simply knowing the law and how it works - it is also about taking the time to get to know and understand my clients, their life circumstances, past experiences, long and short term goals and objectives. I pride myself on thinking differently, being honest and direct, and providing crystal clear advice that will help achieve solutions that work.
I am practical and open minded, and am results driven. I can tailor my approach to your needs, so that each time we communicate you can be sure I am adding value and we are moving things forward. I don't procrastinate, and don’t believe in wasting time. If there is something to be done, I will get on and do it, so that you can go back to doing what it is you do best.
Consultations are 1 hour, and take place via Zoom, Skype, Face Time or Phone, whichever you prefer.
I will provide you with a Pre-Consultation Information Form that you can complete and return to me within 48 hours of our consultation, along with any additional documents that you would like to me see in advance.
My fees for a 1 hour consultation are $440.00. We may resolve your issue there, or we may map out a way forward for you.
There are several ways we can continue to work together. My service packages and fees are designed for everyday people, and will be tailored to your individual needs and budget.
My fees are not calculated on an hourly basis, and I don’t charge you in 6 minute blocks, or for taking your phone call or reading an email. I have designed my fee structures so that you know what you are getting from me, and you know what you are paying for, upfront, with no surprises.
My fee structures are fixed, and will be based on your individual circumstances, your specific needs, and the value I can bring to your situation. As things progress and change, what you need from me may change, and my fees may change. We will discuss this along the way, and you will always be aware of my fees ahead of time.
I will not agree to take on your matter if I am not satisfied that I can add value. To do so would be unfair to you, and would waste both your time and mine.

“As a woman in business myself, it is refreshing to have had Tracey looking after my business for several years. She has always been easy to understand, very approachable and knows exactly what the issues are and how best to resolve them.
As a small business owner I appreciate and value Tracey’s professionalism, empathy and ability to look after my interests so I can get on with my work. I highly recommend Tracey to anyone in small business. She is a strong, clever woman who delivers the ‘wow’ factor every time.”
