who we are

StevensVuaran Lawyers is a commercial commercial law firm.  Did we just type “commercial” twice?  Yes, we did.  Was that a typo?  No, it wasn’t.  What’s with all the questions? Well, let us explain.

We are a commercial law firm. We can advise on all aspects of the business you are in (or the business you want to be in). We can give you advice on establishing a new business or selling a business. We can assist you in buying a business.  When we do this, we like to work with your accountant (who will deal with all questions of tax).

We can advise you about, and document, all manner of business transactions, such as shareholder, joint venture, and partnership agreements. We can and will do the worrying for you when it comes to competition law, and we are very good at helping you protect your intellectual property by advising on and managing trademark registrations, defences, and oppositions.  If your property concerns are more about the real than the intellectual, we have considerable experience in commercial leasing and property work for owners, buyers, landlords and lessees.

We have specific expertise in dealing with all manner of employer/employee issues, including discrimination law and work health and safety.  We can help you understand the regulatory environment in which your business operates (including dealing with regulators when they come knocking at your door).

We can help you identify, and resolve, the different types of internal and external disputes which can arise in business.  We do most of our litigation in the Supreme and Federal Courts, but we can also deal cost-effectively with disputes which might be smaller in size, but which can still create big headaches for your business.

What makes us a commercial commercial law firm? We are committed to working with you to find and deliver good commercial solutions and helping you get on with business.  And when it comes to disputes, we never lose sight of the importance of looking for a commercial resolution.

our logo

Our logo is a fractal; on first impression, it appears simple, but its contour is infinitely complicated as is the business world. The closer you approach a fractal, the more detail is revealed.

Taking the very complicated, and making it appear simple, is how we like to work. You know just how complicated your business is, and you don’t bring a problem to us so that you can hear us say, “Your problem is really complicated”.  You bring problems to us so we can work together with you to solve them.

We have the technical skills and experience to identify and solve the most difficult problems you are likely to encounter, but more importantly, we are driven to find the simplest and most sensible business solutions (or at least the simplest and most elegant explanations of the best solutions available). Our logo may not tell you what we do, but its fractal shape tells you how we do it.
