Commercial lawyers delivering high-quality, value-led legal solutions for modern business needs in Australia and overseas.
Our work includes day-to-day advisory on corporate and commercial establishment and operational matters, all kinds of commercial contracting, the full suite of corporate transactions and specialised advice on protection and commercialisation of IP assets.
Whilst we act for some of Australia’s biggest and best-known media companies and other large private, public and listed entities, we also represent a range of businesses by size, including inventors, founders, start ups and SMEs. Many of our clients recognise the value of intangible assets, such as technology platforms, databases, brands, inventions and other IP, and seek our specialised advice in this area.
We broadly divide our Expertise into Corporate, Media, Digital and Commercial practice groups. See Expertise.
We make it a priority to understand what makes our clients’ businesses tick, and their specific challenges and goals. This enables us to provide advice that can be seamlessly integrated into the business, and to efficiently structure and execute legal transactions.
At Edwards + Co, client matters receive principal-level attention in significantly higher ratios and at far more affordable rates than our large law firm competitors. We take an agile, communicative, team-based approach to projects. This methodology accesses specialised team member expertise, balances experience with cost and optimises available resources. It is an approach we have tried and tested, and continuously refine, with the goal of continuous improvement.
We innovate with new ways of communicating and delivering legal solutions. For example, our proprietary LAWFIT™ business diagnostics tool takes a deep dive into businesses to assess and score legal fitness. You can learn more about LAWFIT™ here.
When not working on client projects, we research and write about emerging legal and business issues, and publish this content in Insights + Resources and our free newsletter, the Disruptive Law Report. You can sign up to receive the Disruptive Law Report here.
