Corporate, Commercial & Business

Mellor Olsson serves businesses large and small, and we enjoy guiding them through all stages of their development. Our services range from the formation of new businesses to advice concerning takeovers of public companies.

We regularly advise on various options and establish a range of business structures for trading and investment purposes, including companies (public and private), trusts (family, unit and hybrid), partnerships and joint ventures. We often work hand-in-hand with accountants to achieve optimal tax, stamp duty and asset protection outcomes.

Whether you are buying or selling a business, shares in a company or an interest in a partnership, Mellor Olsson can assist and guide you through the transaction. Our clients not only value our technical expertise, but also our practical and commercially minded approach in giving tailored advice to suit their requirements.
