A longer term strategy

If you’re serious about using the law as a force within your business, then you’re going to need to commit to a longer term strategy. Dealing with legal issues as and when they come up has you playing defense. You need to get ahead of the curve.

Successful business people commit to a periodic investment in the legal functions of their enterprise. Over a period of months and years they build a solid fortress that can withstand attack, and serve as a launching pad for new adventures.

The key things you need to get right, include:

  • The terms on which you deal with your customers;
  • How you buy things from your key suppliers;
  • The manner in which you engage and manage your team;
  • The identification, protection and exploitation of your intellectual property;
  • The pro-active management of your real estate interests, including leases and owned property;
  • How you comply with the ever-changing regulations of your industry; and
  • The structure through which you protect the value you’re building within your business.

If you’re ready to make the investment, call us on 1300 654 590 and we’ll work alongside you to map out a longer term plan to fortify your business.
