Formed in 1982 as Geoff Bartels, Solicitors, Bartels Business
Lawyers is a firm specialising in providing strong and
practical advice to business ventures and business people from start-ups to businesses with $100,000,000 turn-over.
Typically our established clients will have between 15 and 150
employees and a turnover of between $1.5m to $100,000,000.
We do not however overlook acorns from which huge oak trees
will grow even though that process may take many seasons and drought flood and fire may intervene.
Although we address established businesses we also care
for and nurture small and growing businesses including franchisees, local stores,
micro and start-up businesses. Indeed it is our experience that these
small businesses are often in more need of good experienced counsel and problem solving than larger more established enterprises.
Our business advice covers corporate, partnership, franchise (both
franchisors and franchisees), marketing , trade practices, contract
negotiation, asset and business acquisition and labour law.
