Commercial Law

Commercial law, also referred to as business law or corporate law, is a division of civil law. Civil law governs the rights and responsibilities of individuals, businesses and government entities in their interactions with each other.

Commercial law covers a vast range of matters and focuses on the laws that govern commerce, trade, sales and merchandising, as well as the businesses and individuals who participate in those activities.

Our lawyers understand that any aspect of commercial law can be complex, which is why we work closely with our clients to learn about their situation, understand their objectives and provide cutting-edge legal advice in the following areas of law.

Banking and Finance

We can assist our clients with securing finance, review and advice in relation to mortgage and guarantees and indemnity documentation, banking litigation and the successful enforcement of security interests.

Contractual Disputes

Contractual disputes can turn into onerous, expensive and unpleasant matters and often turn good business relationships into sour relationships in the process.

That is why at Argent Law, we always endeavour to take a collaborative approach to disputes to resolve these matters as effectively and efficiently as possible for our clients.

We believe that the best way to deal with contractual disputes is to provide our clients with watertight Contracts and documentation in the first instance, so any issues or concerns are dealt with before the Contract is executed. It is far better to spend the time, in the beginning, to map out and consider possible issues and document the outcome to the resolution of these issues as opposed to litigating post fact.

Commercial Litigation

Argent Law can assist you to litigate your matters which arise out of ordinary commercial transactions including the construction of documents, trade and commerce, insurance, banking, finance, commercial agency, mortgage default, misleading and deceptive conduct, debt recovery and enforcement proceedings in the following Courts:

Supreme Court:        monetary or property claims over $200,000

County Court:           monetary or property claims over $100,000

Magistrates Court:   monetary or property claims up to $100,000

Further our team of lawyers have experience in a wide range of disputes at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) – Civil Division, Administrative Division.

Our team are also experienced in Small Business Commissioner (SBC) matters such as business claims and retail tenants and landlord disputes.

Debt Recovery

We also undertake debt collection work for matters ranging from minor debts to major debt recovery work. It is our preference to resolve these disputes by issuing letters of demand and undertaking negotiations, however, there are instances when proceedings need to be issued to recover monies owed to you. In the event that you receive a judgment debt and the monies still are not paid, we can commence enforcement proceedings which can include bankruptcy or liquidation.
