Starting or running a business can be a daunting experience. You may have the relevant ‘know how’ in your particular industry; however, operating a business on any scale is riddled with legal obligations and risks.

  • Asset protection advice
  • Entity Set Up
  • Shareholder and Partnership Agreements
  • Commercial and Retail Shop Leasing
  • Commercial Conveyancing
  • Business Sales and Acquisitions
  • Developing your business’ Terms and Conditions
  • Employment and Independent Contractor Agreements
  • Debt Recovery
  • Contract review and advice
  • Franchise Agreements and advice
  • Sales and Purchase of Rent Rolls

Intellectual Property

 

 

Intellectual Property is generally defined as ‘creations of the mind’. This can include your work or creation in a design, brand, colour, invention, painting, sculpture, song, book, film etc. 

 

At Ardor Legal we encourage you to consider your creative works as the goods and services you provide in your business. Our job is to ensure the value of your work is acknowledged and protected so that you can continue doing what you do best… creating.

 

Trademarks

 

Creating a unique brand (i.e your logo or label) is a fundamental part of your marketing strategy. It is a way for the public to recognise your goods or services and associate it with a particular quality and image.

 

For this reason, it is also imperative that you take the necessary steps to protect the intellectual property in your brand.

 

At Ardor Legal we can help you understand the value of your brand and take the necessary steps to ensure it is protected through registration as a trademark, licencing or litigation.

 

Warning: Registering a business or company name does not give you ownership in that name. Only registration as a trademark can offer you that protection.

 

Copyright

 

Copyright is the legal ownership of original expressions of an author in literary, dramatic, musical and artistic works. Unlike other forms of intellectual property, there is no requirement to formally register copyright ownership. Copyright is automatic and in most circumstances will last for a period of 70 years after the death of the author.

 

Copyright laws allow the owner to commercially benefit in their creative works by selling, licencing, reproducing, performing, publishing or communicating such works.

 

At Ardor Legal we can assist you in protecting the copyright in your creative works. For more information on protecting your Intellectual Property, contact us on info@ardorlegal.com.au

Start-ups

 

 

We understand that ‘every penny counts’ when starting a new business; however, overlooking the need to obtain quality legal advice could cost you a lot more than you bargained for in the long term.

 

Accordingly, we want to encourage you to obtain the advice you need and take advantage of our special pricing solutions exclusive to start-up businesses.

Debt Recovery

Ageing debtors have an adverse impact on your working capital and cash flow. Unfortunately, the longer the debt remains outstanding the more reluctant the debtor will be to pay your account.

 

We understand the last thing you need is costly legal fees when you are already under financial strain. Accordingly, our firm offers a cost effective solution to your debtor problem.

 

At Ardor Legal we can prepare and forward a ‘Letter of Demand’ to all your debtors for a fixed fee.

 

For more information on our debt recovery solutions, including fixed fee service, contact us on info@ardorlegal.com.au.

Client Testimonials

 

When you have reached the end of reasonable terms to deal with a legal matter, then you get in touch with Elizabeth Rebolledo from Ardor Legal.  We had a contractual matter that we just couldn’t seem to bring to a conclusion and when we approached Elizabeth it took only one letter, some negotiations and the matter was settled.  She has a no nonsense approach, truthful advice and realistic outcomes presented for consideration and is absolutely tenacious in her defence of her clients.  I highly recommend Elizabeth and her firm to you and would have no hesitation to having you contact me direct to discuss this reference.
