A lease is arguably the most important aspect of your business. Whether you are a landlord, a lessee, looking to assign a lease, or seeking advice on your lease—a lease contract is the foundation of your relationship with the other party.
To ensure you fully understand your rights, responsibilities and obligations under your lease or potential lease, our team at Johnsons will:
- Determine what you want under the lease and what your goals are;
- Provide timely, comprehensible and astute advice;
- Negotiate with the Landlord / Lessee / Assignor or Assignee (as the case may be) on your behalf;
- Draft the lease documents; and
- Assist in executing lease documents.
We are aware that lease negotiations, drafting and execution of documents should be 'short and sweet' as we want to ensure you can get back to your business as soon as possible.

If you own a company, plan to own a company or are thinking about it, a shareholder agreement is one of the things you may need to consider. A shareholder agreement is a contract that sets out the rights and duties of shareholders (or members) in a company, particularly regarding a shareholder's ownership over the company's assets.

Wills & Estate
A will is arguably one of the most important documents you will sign in your life. Moreover, situations are constantly changing, and your will should be updated to reflect the changes.
If a person dies without a valid will, this means that they die 'intestate'. In this situation, the Public Trustee is then appointed as the Executor of the will and your assets may not be distributed to your true wishes.
Our team at Johnsons have been drafting and executing wills for more than 25 years. We understand the complex rules around will drafting and can explain the process clearly, and in Mandarin and Cantonese.
Don't leave your will to the eleventh hour, come see us for a consult today. Alternatively, you may also call or email our friendly staff.
Estate administration may seem like a daunting task. If done wrongly, the Executor may end up breaking the law. Our team at Johnsons will ensure that any Executor, newly minted or weathered, can come to us for exceptional advice, every step of the way.
A power of attorney is granting a trusted person or persons the power to make choices on your behalf in the event that you are unable to. For example, if you are overseas, or if you are in lockdown. Our team at Johnsons can help you draft the Power of Attorney according to your wishes.
