Commercial Law

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.

We often work with clients who are establishing businesses and can help to guide through their new ventures by pointing them to the right direction in their business purchase/sale, leasing of business premises and finance agreements. Our team at Johnsons can expertly draft contracts and special conditions to your satisfaction. Advice is only one click away.

For clients wishing to develop a real estate project, we have an experienced team that can support you throughout this process.

We regularly collaborate with professionals of different disciplines, such as finance brokers, town planners, surveyors and can give you tailored advice regarding the whole aspect of developing real estate projects, be it financial, taxation, planning or corporate.

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.

Property Law

Our team at Johnsons Solicitors & Attorneys have extensive experience in residential conveyancing. We pride ourselves in being cost-effective, contactable and time-efficient throughout your matter. We can advise you from pre-signing contract review until settlement of your property and explain the contract and the process to you in plain English.

Our professional fees are fixed unless there are complications with your matter and all outlays such as search costs and disbursements will be itemised once finalised. Your matter is our priority and will be handled by our expert conveyancers supervised by a director of the firm.

We have been involved in several local residential developments and large-scale commercial developments in Queensland and New South Wales. We have acted for both international developers and national developers, providing services including but not limited to:

  • Negotiating and documenting complex Contracts and Put and Call Option Deeds,

  • Sophisticated Deed of Agreements;
  • Acquisition and disposal of Project Land;
  • Complex project documentation;

We have experts in this field who can give you sound commercial advice and at the same time protect your legal interests throughout the whole development.

Over the years, we have acted for several clients and syndicates for their acquisition and disposal of their commercial property transaction. We provide services ranging from:

  • Industrial,
  • rural and
  • shopping centres.

We can assist in a full range of issues that might arise with your property transaction and will provide practical, commercially focused advice to you.

Migration

The path to migrating to Australia is a complex one, especially for a person who is unfamiliar with Australian migration laws and rules. The laws regarding migration are constantly changing, and the team at Johnsons are up to date with the latest laws. Our migration staff has worked with leading national corporations and we have a strong reputation and proven success rate, particularly on employer-sponsored visas and investment visas. We have even had visas successfully reinstated after they were cancelled due to character concerns and criminal records.

Contact us for excellent, prompt and easy-to-follow advice for your migration needs.

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.

  • Divorce
  • Binding financial agreements, including pre-nuptial agreements
  • Application for consent orders
  • Property settlements
