Overview

DibbsBarker is renowned for its innovative solutions and consistently commercial approach. Our clients rely on us to find the best solutions to their legal issues and to execute them sensitively and flawlessly.

Our Commercial team is dedicated to building close and ongoing relationships with each and every client. We invest the time to get to know each client’s organisation, people and commercial objectives in order to develop an in-depth understanding of their business. As a result of this understanding, our team is able to advise clients on a higher strategic level.

An important part of developing these relationships is building an understanding of the industries and market sectors in which our clients operate. While our Commercial team acts for clients in a range of industries, we have developed specialist knowledge in relation to our core industry groups.

Our Commercial service offering spans the full range of ‘cradle to grave’ corporate requirements, from contract preparation and negotiations, to company secretarial duties, to supporting clients in liaising with market regulators such as ASIC, ASX and ACCC. We also advise on the establishment and structuring of new businesses.

We enjoy relationships with many world-leading businesses operating in Australia, including Breville, Makita, Paramount, ResMed and Yamaha, all of whom we have worked with closely for many years. Through our European Desk we also support international companies looking to establish a presence in Australia. We provide a complete business solution incorporating Australian regulations, business customs, logistics and industry networks, to set businesses up to succeed.
