Leanne Scott

Commercial Lawyer

Over numerous years of practice, it’s become clear that the better I know the history, current challenges and goals of my clients the more efficiently I can customise advice to their specific circumstances. In relation to employment law, this means fully understanding the organisation’s niche, objectives, operations and the culture they wish to foster to deliver the desired outcomes.

All organisations vary so a range of legal options needs to be evaluated when formulating effective employment contracts, protections for intellectual property, restraint of trade and privacy as well as industry specific considerations. We will assist you to identify your legal obligations so you have confidence when dealing with employees.

Navigating these intricacies effectively and efficiently is based on the trust that stems from a solid relationship. Invariably, this leads to outcomes that remove stress, save time and enable a profitable working culture to flourish. Being a small part of this is a privilege that never fails to give me a sense of pride and fulfilment.

We also provide advice on shareholder agreements and partnerships, sale and purchase of businesses, general commercial legal matters and dispute resolution.
