Frequently Asked Questions

Finding the right Adelaide lawyer to resolve your legal matters can be difficult. But at YLP – Your Legal Partner, we want to make it simpler by answering some of your commercial law questions.

Do I need legal advice and representation when buying and/or selling a business?

Buying and selling a business involves ensuring that you fully understand the agreement you’re entering into. If you don’t, you might be exposing yourself to immediate and future liabilities that you’re not aware of and wouldn’t have accepted when negotiating the deal. Obtaining the best, personalised legal advice from our highly experienced lawyers at YLP – Your Legal Partner will ensure that you’re fully informed about the deal you’re entering into, which ultimately means reducing your liabilities and maximising benefits.

Why is it important to protect my trademark?

The trademark of your business is its identity and is a powerful marketing tool. Your trademark and its reputation shows your customers who you are and the quality of your goods or services. So, by protecting your trademark, you’re preventing your competitors from gaining financially from passing off your trademark as their own. At YLP – Your Legal Partner, our lawyers will provide you with high quality, personalised trademark advice.

Why do I need terms and conditions and a privacy policy on my website?

Your website is your online brochure and/or retail shop, which is why both you and the customer must understand and agree on the terms of the transaction. And both parties must be clear about how the information on your website will be used. Our highly experienced lawyers at YLP – Your Legal Partner will provide you with the advice you need to ensure you reduce your liability and the likelihood of a dispute.

Do you offer fixed-price options for the preparation of business documents?

Yes, we do. At YLP – Your Legal Partner, once we’ve spoken to you about your needs and clearly understand the work required, our expert lawyers will provide you with a quote before commencing the work. Because we’ll treat your matter based on your specific situation and circumstances, you can have peace of mind knowing that you’re not just another number to us. Providing you with the best outcome to your legal matter is our highest priority.

What’s the difference between a family discretionary trust and a fixed unit trust?

Quite simply, discretionary trusts are usually used for one family and gives the trustee the discretion to allocate financial benefits of the trust each year. On the other hand, unit trusts are ideal for two or more business partners. Why? Because the percentage and shares for each beneficiary are fixed, and therefore what benefit each receives, similar to a corporate structure. At YLP – Your Legal Partner, our Adelaide lawyers are highly experienced in providing you with advice regarding the trust that will be best suited for your particular situation.
