Baré Legal has a long-standing history with our foundation built from John R Buman & Co, spanning over 35 years.
We are the parent company to ‘Consultant Paralegals’, which provides competitively priced conveyancing services with the oversight of lawyers.
We are a family-owned business with a team of lawyers and law clerks who have vast experience in delivering optimum legal services to our clients. Headed by our Principal Tim Baré, we service clients in a broad range of practice areas and in any part of Victoria.
Our staff work across various parts of Victoria, and we are challenging the concept of a traditional Law Firm by delivering services with flexibility and convenience to meet your needs.
Our Key Services
We have extensive experience in supplying practical and efficient legal services to clients in businesses and companies of all sizes. We can help in the sale or purchase, and settlement of business contracts and many more services such as:
- Confidentiality Agreements
- Debt Recovery
- Shareholders Agreements
- Business Advice
- Transfer of Trademarks
Sale and Purchases of Businesses
The sale of your business is especially important and at Baré Legal we will make this process easy as possible whilst ensuring that contracts are drafted accurately, considering matters such as:
- Transferring employees
- If there is a lease, there are responsibilities on the transferor
- Your lender may have a secured interest over the business so this needs to be managed
Our lawyers will ensure they foresee any potential issues for both the seller and the purchaser to advise appropriately.
For business purchaser’s, our team will ensure the transition is as smooth as possible so that you are protected. This is achieved with matters such as contract advice, suggesting amendments to the contract, making sure you receive required employee entitlements, the lease is adequate and whether any amendments are needed, and the goodwill of the business is protected in that the contract has adequate restraint clauses.
We have the necessary skills across different legal areas to make the sale or purchase of your business as seamless as possible. Our team have a thorough understanding of commercial law, contract law, leasing requirements and property to supply sound advice and avoid or minimise potential problems arising.
Commercial Leases including Retail Leases
Landlords and tenants require legal advice in relation to leasing issues, which is particularly relevant with the COVID pandemic. Our services include drafting leases, disclosure statements, renewal of lease, transfer of lease and advising tenants in relation to the lease.
If you are considering entering a lease for a commercial property you need to understand your obligations as a tenant, and we will make sure the terms of the lease protect your interests. On the other hand, we will draft the lease with clear terms ensuring they are clear and therefore reducing the risk of any dispute.
Our team are experienced with commercial leases and can offer services to all parties to a lease. We will endeavour to streamline all leasing arrangements with a strong focus on delivering the outcome you need.
