Commercial/Business Law

The Australian economy is presenting lucrative opportunities for business. In order to respond to these opportunities and thrive in a globally competitive market it is imperative you seek the assistance of experienced, accredited legal specialists. Diamond Conway has a dedicated team of commercial and business lawyers who partner with their business clients and deliver value-adding services.

We support small, medium and large businesses. We have the resources and expertise to act on large scale commercial transactions or disputes, but retain a personal service ethos and attention to detail so that our clients have a business partner, not just a firm of legal advisers.

Business Structures & Transactions

To ensure the economic sustainability and growth of your business, it is essential that its structure is specifically tailored to legal, taxation and regulatory objectives. Our commercial lawyers have experience in the area of business structuring and provide clients with substantial value-added advisory services.

The array of business structures we advise on includes sole proprietorships, joint ventures, partnerships and trusts. The structure of your business has long term implications for your taxation, personal liability and financing. These issues are addressed for our clients using an integrated, business focussed, holistic approach.


We act for some of Australia’s largest online e-commerce businesses. We advise our clients from the start-up phase, through reconstructions, business consolidations and acquisitions as well as sales of businesses and divestments. Some of the many matters we assist our clients with include database management, privacy compliance, commercial agreements with e-commerce suppliers and capital raisings.

Intellectual Property and Technology Law

In modern business, intellectual property is a core asset. Our lawyers possess experience in a wide array of IP-related legal issues from registration of trademarks to the enforcement of intellectual property rights.

We work collaboratively with our clients with their IP, identifying and addressing problem areas. Our clients welcome our input and benefit from our timely, cost-effective responses and value-added approach to IP issues.

Joint Ventures

Our lawyers have a depth of experience in relation to all forms of joint ventures including unincorporated joint ventures, incorporated joint ventures and unit-trust joint ventures. We advise on joint venture alternatives, structuring and prepare documentation including heads of agreements and all joint venture agreements.

Employment Law

We act for a host of small, medium and large employers. Our clients benefit from our experience in employment contracts, unfair dismissal and unlawful termination, workplace discrimination, sexual harassment, bullying, redundancy, restraints of trade, disciplinary matters, issues pertaining to the Competition and Consumer Act and Fair Work Act and assisting our clients to manage contact with the Fair Work Ombudsman.


Businesses today face substantial State and Federal privacy regulation. Without timely advice, business owners face the prospect of inadvertently falling foul of complex privacy legislation. We assist our clients with ongoing privacy compliance and keep them regularly appraised of changes to privacy laws so that they stay one step ahead. Our clients have told us that an investment in privacy compliance results in valuable long term time and cost savings for them.

Our services include drafting privacy statements, website privacy terms, privacy consents and policies, drafting and negotiating contractual protections, privacy audits and defending litigious privacy claims and prosecutions.


We have experience in advising and acting for insolvency practitioners (administrators and liquidators), providing insolvency support as well as supporting companies on their numerous insolvency obligations. We advise all insolvency stakeholders on their legal rights and obligations.
