Corporate law is a detailed and intricate framework of prohibitions and obligations. At Diamond Conway, we advise clients on all aspects of corporate law and governance.
Our lawyers invest significant time in ensuring that advice and documents are tailored to client’s needs. This reduces the risk of contract disputes or regulatory breaches and allows directors of companies to do what they do best – transact business and grow returns to stakeholders.

The level of regulation in Australia on businesses of all types continues to tighten. Our team of corporate and commercial lawyers assist our clients to navigate through the complex corporate regulatory system. Clients benefit from plain-English legal advice which is business focussed.
Our clients do not receive academic advice which is of little commercial value. Instead, we know your business and offer legal options which can be deployed to resolve issues which confront a business.
We advise shareholders, directors, employees, creditors and other stakeholders to position our clients to worry less about legal and regulatory compliance, and focus more on getting business done.
Our lawyers have experience in orchestrating and concluding mergers, acquisitions and strategic capital raisings on small, medium and large scales.
Our clients engage our lawyers because of their meticulous attention to detail for due diligence matters, plain-English legal reports and the timely creation, negotiation and turnaround of transaction documents.
Our experience also extends to business sales and purchases and strategic capital raisings (including public offers, entitlement offers and top-up offers).
Our firm has extensive experience in advising and representing both corporations and individuals with respect to competition and consumer law. This includes anti-competitive conduct, misuse of market power, price fixing, exclusive dealings and refusals to supply, misleading and deceptive conduct and unconscionable conduct (amongst others).
We advise our clients on company structuring and re-structuring transactions. The structure of a business carries long term tax, liability and finance implications. We advise on liability and revenue issues and guide business owners and entrepreneurs through structuring options that satisfies their objectives.
Many of our clients use our lawyers to provide ongoing corporate governance advice. We draft company constitutions, shareholders agreements, minutes of meetings and advise on compliance requirements. Our lawyers have become a trusted resource for company boards who seek ongoing advice on management and compliance issues.
It is imperative that businesses have plans, policies and systems in place to effectively manage and govern relationships with employees, contractors and unions.
We promote a proactive approach to addressing industrial relationships, with the aim of managing or avoiding disputes through appropriate employment structures and policies.
Where disputes arise, we understand our clients need to resolve them in a cost-effective and timely manner in order to minimise disruption to business. We often represent corporate employers in Fair Work Australia or in relation to Fair Work Ombudsman investigations.
