Our Services

Corporate & Commercial Law

We specialise in providing a full suite of legal services to small and medium size businesses. Our areas of expertise include capital and debt financing, business sale and purchases, franchises, company restructures and shareholder agreements.

Residential Conveyancing

Buying and/or selling a property is an exciting time. However, the various property purchase requirements, conditions, and jargon can be quite daunting. We’re here to ensure that whether you’re purchasing or selling, the process is smooth, exiting, and beneficial to you.

Commercial Conveyancing

Leasing a commercial property is often the largest fixed cost for your business. It’s a complex process and it’s important it’s done right to protect against unforeseen costs. Wakefields ensures that leasing arrangements are fair and consistent to attract the highest calibre tenants.

Wills

Your will is the most important legal document that you will ever sign. This one document ensures that your assets and the people and things you love are taken care of after you’re gone. Wills provide guidance at times when your family needs it the most.

Family Trusts

Family trusts are extremely popular tools for protecting your assets both during your lifetime and after. This trust can be tailored to your family’s needs and goals, they are flexible and an enduring structure to organise and manage succession planning affairs.

Wealth Protection

You’re always prepared for the expected, but what about the unexpected? While none of us can predict the future, our wealth protection team can help you be ready for the unforeseen (and often unfortunate) events that occur throughout your life.
