Commercial Law Byron Bay

At Byron Legal, we provide affordable, practical and efficient solutions to help you organise your business operations at minimal complexity and cost. Whether you are launching a new venture, expanding your current business, or buying/selling an existing one, we understand that your time should be focused on running your business.

Our broad knowledge and experience in business transactions enables us to offer you meaningful and useful advice and to assist in navigating the many complex areas associated with business structures.

As long-term residents of the Far North Coast, we have accumulated years of experience working with local lessors/lessees, real estate agents and business owners. 

If you are selling or purchasing a business through the sale or purchase of assets, shares or a combination of both, our experienced team can advise and guide you through the entire process including due diligence and negotiations through to completion.

We have extensive experience in handling business conveyancing across various sizes and industries and appreciate that purchasing or selling a business can be a life-changing event.

Following an in-depth discussion either over the phone or at a face-to-face meeting, we will ensure we have all the necessary information from you to customise or review the contract of sale based on your unique circumstances. With our legal expertise, we will safeguard your rights and ensure accurate disclosures are made. 

We can assist you with:

  • preparing or reviewing a contract for the sale of business along with its related assets and leases;
  • compiling or requesting necessary documentation for due diligence purposes;
  • negotiating the terms of the sale of business contract;
  • attending to exchange of the sale of business contracts; 
  • completing settlement including the transfer of any assets, leases and/or registered business names.


Whether you are a landlord or a tenant, receiving proper advice on your rights and obligations in a retail or commercial lease prior to signing can ensure a smooth tenancy arrangement, as opposed to one that results in future problems and disputes. All leasing transactions must be forward-thinking as there can be serious legal and financial consequences to both landlords and tenants if the terms of a lease are breached.

At Byron Legal, we possess extensive experience with commercial and retail leases which ensures that our advice to you is comprehensive, practical and tailored specifically to your premises and situation.

We can assist you through all of the leasing process including drafting or reviewing lease documentation, negotiating and drafting any necessary amendments, as well as facilitating lease execution and registration with NSW Land Registry Services.
