In our association of more than 15 years your advice has saved me more than once . I am grateful for your assistance with the sale of the shares in my Company to Oakley Inc. I know that transacting with a publicly listed company can be challenging, I also appreciate your advice in many smaller but equally frustrating matters that have come up from time to time. Your professional approach is a true asset to my past and future business requirements.
On a recent purchase of a competitors business we chose to use Riba Business Lawyers due to their professionalism and knowledge in the area of Commercial law. I have been so impressed with every dealing we have had with Joe and his team, not only in Commercial Law but also Estate Planning, that I now refer my clients to Riba Business Lawyers.
Our business now turns over nearly 10 million dollars a year. The rapid expansion of our operation in Brisbane and on the Sunshine Coast has, in recent years, necessitated our search for a legal team with the relevant commercial expertise and knowledge to keep pace with this rate of growth. We are very pleased to have worked with you on this project. Your caring assistance with the transaction itself and our corporate succession planning was very welcome. Thank you for your advice. We look forward to doing business with you again.
With the legal guidance of Joe Riba and his franchising team I was able to expand my national franchise system within every state in Australia. As the Chief Executive Officer and one of the primary shareholders in a multimillion dollar private enterprise such as Bright Eyes I found Joe’s help invaluable. Joe’s ability to read between the lines, focus on solutions and circumnavigate potentially damaging situations was one of the most important elements in the success of my company.
When my business was bought out by a publicly listed competitor, I chose Riba Business Lawyers to assist me with the transaction. With the help of Joe and his team we were able to structure this multimillion dollar transaction to our advantage notwithstanding that we were dealing with a much larger public entity. Joe anticipated potential problems early which I believe saved me expense. I am now one of the directors and controllers of Medimobile Pty Ltd which in 2010 made the BRW fast 100. Medimobile Pty Ltd are grateful to Riba Business Lawyers for their legal expertise.
When I sold my business in 2012 I did not know that anything was wrong until the settlement date arrived and the buyer refused to settle. I had no idea what to do. I was heavily reliant on my solicitors. Riba Business Lawyers helped me every step of the way and reassured me when I did not understand the court process. With their help I was able to defend a counter claim and successfully recover the deposit. I especially appreciate Joe’s honesty and patience in dealing with my many, many questions.

Business people often have complex structures including companies and trusts. These structures must be carefully considered when planning an estate and drafting a will. Complex structures that may have been very tax effective at one time, need special consideration when planning an estate. As society has changed families arrangements have also become more complicated. Achieving a fair outcome requires careful thought.
Joint wills start at $250 each. Call us today to discuss your needs. Phone 54791488

Our lawyers have been drafting and reviewing franchise agreement for 20 years. Franchising is a complex area of law.
Successful franchising always starts with sound expert advice. Both franchisees and franchisors should be very wary of anyone providing advice in this area that does not have appropriate experience.
Careful planning over an extended period should occur before any investment in the franchising process is made.
Queensland landlords do not use a standard form lease. Each Queensland Law Firm and therefore each landlord is likely to use a lease that is unique. Of course there are common elements to most leases.
We ensure that a qualified lawyer always reads the whole lease before providing advice to a tenant. Our fees to review leases are fixed at $1500 plus GST
When acting for a Landlord our aim is to ensure that the lease is part of a fair and mutually beneficial arrangement for Landlord and business owner.
We offer landlords fixed fees when preparing leases.
