Timing is everything in property transactions. Opportunities rarely last, and delays can mean the difference between winning and losing the deal. Our property lawyers regularly advise on transactions ranging in value from the small and simple to the large and complex, and have extensive experience in all facets of property development, leasing, buying and selling deals. 

We advise developers, investors, owners, landlords, tenants and property managers on all aspects of property law, including contract formation, due diligence, structuring, taxation, leasing, acquisition, finance, development and disposal of property assets. 

If property disputes occur, our litigation, arbitration and mediation experience allows us to guide you to the best possible commercial outcome. Our capability also extends to the provision of full residential and commercial conveyancing services.

This was very important to our business. On that basis, our relationship has evolved over the years, and we now consider William and the team at DW Fox Tucker Lawyers to be our trusted advisors – using them for commercial, tax, property, employment and workers compensation advice.
