The wine industry is an ever-changing landscape. Like all primary producers, you’re equally beholden to both market forces and nature. Yet, within this fluid environment, solid legal ground can be found; a reliable foundation that, when considered in light of relevant experience, can facilitate the transformation of your hard work and passion into commercial success.

Our experienced team of wine lawyers can provide that foundation. We have accumulated considerable expertise in dealing with wine industry legal matters and have advised many of the leading names in Australian wine – including some of the most prominent wineries in South Australia – across all areas of business.

We assist all types of businesses operating in the wine industry, including winemakers, grape growers, wine merchants and suppliers to the industry in relation to commercial transactions, liquor licensing, branding and label compliance, intellectual property, dispute resolution, taxation, business structuring, securities and workplace issues.

Our commitment to the sector is also evidenced by our active involvement in industry events and organisations. We are proud sponsors and members of Wine Industry Suppliers Australia (WISA), Winestate’s Australian & New Zealand Wine of the Year Awards and the Adelaide Review’s Hot 100 SA Wines.

Key Services

What Clients Say

Recently, Brett Thorneycroft and his M&A team assisted us with securing a large project involving the acquisition of multiple assets, transfer of staff and ongoing management and licencing agreements. AV&M’s client was a large international investment fund, and the commercial documentation and interactions with the various parties involved with the project were complex. This project involved work that was fast-paced, complex and technical. From the outset, Brett and his team provided exceptional service and worked tirelessly to meet tight deadlines and changing circumstances. This often involved late nights and weekend work, all of which was completed efficiently and effectively. Brett’s skills, experience and counsel were of great value and with the support from his team, assisted us in successfully completing the transaction. AV&M has worked with the DW Fox Tucker team for many years on a range of matters including commercial, tax, property, employment, workers compensation and IP and we would have no hesitation in recommending DW Fox Tucker to anyone looking for trusted legal advisors.
