We are also able to prepare the relevant documents required for all types of commercial transactions, including share sale documentation, appointment and resignation of directors, board minutes.

We can liaise with any relevant government regulatory body to ensure you have “ticked” all the relevant boxes with regards to your statutory requirements when buying or selling a business.

OpusRed has the negotiation skills to guide you through your dealings with vendors or purchasers, suppliers, customers, secured lenders and government regulatory bodies so that your transaction goes through as soon as possible.

If you are purchasing assets from a receiver, liquidator or administrator, OpusRed’s vast insolvency experience will assist you to obtain the best price for those assets due to our knowledge of the requirements of insolvency practitioners who have been appointed to the vendor company and its assets.

If you intend to start up a business, OpusRed can advise you on the differences between trading as a sole trader or as a company and prepare all the relevant documentation for a fixed fee.

OpusRed can also guide you through the process of registering business names, companies and trademarks both in Australia and internationally.

We understand that, when embarking on either a purchase or a sale transaction, legal costs are an essential consideration in negotiations. We are therefore flexible with our fee structure and are happy to negotiate a fixed-fee arrangement with you that suits your needs. If circumstances are such that you require a fee estimate, we are committed to never exceeding a fee estimate without first obtaining your written permission.

Please contact us if you would like to have a fee-free, no-obligation discussion regarding your requirements.
