COVID-19: Civic Legal Response

Corporate and Commercial

At Civic Legal, we know that the smooth running of a business requires solid legal foundations to be in place.

As a full-service commercial law firm, our lawyers have experience assisting in a wide variety of industries, including mining services, transport services, property development, strata titles management, insurance companies and the building and construction industries.  We also assist professional service providers such as accountants and insolvency practitioners.

We are able to assist with a variety of corporate transactions such as mergers and acquisitions of businesses, company incorporations and due diligence projects. We draft or review corporate documentation such as shareholder agreements, employment agreements, loan agreements, joint venture agreements and corporate finance documentation such as debentures, convertible notes, guarantees and other types of loan finance securitisation.

We are also able to assist with corporate, commercial and insolvency-related litigation.

We appear in all of the Courts in Western Australia as well as the State Administrative Tribunal. Our team was involved in one of the largest trials in the Supreme Court of Western Australia in recent years.

Private Clients

Our lawyers advise on both simple and complex family arrangements. This sometimes includes family businesses with succession planning considerations. When it comes to complex family arrangements which involve overseas assets, Civic Legal can call on its associates in the global Ally Law network of law firms.

We take time to understand and clarify your wishes in relation to your estate, trusts, guardians for any minor children, and enduring powers of attorney. We put in place the right documents and processes to help ensure that your wishes are dutifully carried out.

In the event that a will or probate is to be challenged, our firm can represent you in negotiations with other family members. If those negotiations break down, then our litigation lawyers can represent you in Court.


“We have been using Civic Legal on quite a few occasions and have always found them to be very thorough and highly professional in handling our cases. Anthony and his staff work very diligently to obtain the best possible outcome, and the advice received always paid off. Civic Legal is well regarded by our company and always highly recommended. Thank you so much.”
