Antunes Lawyer’s success stems from clients receiving the ‘best advice’ not only from a legal point of view but also from a commercial, business and personal relationships point of view. The firm takes a ‘holistic’ approach to client matters to enable clients to make the right decisions based on considered advice and vast commercial experience and knowledge.
The firm has achieved outstanding results in all areas of work and dealing with various parties including the Tax Office, the Office of State Revenue, Government Departments, ASIC and other lawyers. The firm has a long history of negotiating settlements of disputes with life changing outcomes for clients, achieving significant reductions in tax and achieving desired results for clients who have breached the laws or for negotiating settlements between business partners and family members.
We have identified defects in ‘standardised’ documents such as trusts deeds, superannuation deeds and company constitutions hence we draft our own documents in plain English. This enables us to individualise and personalise documents to address specific client needs. Many standard documents actually do not work when put to the test when things go wrong. (eg Shareholders agreements). Our documents provide solutions to all contingencies without the need for litigation, saving businesses and livelihoods.
The firm’s core values are:
- Care for our clients and their matters
- Courage to robustly advocate for our clients and be truthful to our clients
- Knowing the law and how to best use it for the benefit of our clients, knowing how our clients feel and knowing what is best in our client’s circumstances
We hold and practise these values on a daily basis with proud commitment and passion.
