Commercial

This large category spans such areas as general corporate and contractual advice, large mergers and acquisitions, tax advice, non-litigious employment law advice and sales of businesses, both large and small.

Family law clients can be preoccupied and in emotional distress. They require particular care for the best outcome and to avoid claims.

Personal & Succession law

Risk management advice for legal practitioners about will making, POA, beneficiaries, estate administration and more.

Securities

Securities reform has significantly changed the way personal property is protected in Australia. This section contains information to assist practitioners in understanding the changes and avoiding the traps in the new requirements.

Litigation

Clients seek out litigation lawyers when something has gone wrong and as litigation is an unfamiliar environment for many litigants, managing their expectations during the litigation process is key to containing risks in this area.

Practice Management

LPLC sees that better practice management lessens the risk of claims. Each person in every function of a legal practice has a role to play in managing risk.
