Street-smart, Business-Savvy Commercial Lawyers

There are plenty of commercial law firms in Brisbane but they are far from equal.

At Rouse Lawyers, we don’t just offer a legal service – we work in partnership with you to gain a deep understanding of your goals. Our role is to get you the best possible deal for your individual business setting to give your business the edge.

Unlimited Upside and Fee Certainty = Good Value Commercial Law

Rouse Lawyers are the preferred business lawyers for some of Brisbane’s most prestigious enterprises and high-net-worth entrepreneurs.

Our clients network includes national and global enterprises. With a finger on the pulse of technology, we bring our expertise to you wherever you do business.

We couldn’t be in that position without offering outstanding ROI alongside a ‘no surprises’ fee policy that gives business owners and decision-makers certainty.

No two businesses are the same, no two transactions are the same. That’s what causes wild fluctuations in the legal fees endured by many companies as they push into new opportunities.

Not here at Rouse lawyers — we offer a number of engagement models to suit different business structures and transaction frameworks. They all have one thing in common: whether we are charging a fixed fee or a case-based estimate, you can be sure that you will always have cost certainty.

Peace of Mind

There’s not a lot of genuine ‘peace of mind’ in business. The stakes can be high, the budget can be tight, and the stakeholders can be challenging.

As experienced commercial lawyers, we bring you proven results, a wealth of ‘real world’ business experience, sophisticated risk mitigation and cost certainty. It’s as close as your average commercial risk taker will come to a sense of peace.

We work with you to make every deal as smooth as possible aiming for outcomes that ensure you get to enjoy the fruits of your labour.

Client Reviews

“We highly recommend Rouse Lawyers.

Rouse Lawyers acted for us in the sale of our software business, Precision Mining, to Micromine, a global mining software company. It was a substantial transaction and one in which we (the founding owners) relied on the Rouse M&A team to guide us through the process. We were very impressed with their efforts and tenacity in what was a complex and extensive negotiation process. We highly recommend Rouse Lawyers not only for their M&A expertise but also generally for growing SME’s in the technology space.”

“It’s hard to find good lawyer that understands a “tech” business – Rouse Lawyers are that firm…

“A Big Thank You” to Matthew & the Team at Rouse Lawyers – have assisted me & my business in so many different legal items – from wills to buying property/structuring our business/trademarks/negotiating large deals/spam/privacy issues/lease on our 4 different offices… It’s hard to find good lawyer that understands a “tech” business – Rouse Lawyers are that firm… so skilled in many areas.”

“We have relied on good advice from Rouse Lawyers.

We believe software is driving the world forward. Disruption is happening in every industry and it is our clients who are proactively integrating software into their businesses, to set a whole new standard around the way business is done. We are a business that is growing rapidly and know the importance of good legal advice, which is why we have relied on Rouse Lawyers. Focusing on creating digital platforms on which our clients can innovate to ensure they are the ones modernising, is what gets us out of bed in the mornings.”

“I would recommend Rouse Lawyers for any business.

Young Guns has engaged Rouse Lawyers for all legal requirement/advice for the past 10 years. They have been on our business journey from 10 employees to 450 employees. Matt and Peter have always showed a personal interest in our business success and therefore made many recommendations for short term and long term strategies. I would be happy to recommend Rouse Lawyers for any business looking for a legal partner who they can trust and can provide ongoing, up to date advice.”

“Their knowledge of franchising is comprehensive

I have tried several of the larger law firms at the big end of town but found their services to be quite bland and predictable. Rouse Lawyers’s style of operation suits me much better, their knowledge of franchising is comprehensive, and just as importantly, their thinking is distinctly street wise and entrepreneurial.”
