"I would recommend Rouse Lawyers for any business"
“Young Guns has engaged Rouse Lawyer 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.”
"Robert was outstanding"
Robert was outstanding. He was pro-active with his views and was very forthcoming with the approaches that should be taken and possible ramifications. He kept us informed all the way, was very definitive on things and just handled every little bump and left field issue along the way in his stride. The way he communicated with the Australian Taxation Office was exceptional.
"We have been delighted with the results"
“As a civil contractor in this environment, we need someone we can rely upon when it comes to large payment claims and recovery. Rouse Lawyers has assisted us in a number of recovery matters including Eloise’s fantastic efforts recently with recovery from Walton Constructions. We have been delighted with the results.”
"The team at Rouse Lawyers has been fantastic."
The team at Rouse Lawyers has been fantastic. As a new technology startup, we had some unique requirements around licensing and partner agreements, trademarking as well as off-shore contractor agreements. Matthew and Patrick have been great to deal with – not only from an advice perspective but also delivering these agreements in a timely manner. Dealing with Rouse Lawyers has allowed us to concentrate on our business knowing the legal side is in good hands.
