You’re now closely connected with Rouse Lawyers – a law firm that offers streetwise, pragmatic legal and commercial advice to enable business growth without the bloated overheads, bureaucracy or old-school thinking of traditional law firms.
Some Lawyers Block Your Best Ideas. We Enable Them.
Our clients tend to be full of energy, enthusiasm and ideas. They know only
one direction – forward. That’s what entrepreneurial spirit is all about.
At Rouse Lawyers, we get that. We know our team is unrivaled for its blend of streetwise legal expertise and business intuition.
We are commercial lawyers in business, for business.
At Rouse Lawyers, we embrace challenge and change and we will never be
fazed by a lack of legal precedence. Yes, we will point out potential pitfalls and we may even play devil’s advocate. That’s all part of providing considered, pragmatic legal and commercial advice.
Our difference is we will always look for solutions to enable you achieve your unique commercial goals rather than find reasons to grind you to a halt.
We’ve got your back.
Rouse Lawyers maintains an edge in the market with a core group of commercial lawyers and a flexible network of external legal specialists based throughout Australia, New Zealand, South-East Asia, North America, Europe and the UK.
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’ style of operation suits me much better, their knowledge of franchising is comprehensive, and just as importantly, their thinking is distinctly streetwise and entrepreneurial.Ross Clayton, The Vast Interior, Head Franchisor
We Help You Navigate Change, Growth and Risk from the Front Foot
Great businesses don’t accept ‘static’. What good ever came of standing still,
our clients question. And we understand. Change is good and so is growth.
Granted, they may come with risks but when you work with Rouse Lawyers, we minimise the risks through proactive – some might say, visionary – planning.
We do this by investing our time in getting to know your business intimately up front.
From that, we can foresee what may be ahead. Will expansion require more
premises? How do your employment practices stack up? Are you guarding
your intellectual property? Are the family assets protected?
At Rouse Lawyers, we enable you to steer your course with assured confidence. We’ll look out for you while you keep moving forward.
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.Peter Biondic, Universal Civil Contacting
Fee Certainty and Genuine Value Means Our Clients Don’t Hesitate to Pick Up the Phone
You’ve heard the stories about calling a lawyer for advice and being charged from the moment they say ‘hello’. Well, that’s not us. Seriously.
We want you to call us to share your ‘YES! ‘moments—and the ‘OMG what now?’ frustrations. We’re here to be your sounding board too. We’ll listen and think … and the clock won’t be running. We’re all yours.
How do we do this? Rouse Lawyers was one of the first in commercial law to adopt fixed fee and price certainty for our services. We base our fees on
service and outcomes.
We believe value doesn’t end with our direct relationship. If we think you could benefit from another professional, we’ll advise you. If we believe you could benefit one of our clients, we’ll refer.
And the final kicker: we have the depth of knowledge and expertise of the big firms without the inner CBD overheads or river views.
Camfil Farr is a multinational organisation and we use lawyers across the world. Rouse Lawyers was chosen as an alternative to the top tier, and has acted for us in a number of matters concerning our Australian operations. We have found their strategic advice and alternate approaches to the law to be highly valuable and unique. We highly recommend Rouse Lawyers.Bruce Landford, Camfil Farr, International Clean Air Solutions
