With many years of experience across industries and sectors, we provide high quality advice in this specialised area of law. We ensure no one unfairly or illegally reaps the benefits of your hard-won trademarks, copyrights and unique business concepts.

A specialist business lawyer for property guidanceThere are many conveyancing lawyers in Brisbane, but if you are looking for high level support and advice across business investments, you need a commercial lawyer with ‘real world’ commercial experience. 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 and commercial drivers. While property law is one of the core areas of expertise for our practice, we can also link you into professional guidance across franchising law, estate planning and taxation advice to ensure your property investments are just one of many effective components of your future success.
Is franchising your next big thing?In addition to providing property law services, Rouse Lawyers is a proud member of the Franchise Council of Australia. This means we can provide a unique process for guidance around franchising leases. This includes:
- A comprehensive review of the lease.
- Preparation of a written Summary Report, which is a 6-8 page document that:
- Outlines, in plain English, the key terms of the lease, your rights and obligations and other legal matters that are important to consider;
- provides high level advice regarding leasing in general and the specific legislations that apply; and
- sets out our recommended changes.
- Meet with you to discuss our review and advice. We prefer a face to face meeting but offer alternative options such as teleconference.
- Negotiate with the landlord’s solicitor with respect to our suggested changes, and assist with execution.
