Mellor Olsson is a full service commercial law firm with an extensive client base and referral network for all aspects of commercial law. We have an enviable reputation across the spectrum of commercial and business transactions and advisory services.

Our commercial lawyers give advice on and prepare commercial contracts and service agreements such as management agreements for Council or Government owned infrastructure, including community centres and sporting clubs, tourist parks, golf courses, waste transfer stations and other commercial and community based assets and infrastructure.

We provide taxation and superannuation advice on the implications of commercial agreements, including under the Superannuation Guarantee (Administration) Act 1992.

We advise on various project development, procurement and tender processes, probity and documentation issues. This includes providing advice on competition law under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) and Competition Principles Agreement.

We have experience advising Councils on specific Local Government Act 1999 (SA) provisions relating to large scale projects and the associated prudential requirements, as well as advice on the role, functions and principals to be observed by a Council under the Local Government Act.

We also have experience in a range of other areas including advice in relation to the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and intellectual property matters. These are areas dealt with on a daily basis by our commercial team.

We regularly present to organisations on procurement, contract and commercial matters which are of relevance to the Government sector.
