This is a wide area of the law and includes restructuring a business or a transaction to obtain the commercial and taxation outcomes for a client. There is much more involved than simply preparing a sale document and quite often this firm is called in by other accounting and legal firms to give advice on the best way to structure or restructure a business or asset sale to achieve a clients objectives and to avoid unnecessary taxation or stamp duty impositions on the basis that we can add considerable value in this area.
We also provide specialised advice on business restructures, the application of rollover reliefs, and the implementation of shareholders and buy/sell agreements. If you or your client is looking to establish or restructure a business in a manner that provides both commercial flexibility, is tax efficient, and accommodates for future changes in ownership, we can assist you.
Peter is not only an incredibly experienced lawyer, he has provided invaluable advice and guidance on a number of general strategic business decisions. Peter has always been extremely very easy to contact and deal with and is a genuine person who exercises high levels of personal and business integrity.
Peter is a very pragmatic lawyer who I would say was a ‘go to’ person for tax and corporate tax issues. One of the reasons he is a ‘go to’ person is that he is interested in people / generous with his time.
Referred by our accountant, Peter handled complex restructuring issues within our family group of entities. His advice was professional, practical and easy to understand. After promptly dealing with this matter we further sought his advice on wills, trusts and company constitution amendments. I would have no hesitation in recommending Peter to any business large or small.
I have worked with Peter Gell since 2008, where he has provided legal services and advice across areas relating to companies, trusts, superannuation, estate planning and taxation. Peter’s level of knowledge has been outstanding, however the bonus has been his pragmatic approach and his ability to explain complex matters in simple, down-to-earth, language. Peter has been a pleasure to work with.
