The team at wilson/ryan/grose are well equipped to provide advice to corporations, individual directors and shareholders about what responsibilities and liabilities are relevant to them. We take the time to get to know your business and can then give you the best possible advice in relation to any risks and potential exposure you are susceptible to and can then steer you in the right direction to safeguard your business.
We provide advice to boards, corporations and individual directors as well as shareholders upon the legislative duties, risks, responsibilities and liabilities relevant to them. Good corporate governance, probity and risk management must be satisfactorily addressed to give directors, officers, corporations and shareholders peace of mind. By working with our clients closely, we develop an understanding of their business, risks and potential exposures and from that are able to develop with our clients strategies, procedures and frameworks within which to monitor and manage these matters. Advice given will often cross over with other teams including business structuring, intellectual property, employment/industrial relations, tax and superannuation as well as insolvency and restructuring from time to time.
