I have been using Wisam and his team for a number of years. When it comes to off the plan purchases, I wouldn't look anywhere else! Wisam's attention to detail is second to none. He has assisted many of my clients with their property purchases, and in some cases has saved them thousands picking up errors in contracts that other solicitor's hadn't. I would highly recommend Wisam and his team to anyone seeking to purchase or sell a property. Thank you Wisam.

  • Interpreting the obligations of parties pursuant to leases or licences
  • Enforcing the provisions of a lease or licence

Contracts & Business Documents

Contract reviews

We offer fixed price contract review services to enable you to understand any legal risks of a contract before you enter into it, whether it is an employment contract, franchise agreement, licence agreement, lease, construction contract or terms of trade.


Contract preparation

Our team of experienced business lawyers Parramatta are experienced in drafting simple and complex contracts, including:


  • Confidentiality agreements – sometimes incorporating exclusive dealing periods
  • Website and application terms and conditions
  • Service and supply agreements
  • Business terms and conditions and credit applications
  • Franchise agreements
  • Consultancy agreements
  • Building contracts and subcontracts
  • Joint venture agreements in relation to business arrangements and property dealings
  • Intellectual property licensing agreements
  • Hire contracts
  • IT contracts
  • Distributorship agreements
  • Haulage contracts.


Contract Advice and Disputes

While some business engagements and relationships can start out well, issues often arise. Our business lawyers Parramatta can provide pragmatic and prompt advice so that you know where you stand on the issue.


We can also support you from behind the scenes by helping draft your responses so that the other party need not know that you are receiving legal advice.


If the issue needs to be escalated, we are experienced in alternative dispute resolution forums including informal settlement negotiations, mediations, conciliation and arbitration and finally formal litigation. As we specialise in resolving disputes without formal litigation, this means that the vast majority of contract disputes we have handled have not resulted in litigation.


The use of alternative dispute resolution methods enables us to reach suitable outcomes without the added expense and stress that may otherwise be incurred.


While we maintain a focus on dispute resolution, our business lawyers Parramatta are also experienced in managing minor and major litigation matters in the NCAT, Local Court, District Court and Supreme Court.


Not-for-Profit and Charity Law

We work with many local social enterprises, disability charities, health care charities, aged care services, education providers and schools, medical research charities, registered clubs and religious organisations to guide them through the tricky business logistics of starting and running a charity or not-for-profit organisation.

Franchise Lawyers

Franchising is a complicated process which involves a person (the franchisor) agreeing to allow another person (franchisee) to operate an existing business system that is controlled by the franchisor, in return for payment of a fee by the franchisee. The business must be operating and associated with a trademark or symbol.


The franchisor provides ongoing guidance, systems and assistance. In return, a payment of periodic fees by the franchisee is required. Our experience in acting for both franchisors and franchisees means that you receive the benefit of our perspectives on both sides of the franchise relationship to set you on solid footing during the relationship.


Services for Franchisors

We work with franchisor clients to establish suites of template franchise disclosure documents and franchising agreements across a range of industries.


We are then able to advise as required as new franchisees are found, or there are legislation changes which impact the terms or disclosure obligations.


Often, issues will arise in the course of the franchise relationship, and we can assist franchisors with:


  • Enforcing breaches of the franchise agreement by the franchisee, including acting in court proceedings
  • Assisting with dispute resolution and mediation to resolve disputes between the parties
  • Defending claims of unconscionable conduct or other breaches of the Franchising Code of Conduct
  • Dealing with requests for assignment by the franchisee and documenting the assignment
  • Advising on rights following termination.



Services for franchisees

Buying a franchise is different from buying a stand-alone business. You will be entering into a long term agreement with a franchisor to operate a developed process of doing business.


Unlike a stand-alone business, you do not have complete freedom over how the business is operated or sold. You may be left with nothing at the end of the franchise term.


This is the reason it is important that you are clear about the terms of the franchise agreement, and your rights and obligations under the agreement. We can assist franchisees in understanding and negotiating the terms of the franchise agreement, as well as all other legal aspects of the purchase such as business structuring and finance.


Shareholder & Partnership Lawyers

Establishing a business with someone else can often come turn sour due to your vision for the business no longer aligning with them.


We can guide and manage your business relationship from the establishment of your business with structuring advice, including:


  • Drafting shareholder or partnership agreements
  • Preparing buy/sell agreements, allowing insurance to fund unplanned exits due to death or total and permanent disability
  • Shareholder and partnership disputes can be like marriage breakdowns – very personal and very stressful, especially when the shareholders are still trying to operate the business.

When the dispute arises, Optimum Lawyers Parramatta can assist you in negotiating a mutually agreeable outcome, whether through informal settlement conference or through formal alternative dispute resolution processes such as mediation.


If these measures fail to success, Optimum Lawyers are experienced in formal litigation through the Supreme Court and can guide you through the process of litigation, including:


  • Providing honest and pragmatic advice
  • Managing the conduct of your litigation matter
  • Negotiating settlement or appearing on your behalf in Court.
