Confidentiality agreements and Sale of Businesses in Western Australia

We regularly provide advice on the best use of confidentiality agreements between companies and their employees in order to protect confidential information, client lists and trade secrets as well as between businesses and prospective purchasers of businesses in Western Australia.

We prepare contracts for the sale of businesses of all sizes and advise clients on draft contracts they have received.  We prepare and advise on confidentiality agreements relating to a tender or sale process to safeguard property and agreements for agent and employees of a business.

We can also provide Deeds of Settlement when disputes have been resolved with confidentiality clauses.  For more information see Deeds of Settlement.

Our practice is located outside of the Perth CBD and because of this our fixed prices for confidentiality agreements are 20% lower than the standard rates charged by most Perth law firms.  Our rates are extremely competitive compared to the rates charged by other commercial law firms.
