Chemistry

We marry commercial experience with intellectual rigour and technical expertise and our results are always practical and efficient.

 

The Entire Chessboard

Our lawyers are subject area specialists. We see the entire chessboard because we are adept in every aspect of each subject.

 

Expertise First

Being subject area specialists means we know more than just the law about that subject.

About Us

Acton Law is a boutique law firm specializing in corporate and commercial law. We are set apart from other firms because of our unique approach to legal practice and our distinct expertise. Three aspects to our approach differentiate us from other firms. We deliver legal services: with a commercial focus on the client’s needs; built upon sound technical ability; and executed efficiently.

Our Approach

Commercial Focus: We put our clients’ needs centre stage and know that practical commercial solutions lie at the heart of those needs. We are able to understand and anticipate their individual legal needs because we’ve been investors and entrepreneurs; company directors and business managers; business owners and employers.

Dexterity: Our lawyers are subject area specialists with the dexterity to receive instructions on any matters relating to corporate and commercial law.

Efficiency: This versatility enables us to field fewer people for transactions and we are always economical about time and cost because we are naturally lean.

Our Expertise

Our clients are involved in multifaceted businesses and they deserve legal advisors who consider the entire chessboard; and not just individual chess pieces. Our lawyers know the commercial aspects of our clients’ businesses. We apply well tested technical rigour to our broad commercial experience and offer tailored solutions.

By thoroughly assessing the risks and commercial issues involved, we are able to provide legal and strategic commercial advice. In turn, the quality of our advice enables our clients to set up their chess pieces and see the chessboard from opening move to end game.
