Commercial Law

Your business should have access to quality legal services

What is Commercial Law?

Commercial law was referred to ‘trade law’ that applies to the rights, relations, and conduct of persons and businesses engaged in commerce, merchandising, trade, and sales. It is often considered to be a branch of civil law and deals with issues of both private law and public law.


What’s different at Digital Age Lawyers?

With the digital revolution at full tilt, Digital Age Lawyers has continued to niche and grow our business law practice so that we continue to offer interconnected, local and global solutions to our clients. These solutions address the challenges & opportunities in the face of constant change – giving your business the distinct advantage of agility.

First thing you will notice is the only hardcopy we generate is that required to be signed and retained by law.  The second thing you will notice, is that your journey is on communications media, be it by phone, Skype, Facebook call – this saves you travel time and money! We do meet face to face to discuss complex issues and sign documents but we are always eliminating the unnecessary face to face to your comfort level. Thirdly, we are always looking for settlement options on your matter versus heading to a courtroom as your day in court is a costly one. Fourthly, our legal advice is forward-looking, creative and tailored to your business.

Finally, we take you on a journey that you won’t get at too many other commercial law firms – why don’t you come see for yourself.

Legal Strategy Session

Often at Digital Age Lawyers we start your journey with Legal Strategy Session which delivers you an informed, effective and timely decision-making process enabling you to grasp opportunities that present whilst assessing any associated risks.  It is also an opportunity to assess that we can effectively work together and if we cannot we will refer you to a specialist and provide the strategy.

Choose your Service Level for Contracts/Agreements

We offer your business three types of service levels to prepare your contracts and agreements following a Legal Strategy Session:

Self Service

Where you complete your documents without input from us.

Full Service

Where we do it all for you. Contact us to get started.

During your Legal Strategy Session we will provide you with what is available in each option and the price for that service.

What Our Clients Say

I just want to thankyou for everything you’ve done, I appreciate your patience & understanding. Please pass my thanks along to Katherine as well.

Elizabeth M

I would like to thank Katherine Hawes and the team for the outstanding work they have dealt with this year. I recently had a social media bullying case and with knowledge of the team it was dealt with. Digital Age Lawyers "cares" for their clients.

I highly recommend Digital Age Lawyers for any law case.

Thank you so much Katherine Hawes and the team.

Nicole C

On behalf of the bentART Committee I would like to say a huge thank you for your generous sponsorship of bentART 2023. The 18th exhibition was outstanding in every way. Over 100 artworks were displayed, with thirty percent of artists new to bentART. Almost a third of the artworks sold. A total of 785 visitors came through the gallery between Friday night and Monday afternoon (some were repeat visitors) and the feedback about the exhibition was very positive.

I have seen Katherine speak and have been involved with her assisting a business who was being bullied on-line. She acted immediately and the owners were grateful and relieved. A First Class down-to-earth solicitor who genuinely cares.

Debra W

Had a fabulous meeting with a lawyer yesterday! Yes, a LAWYER!! Tears of laughter whilst discussing some pretty important but boring stuff. Law needn’t be scary, boring or confusing if you have the right lawyer. Thank you Katherine Hawes. I’m looking forward to working with you.

Lisa G

Thank you for your support! We are so excited looking forward to working on our next investment with you all.

Great teamwork!
