We provide a range of proactive and commercially driven business legal advice services to assist compliance officers, procurement officers and business managers in all facets of legal business risk.
We mitigate your risk, reduce your time spend on contract
drafting and negotiations, and we equip you with the
knowledge you need to properly manage your contracts.
We provide business legal advice on the common traps to avoid in the area of procurement, and specialise in finding ways to reduce the cost and time involved in the contracting process.
Our goal is to support you in getting your contracts signed off with the least risk, and the least fuss with our business legal advice. We also get very practical with you on the important elements in ensuring that your outcomes of the contract are achieved; for example by ensuring that online legal services levels are tied to remedies, so you don’t have to suffer poor-performing arrangements without a way out.
Outsourced Legal Counsel
We act as outsourced legal counsel for many organisations,
which provides an efficient and cost effective alternative to
inhouse legal counsel.
Our clients regularly compliment our lawyers on our
commercial approach, super fast response times, high
quality of work and ability to distil complex concepts into
simple language in order that our legal advice can be more easily
shared internally with other stakeholders.
Our retainer clients are provided with a hotline phone
number and email address, in order that they have access to
our team of lawyers – to get responses fast. Our retainer
clients are also provided with unique training to assist in
developing more efficient, and lower risk, contract systems
We ask you to consider some of the hard questions now, so that you are always in a
position to act in your company’s best interests. These include:
- Is your team up to date on the laws and correct
procedures to follow regarding hiring and firing?
- Do you have the best policies in place for bullying,
harrassment and discrimination to ensure that
‘work’ is a place that your employees are happy to
attend each day?
- What systems do you currently have in place that
may be infringing workplace surveillance laws,
potentially exposing you to criminal penalties?
If you’re like most of us and don’t quite know what you
need, why not try our innovative Employment
Health-Check as a starting point in getting you sorted?
Aspect Legal has put together a simple product to review
your current human resources policies and procedures to
provide you with a full report on areas of compliance and
non-compliance with legislative requirements, areas of
exposure (to enable you to put in place protective measures
before it costs you money) and areas of potential value.

business understanding to help you get the most out of

Oliver Lazarevic (Supply Clusters)
AMAZING! The team are impressively professional, equally caring and always seek to understand our orientation and concerns. As a small business owner who sometimes does the crazy 80 hours per week, I sense that Aspect are there for me and understand this – always delivering on time and understanding when I need a day or two to turn things around. I would recommend Aspect to all of my clients and friends!
Paula Drayton (Resource Advisory)

Carl Burroughs (IDM Australia)
Having known Joanna for years, my experience with Aspect has been personal , efficient and timely.
Andrew Cassin (Acquisiti)
I had been putting off having our design services terms written, trademarking our logo, writing our contractor terms, etc, Then I discovered Aspect Legal. They took care of all our business legal stuff and made the process so easy. They even helped me negotiate with a client that wanted a refund, which resulted in a very happy client that we’re still designing for today. I highly recommend Aspect Legal. They are not your usual legal firm. They ROCK!
