Corporate Governance & NFPs

At Streeterlaw, we understand that you want your organisation, company or not for profit charity to be professional, proactive and successful.

The right decision

You want to make the right decisions because they will affect your business, its shareholders and other key stakeholders. Making the wrong decisions may expose your business to risk and you may also expose you to personal liability. The hard decisions you must make need to be justifiable and informed to protect yourself and the business you oversee.

The right guide

In order to govern with confidence, you need the right guide. An experienced advisor who can be an insightful sounding board on how to implement, maintain and audit the right corporate governance framework is essential.

The problem is that there are only so many hours in the day, too many disputes, risks and concerns to triage (each with varying and competing priorities) one can feel overwhelmed. Another challenge is that all too often, well-meaning and kind-hearted Directors are often criticised regardless of the validity of the decisions they make.

You need the right guide with the right experience to help you make the right decision with confidence.

The right experience

The types of disputes, we encounter include: –

  • Commercial Disputes
  • Corporate Governance
  • Company Disputes
  • Director Disputes
  • Shareholder Disputes
  • Government Investigations
  • Breach of Director’s Duties and Fiduciary Duties
  • Not-for Profit organisations
  • Propriety Limited organisations
  • Government Investigations, such as:-
    1. Australian Competition and Consumer Commission investigations
    2. Australian Securities and Investments Commission investigations
    3. Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission
    4. Australian Competition and Consumer Law

The right tools

At Streeterlaw we believe in equipping you with cost effective, result driven solutions to prevent or resolve disputes.

We want to ensure that you understand the legal boundaries of your position, your duties and your role.

  1. Your Role as a NFP Director and the ACNC
  2. Your Role as a Director and ASIC
  3. Your Role as a Director and the ACCC 

At Streeterlaw we can equip you to make informed decisions by assisting you in understanding your duties and obligations. We are often surprised when directors or officers of publicly listed companies, successful propriety limited companies or NFP charities are unable to demonstrate an accurate understanding of their duties and responsibilities. All too often we find that directors are unaware of the personal liabilities.

The right information

Whether you are an experienced Director, or you are new to Directing, we have prepared a considered white paper that explains your liabilities, risks and other significant issues. It is an essential introduction for new officer holders and a vital refresher for experienced position holders.

What our clients say about Streeterlaw...

"Thanks so much to yourself, Mark and the Streeterlaw team for getting us this result, we are more than hapy with how everything went and the result we got. We would recommend Streeterlaw's legal services to anyone!"
"Thank you for your letter summarising the hearing. Your summary was very helpful with providing me with greater understanding of procedures and the outcome of the hearing.

I was and remain delighted with your guidance and professional approach

Thank you for your highly skilled representation of my Application."
"A heartfelt thank you for being my defender. It was so reassuring to have you work with me throughout this process. I can honestly say that your support was the best therapy I have received throughout my recovery – having someone as empathic and skilful as you fighting for my rights during my most vulnerable time has done far more for me than my copious psychologist, psychiatrist and group therapy sessions."
"I would like to thank you & Mark for everything you had done for myself and my husband. I have been focusing on staying and thinking positive. I am very grateful and appreciative for everything both you and Mark have done for me. I am glad that I went to you and fought for my rights, but most of all that I was able to understand for the first time what was happening."
"I acknowledge the extensive contributions Jamal and others from Streeterlaw. Their timely advice, assistance and back-up has been much appreciated. Without it, I would not have been able to successfully fulfil my role."

All your dedication and hard work as a leader has paid off.
Thank you for contributing (with your outstanding professional team) for an outcome such as my matter.
