Family Law

Just as no two people are the same, no two families are alike.  Here at Bay Legal, we understand that your situation is unique.


We understand that experiencing a family law issue is an emotionally trying and taxing time for you and your family, and will undertake any proceedings in your matter in a sensitive manner. We believe that assisting and guiding you through each step in the process is vital in ensuring that that you understand and are in the control of your matter.


Our Family Law team will work with you to achieve the best outcome suited to you and your family, no matter how simple or complex your matter may be.



There are established legal processes in place to ensure that your estate is distributed and administered in accordance with your wishes and the law.


Some clients only require a simple Will to dispose of their assets. However, some clients may want a Testamentary Trust Will to protect their assets and ensure their wealth is distributed according to their wishes.


Circumstances requiring a Testamentary Trust Will may arise in the following scenarios:


  • Large and complex estates
  • Blended or mixed families as a result of divorce and remarriage, or marriage-like de facto relationships
  • Anticipation of a family dispute over your assets
  • Concerns of financially vulnerable beneficiaries

Our experienced solicitors can advise you on how your estate will be administered upon your death and assist you with drafting your Will to reflect your wishes.

  • Arranging due diligence searches, inspections and enquiries
  • Contracts
  • Debt recovery
  • Franchising

Debt Recovery

If you or your company are owed money, you need competent, efficient, and cost-effective advice on recovering it from your debtors.
Over many years Bay Legal has acted for individuals and small companies up to large multi-national companies and has delivered satisfaction to clients who had otherwise given up on ever recovering substantial sums of money.


We are also well appraised with the commercial consideration of our clients. In particular, litigation can be costly in time and money, so we always strive to give our clients the full range of options every step of the way. If the matter proceeds all the way to a hearing or trial, we endeavour to put our clients in the best position to recover the costs they have expended along the way.


Debts cost you money. The longer you are owed money, the more it costs. To assist in preparing and gathering evidence for your case, it is generally preferable to act sooner rather than later. This also means that gathering evidence can be less costly when it is fresh in the memories of your key witnesses.


Administrative Law

Bay Legal has assisted clients in administrative and judicial reviews of government action.

We have appeared in the Australian Administrative Tribunal, the Federal Court of Australia, and state Supreme Courts against the decisions and actions of government bodies.



We understand that individual circumstances need to be tailored to reach your objectives.

Whether you require advice on how to manage an existing trust or to establish an entirely new trust, our team of lawyers can help you with your legal issues. If you are thinking of setting up a new trust, we will help you consider the advantages and disadvantages of the different trust structures to achieve your goals best.
