Business Regulation + Compliance

Do you need help with setting up your regulated businesss, or with ongoing compliance?

We specialise in heavily regulated sectors that require a compliant initial set up, including licenses, permits and registration with regulators. 

 

 

 

We empower you with the knowledge and work processes to avoid regulatory and compliance breaches and claims, as these will impact on your cashflow, resources, time, and possibly even your reputation.

 

Towers Legal has over 12 years of specialisation in regulatory compliance and we provide easy to understand advice to ensure you are protected.

 

When you initially come to us, we do a deep dive into your business framework and goals.

 

From there we can provide you with user friendly advice on how to comply with your regulatory and compliance obligations, as well as preparing any documents and applications required. We offer fixed fee packages where possible.

 
Once you are set up, we can provide ongoing practical advice as you need it, to ensure that your compliance is built into your business. We act for our ongoing clients on a monthly or quarterly retainer basis, which gives you certainty and cost efficiency around your compliance.

What if something goes wrong?

Hayley worked as a regulatory enforcement lawyer at ASIC and has represented professionals regulated by AHPRA and other bodies. Many lawyers do not have regulatory enforcement experience and we recommend hiring one that does.

 

If you are contacted by a regulator or a claim is made against you, we can provide expert guidance on next steps and assist you with your defence of any claim or investigation.
