How We Help

The Redchip team is energised by the outcomes we achieve for our clients, and by delivering advice and services that support your plans to succeed.

Your business journey requires a strong foundation, positioning you to create and capture new opportunities. We work with you, arm-in-arm as your advisers, to plan for growth, optimise opportunity and manage risk. Underpinning creation and growth are the mechanisms and processes we implement to protect and guard the outcomes.

Redchip relishes the opportunity to challenge conventional thinking whilst maintaining focus on the outcomes our clients are seeking to achieve.

Our advisory and services model delivers the full spectrum of property and commercial law, intellectual property, mergers and acquisitions, business and estate planning, taxation and dispute resolution. Behind these services are our multidisciplinary teams, laser focussed on delivering results and outcomes, not just paperwork.

We acknowledge that no law firm can be all things to all people, and underpin our services with a broad commercial network – we connect people with purpose, and focus on better returns for clients, by tapping both our resources pool and wider connections.

We recognise that our clients’ success is driven by creating value, growing opportunities, and protecting what’s important:

  • Value is created from sound commercial and legal foundations. It’s about capturing opportunities, understanding and managing exposure, and surviving well beyond year one
  • We will position you for growth by developing strategies that enable you to leverage opportunities and mitigate risk
  • We understand that setting you up for success and exit is wedded to establishing the right protection strategies

Whilst opportunities may lie around every corner, it’s not everyone who can seize the day and realise the full potential of those opportunities. They may be found in your growing...

We understand the risks inherent in building your life and business, in protecting what matters to you from infringement, dispute and unforeseen downturns. Outcomes matter most when it...
