There is nothing more powerful than bringing brilliance and order to disparate ideas to create something new.

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 business, the new idea you’ve had or the right space you’re looking at to house your business, investment or family.

Your new business:

The Redchip team brings our combined commercial expertise to the table in delivering advice to start-up businesses. Whether clients are purchasing a franchise, needing to raise capital or employing staff, we build a supporting infrastructure for them that structures their business for success, factors in pertinent taxation considerations, and establishes appropriate employee and workplace frameworks.

Your new idea:

Many of these businesses grow from new ideas, providing fertile ground for clients to pursue research and development grants, access intellectual property and trade mark advice, or seek input from our technology law team.

The right space:

New ideas and businesses will always thrive in the right physical environment. Redchip’s commercial, retail, industrial and residential property expertise allows clients to identify and capture the spaces most conducive to their dreams growing from embryo to maturity.
