What has taken years to build can be torn down in moments.

Protecting what is most important to you is more than just about bricks and mortar. We understand the risks inherent in building your life and business, and what it takes to protect what matters most from infringement, dispute and unforeseen issues. Outcomes matter most when it comes to defending your business and intellectual property, protecting your assets and taking care of the people in your life.

Your business:
Protecting your business interests sees Redchip cut across several facets of your operations. Whilst our pedigree lies in intellectual property and trade marks, we have a deep understanding of other potential pressure points and work to bring clarity and confidence in the event of commercial disputes, litigation and insolvency.

Your assets:
Our asset protection strategies take into account the blood, sweat and tears you pour into building something from scratch. We build estate plans, superannuation strategies and undertake trade mark due diligence and registration to defend your assets. In the event that further action is required, our Conflict Resolution team comes to the party to work through debt recovery and litigation.

The people in your life:
A wealth of assets means nothing without the people – family, staff and colleagues – who form our community. We work with our clients to develop a sophisticated understanding of their goals for the people around them and the areas of vulnerability they face. Our Estate Planning and Employment Law teams take this into account in building strategies and delivering services to protect the people in your life.
