This is a division of Lexxon Lawyers – www.lexxon.com.au – which was founded by Russell Wheeler in 1996. Lexxon works closely with residentdirectors.com.au because a lot of the issues which need to be addressed in the company start-up business are legal issues which can only be dealt with in Australia by a registered law firm.
Russell Wheeler, BA, LL.B.
Russell has practised law for over 30 years, and has a wealth of experience in different areas of business law, particularly business start-ups. Some of the specific areas include:
- Negotiating and drafting business contracts;
- Risk management e.g. asset protection; shareholders’ agreements
- Technology e.g. software, internet & IT deals;
- Intellectual property – licensing; trademarks, etc
- Problem prevention – contractual and practical
- Buying and selling businesses and/or companies;
- Problem resolution – conflict resolution and litigation
Russell’s legal expertise is supplemented by his experience in investment banking, his direct experience in business (having set up several different businesses for himself, not just for clients) and his expertise in negotiation [from 1988 to 1996 he specialised almost exclusively in work involving commercial and legal negotiations, and delivered courses throughout Australia on negotiation skills].
Russell is often retained to assist with the strategy and tactics required for specific negotiations because of the unique combination of his business, negotiation and legal expertise/experience.
