Lehman Walsh Lawyers

  • Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

Lehman Walsh Lawyers is a specialist Startup and General Corporate Law practice. Founded and led by Janya Eighani, we work with companies at any stage of growth and of any shape or size; we have worked one-on-one with sole-operating entrepreneurs and have also provided services to companies with over 10,000 employees.

We act as your company's virtual legal counsel, with the added flexibility of letting you decide how often you require our input and assistance, without having to commit to a long-term and expensive retainer. We will be there to offer legal assistance throughout your company's lifecycle. Whether you're just starting up and need a few contracts reviewed or you're negotiating an exit strategy requiring expert advice, we'll be with you every step of the way.

Our focus is to do what we can to limit our clients' exposure to legal challenges or litigation. Wherever possible, we seek to mediate issues and reach an amicable and cost-effective resolution for our clients, and where necessary, we fight with vigour and dynamism in court, to protect our clients' legitimate interests.

We focus on serving the needs of entrepreneurial businesses and those who invest in them. We meet their needs at every stage of the business – from start-up to exit, and we support our clients through prosperous times and when times gets tough.

We do not believe in a one-size-fits- all approach to legal services. Our client’s strategic and business objectives guide the way we provide our services - examples include spending a period of time with our clients at their premises and assisting on a full-time basis, attending important meetings with the management team to offer immediate legal advice or the provision of training for staff members. 

Our flexible compensation structures allow a degree of flexibility that the traditional law firms cannot compete with. We offer fixed fee services, where possible, so our clients know exactly how much to budget for legal expenses. In tackling more complex legal matters, such as litigation, we work closely with our clients to monitor the potential expenses and can provide 'event costed' estimates, where we charge for specific stages of the litigation (eg: preparing pleadings, evidence, engaging Counsel and final hearing). We will do all that we can to make sure that our clients succeed and work towards the longevity of our relationship with our clients.
