New Client Information
How Can We Assist You?
Whether you are an individual, a small business or a larger business, our lawyers are experts in Construction Law and can offer you tailored legal assistance regarding entry into an Engineering or Construction Contract, through the duration of the administration of the Contract, and where necessary can provide representation and dispute resolution.
The First Consultation Overview
The First Consultation is a great opportunity for us to provide you with some preliminary legal advice and relevant documentation to augment your understanding of the legal system. It gives you the chance to meet our Brisbane Legal Team, including Our Principal, “Chris Lenz”, who conducts most new client’s consultation.
Your First Consultation will last between 60 – 90 minutes.
Lenz Moreton bills on a competitive hourly rate.
Under the Legal Profession Act 2007 (QLD), we are required to provide all Clients with information that best describes the basis on which we propose that you engage us. Accordingly, all New Clients will receive a disclosure notice and costs agreement, (the “Client Agreement”).
If you accept the terms of the Client Agreement, you may be asked to deposit an agreed amount into theLenz Moreton Law Practice Trust Account as pre-payment for remuneration, pending performance of work and outlays in connection therewith. The Queensland Law Society Trust Accounting Guidelines specifies that “trust monies may only be dispersed once an account has been rendered in accordance with the terms as specified in the Client Agreement.”
