Farallon Law Corporation

Telephone +65 6931 9000
Operating Hours Monday – Friday: 9 AM to 6 PM
Review 1 I have consulted Nicolas on a number of occasions and he was totally professional.  He is a lawyer with good character and conscience who puts the client’s interest first and not how much he could make from the client.  He would go to great lengths to explain why it was not feasible to spend money on a case which was not in the client’s favour.

Nicolas is very patient and very knowledgeable in his field.  What impressed me most is, he is one lawyer who will go the extra mile for clients.  Every lawyer can give advices on things related to law, but it’s the extra mile, integrity, kindness, compassion and a genuine desire to help people exhibited by Nicolas that touches me and makes me go back to him every time I need legal advice.

What does a business lawyer do 

Contract writing 

Contract writing is one of the most important parts when setting up a business. Contracts are necessary written documents when onboarding new employees or bringing in new clients for the business. A business lawyer can assist in drafting the contract to meet the unique needs of your business. 

Decide the type of company to set up 

Suppose you are unsure of which type of company is suitable for your business. In that case, a business lawyer can explain to you in detail each type of business, its liabilities and risks to help you make an informed decision.

Breach of contract

Are you sure of the legal actions to take when one party breaches the contract? A business lawyer can help you handle the paperwork, negotiate, and file a lawsuit on your behalf when there is a breach of contract. 

Resolve business issues

Even if your business is smooth-sailing, sometimes business issues are arising that are inevitable. Such business issues include but are not limited to sick leave, discrimination, sexual harassment, and workplace safety. A business lawyer can educate clients on the applicable laws, such as employment law and the best steps to take in the interest of the business when the issue arises. 

Risk management 

A business lawyer can help new and established businesses by giving advice on their obligations and even developing systems to manage their risk.

Property and real estate matters

A business lawyer can help negotiate the sales and leases of whether you own or lease the business property. A business lawyer is more familiar with real estate laws; hence, they are better positioned to advise you on your business. 

Types of business lawyers 

General business lawyer 

A general business lawyer does not specialise in any specific area of business law. The general business lawyer provides legal advice on a wide range of business matters. This type of lawyer is recommended for businesses that need guidance on multiple areas of the laws.

Employment and labour lawyer 

An employment and labour lawyer handles matters related to employees in a company. A business can seek advice from an employment and labour lawyer to draft employees manuals and safety standards in the workplace. These lawyers can also advise on the steps to take if your business runs into workplace discrimination and sexual harassment. 

Tax lawyer 

Businesses can engage the help of a tax lawyer on tax-related matters. A tax lawyer comes into play when your business gets into trouble with the tax authority. 

Intellectual property lawyer 

Intellectual property lawyers deal with issues regarding trademarks, copyright, and patents. An intellectual property lawyer can work with your business to ensure that your business does not infringe on the intellectual property concerns of other businesses. Most business owners are not aware of whether they have violated the intellectual property law and may get into trouble using specific trademark terms. 

Contract lawyer 

A contract lawyer is responsible for drafting all sorts of contracts for their clients. A contract lawyer can also help determine which type of contracts your business needs and the terms and conditions of the contract needed for the best interest of your business. Contract lawyers are familiar with the contract law to ensure the relevancy of the contract under the contract law. 

When to hire a business lawyer 

Business lawyers can be helpful for you if you are looking at starting a business of your own. There are different business types, and a business lawyer can help you determine the pros and cons of each business type.

When you face business-related problems such as taxation, intellectual property rights, and the breaching of contracts, a business lawyer can help advise you on the legal actions to take. A business lawyer can also provide in-depth information on specific sections of laws to help you understand your situation better. 

Factors to consider before hiring a business lawyer 


The experience of the business lawyer is one of the most important factors when deciding on which business lawyer to hire. Generally, the more experienced the business lawyer is, the more likely your business will benefit from the consultation and advice. More experienced business lawyers are more likely to have dealt with many different types of business owners, so they have a better idea of the best practices for their clients. 


Hiring a business lawyer is a huge and costly investment, especially if your business is starting. It is advisable to have a budget and stay within it as much as possible when searching for business lawyers. However, the cost of the business lawyer should not be the sole factor when determining the quality of the business lawyer, as the quality of the business lawyer is not always directly proportionate to their charges.

Area of expertise 

There are different types of business lawyers, and many of them specialise in a specific area of business law. If you need advice on a specific area, it may be a better idea to seek a business lawyer practising in the particular area rather than a general business lawyer. By seeking a business lawyer with a specific area of expertise, they will cater better to your business needs. 


Hiring a business lawyer can be an excellent investment and help your business solve its issues. However, it is essential to note the different types of business lawyers available in the market and pick the most suitable business lawyer for your business. Before you hire a business lawyer, it is best to have a clear idea of what you would like to achieve at the end of the consultation with the business lawyer to make the best use of your time and money.
