Commercial Law

Mayek Legal specialises in commercial law services in Melbourne. We assist clients with a wide range of common commercial disputes, including breach of contract, debt recovery, breaches of Australian Consumer Law, misleading and deceptive conduct, employment matters such as unfair dismissal, tenancy disputes (both residential and commercial), building and construction disputes, partnership and shareholder disputes, product liability, and defamation.

Commercial Law


Mayek Legal emphasises resolving commercial disputes through negotiation and without Court involvement whenever possible, as Court proceedings can be costly, time-consuming, and results are not always guaranteed. They gather detailed instructions and relevant documents and evidence from their clients to inform them of the strength of the case and engage in a process called discovery to obtain all relevant documents from the opposing party. If negotiations fail, Mayek Legal can provide Court representation and advise clients on the costs and risks involved in initiating Court proceedings.

Mayek Legal has experience in all jurisdictions, including the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT), Magistrates’ Court, County Court of Victoria, and Supreme Court of Victoria.

Mayek Legal also assists consumers with various issues under Australian Consumer Law, including misleading and deceptive conduct, unfair terms in contracts, defective goods, services not performed with due care and skill, and goods or services not corresponding with their description or promises. They can help consumers lodge complaints with the relevant authorities, such as Consumer Affairs Victoria, and provide legal assistance in resolving consumer disputes.

Debt Recovery


In addition to commercial dispute resolution, Mayek Legal also assists clients with debt recovery. We can issue a letter of demand to the debtor, setting out the amount owed, the due date for payment, and a threat of legal action if the debt is not paid by the stipulated due date. If the debtor denies the debt or requests further evidence, Mayek Legal provides the necessary evidence through invoices, communications, and other documentation.
