Superannuation and funds

In the world of superannuation and financial services, there are constant changes to regulatory regimes and compliance requirements. Keeping up is stressful and there are plenty of other demands on your time. Here’s the good news: we can help.

We are proud of our reputation for providing exceptional advice to major South Australian superannuation and financial services businesses. We’re also known for advising clients in related areas including authorised deposit-taking institutions, friendly societies, self-managed superannuation funds and their service providers, as well as other financial services licensees.

Working closely with in-house legal teams, risk and compliance teams, management and boards, we advise on all legal and technical issues – from compliance and risk management to investments and transactional work, and more. Our team has assisted with many of South Australia’s most complex and significant superannuation and financial services transactions.

With the increase in superannuation-related court matters in South Australia, we are also there for our clients, guiding them through the complexities and working on outcomes that are commercially smart and practical. Our work includes applications to the Supreme Court for approval of trust deed amendments, as well as death benefit disputes and other complaint proceedings.
