Commercial Legal Services

Navigating the commercial legal landscape in business can be a daunting experience for even the most astute business owner, especially one that is highly regulated, as is the case with the Fuel Retail sector. Coupling that with your own personal matters and often other business interests, it is imperative that you have sound professional legal advice and proper structures set up from the outset.

From ensuring that the correct legal structures are put in place from the outset, to structuring your Partnership Agreement and to negotiating and drafting Commercial Agreements, it is vital that every business owner fully understands and is aware of the legal implications of these Agreements and structures and has access to industry specialists who can help guide them through these Agreements and processes whilst giving them sound, practical, commercial legal.

With specific reference to the purchase and sale of sites, PetroCONNECT Legal offers the services of drafting site-specific Sale of Business Agreements to ensure that both the seller and purchaser are fully protected in the sale process. PetroCONNECT Legal has adopted a legal tracker approach to ensure that the sale process will be concluded within desired time frames and further to ensure that full compliance with the Sale of Business Agreement is met between both Parties. We have a system that puts the “power back in your hands” and allows you to track the progress of your transaction from inception to completion, ensuring transparency of the transaction is at the forefront at all times.

As part of drafting the Sale of Business Agreement, PetroCONNECT Legal will also attend to the drafting of all necessary Resolutions on behalf of the seller and purchaser to effect the necessary sale transaction, submit the Section 34 advertisements to the Government Gazette as required in terms of the Insolvency Act and attend to the drafting of all necessary Agreements to incorporate any amendments required by both Parties

PetroCONNECT has qualified legal personnel internally and has also partnered with commercial and corporate law specialists who not only understand the industry and the specific issues relevant to business owners in the energy sector, but also all aspects of commercial and corporate law where professional legal advice is required. PetroCONNECT, together with these specialists, has developed tailor-made solutions for business owners that are a first for the industry and one-of-a-kind.
