Rod Evenden

Accredited Commercial Law Specialist

Registered Trade Mark Attorney

I have over 25 years experience as a commercial lawyer, originally in big firms in Sydney & Melbourne, then as a partner at White Cleland and now as a sole practitioner.

My primary area of expertise is buying and selling businesses. The industries in which I work are many and varied – from professional services such as healthcare, accountants, financial planners and real estate agents to farming, manufacturing, construction, distribution and retail. The size of the businesses I deal with ranges from small family enterprises to subsidiaries of multinationals turning over 100’s of millions per annum.

As a consequence I also have expertise in:

  • Shareholders Agreements
  • Manufacturing and Distribution Agreements
  • Terms of Trade
  • Construction Contracts
  • Loan Agreements and Security
  • Retail and Commercial Leases
  • Intellectual Property, especially trade marks

For areas such as litigation, tax and family law, which are outside my area of expertise, I have access to an extensive network of experts which I have developed over many years.

In my spare time I have helped my wife grow a gourmet food manufacturing and sales business called Mumma Made, so I also have actual lived experience of the challenges facing business owners.
