Meyer Vandenberg Lawyers (MV) are proud to be new corporate partners of ClubsACT for the next three years and together we want to assist clubs in the Australian Capital Territory to grow, diversify and prosper. We can help Clubs diversify their portfolios and navigate in an environment that is complex (in areas like gaming legislation, governance, workplace relations and privacy), challenging (in terms of revenue) and ever changing (like in social media and technology).
Our firm is Canberra’s largest independent law firm, employing 80 staff. We have an extensive track record of investing back into the local community through our pro bono work, activity in the Canberra business community and giving to charity.
MV is no stranger to Clubs. Many Clubs in the ACT have participated in the past 12 months in one of our training sessions on gaming legislation changes relating to reporting and benefits, privacy and bullying.
In the Clubs industry, our clients include the Canberra Labor Club and the Hellenic Club.
“Meyer Vandenberg have been our legal advisors for many years. We value their advice and transactional services on everything from governance to growth. Most recently Meyer Vandenberg advised the Club on the purchase of an $18 million property in Queensland.
They are a part of our business and our community, and they understand what matters to us.”
Ian Cameron – CEO, Hellenic Club August 2014
“In our business it is important to ensure we stay up to date with relevant legislation changes and industry compliance. Meyer Vandenberg has been assisting the club in this regard since 2009 with their localised knowledge and expertise.
They know our business very well and have always provided timely and accurate advice that we can rely on.”
Arthur Roufogalis – CEO, Canberra Labor Club September 2014
