Geoff Harbert Former Managing Director Bright Eyes , Caboolture
In our association of more than 15 years your advice has saved me more than once . I am grateful for your assistance with the sale of the shares in my Company to Oakley Inc. I know that transacting with a publicly listed company can be challenging, I also appreciate your advice in many smaller but equally frustrating matters that have come up from time to time. Your professional approach is a true asset to my past and future business requirements.
Ralph Edwards Former Chief Executive Officer Bright Eyes , Brisbane
With the legal guidance of Joe Riba and his franchising team I was able to expand my national franchise system within every state in Australia. As the Chief Executive Officer and one of the primary shareholders in a multimillion dollar private enterprise such as Bright Eyes I found Joe’s help invaluable. Joe’s ability to read between the lines, focus on solutions and circumnavigate potentially damaging situations was one of the most important elements in the success of my company.
Tony Pearson CFP®Adv. Dip. FS(FP) , Maroochydore
On a recent purchase of a competitors business we chose to use JJ Riba and Company due to their professionalism and knowledge in the area of Commercial law. I have been so impressed with every dealing we have had with Joe and his team, not only in Commercial Law but also Estate Planning, that I now refer my clients to JJ Riba and Company.
Graham Baulch DIrector Medimobile Pty Ltd , Brisbane
When my business was bought out by a publicly listed competitor, I chose J J Riba and Company to assist me with the transaction. With the help of Joe and his team we were able to structure this multimillion dollar transaction to our advantage notwithstanding that we were dealing with a much larger public entity. Joe anticipated potential problems early which I believe saved me expense. I am now one of the directors and controllers of Medimobile Pty Ltd which in 2010 made the BRW fast 100. Medimobile Pty Ltd are grateful to J J Riba and Company for their legal expertise. Director Medi Mobile
Wayne Pearson Director , Maroochydore
Our business now turns over nearly 10 million dollars a year. The rapid expansion of our operation in Brisbane and on the Sunshine Coast has, in recent years, necessitated our search for a legal team with the relevant commercial expertise and knowledge to keep pace with this rate of growth. We are very pleased to have worked with you on this project. Your caring assistance with the transaction itself and our corporate succession planning was very welcome. Thank you for your advice. We look forward to doing business with you again.
