Our Areas of Expertise

Cormiston Legal is a very experienced Law Firm based in Launceston, Tasmania specialising in Conveyancing, Property and Commercial Law.

We use plain English in all our communications with you and we will provide timely advice to help you determine the best course of action based on your circumstances. Below is a more detailed outline of what we do.


Whether you are buying or selling property it is important that you engage a law firm to act on your behalf. This is to ensure that the transaction proceeds in accordance with the law and the legal transfer of ownership is carried out correctly. We are very experienced in both commercial and residential conveyancing.

Property Law

We provide property law advice in the following areas:

  • Preparing contracts of sale for both commercial and residential properties;
  • Commercial and residential property settlements;
  • Preparation, review and negotiation of commercial and residential leases; and
  • Property development matters including subdivisions.

Commercial Law

There are many legal documents, licences and other agreements that must be considered when running a business. We can help prepare, review and negotiate the documents that you need for your business. 

We specialise in the areas of commercial law that are relevant to the demands of growing businesses. Whether you are buying, building or leaving a business, we can assist you.

Wills and Estates

A Will is a document that sets out how any property that you own is to be distributed after your death.

If you die without having made a valid Will the administration of your estate may be complex and expensive, and the distribution of your estate may not proceed in the manner you would have wanted.
To ensure that your Will is valid it is important to have it prepared by a lawyer. Whilst Will kits are inexpensive they can, if ambiguous or incorrectly completed, result in legal costs that substantially exceed any savings made.

We have many years of experience in preparing Wills and assisting in the administration of estates.
