  • An excellent job... Very hard working, great output and fun to work with.

    Meyrick Cox, Partner
    Rothschild
  • A very determined lawyer who provides legal advice that is appropriate having regard to the commercial context, but also elegant when considered purely from a legal perspective. Her business acumen is outstanding.

    Leif Gamertsfelder, Executive General Manager
    Commonwealth Bank of Australia
  • It has been great working with My-Linh and her team. Metis Law helped us with our business [contracts]. They made recommendations that we have never thought of before. My-Linh is always up front with cost so there are no surprises when we receive our invoices. I highly recommend her team.

    Henry Chow, Managing Director
    Motionwave Technologies
  • A knowledgeable and pragmatic lawyer who was focused on achieving outcomes which were workable for everyone involved in negotiations.

    Michael Dalby, Legal Manager
    Australian Stock Exchange
  • I find My-Linh refreshingly clear with communication and execution of anything I require. It can be difficult to find a lawyer who isn't a time-watcher, and you can tell My-Linh is focused solely on the outcome for the benefit of her client. It's hard to imagine enjoying working with a Lawyer, but I can honestly say I do in this case.

    Bob Greenup, Executive Director
    BNI Sydney CBD
  • My-Linh was quick to understand the brief and asked clear, insightful questions to inform the structure of the agreements and drive commercial considerations we had not previously considered. Importantly, My-Linh speaks and writes in plain English - not 'legalese' and completed the project well ahead of our projected timelines and produced a clear, concise and commercially effective set of contracts.

    Michael Field, Managing Director
    Michael Field Strategic Marketing Consultants
  • I have been blown away by My-Linh's attention to detail and professionalism. The details provided by the other party where limited as they where time poor. My-Linh recognised this and altered her approach to get what I needed to complete the transaction. I have and will continue to refer My-Linh and her team.

    Adrian Fadini, Director
    Trained To Sell

Is Your Automatic Renewal Clause Legal?

Automatic Renewal Clauses (“ARCs”) can be golden for business. But for all their perks, ARCs are notoriously problematic. They may irritate customers who’ve missed the termination window, trap businesses in undesirable ongoing agreements and undermine the validity of entire contracts. And the ACCC is increasingly vigilant about their terms.

Whether your company uses or subscribes to ARCs, understanding their limitations – and legality – will keep you out of trouble. Read on for our comprehensive (and comprehensible) ARC summary.
