Services tailored to the needs of small business.

Avenue Solutions was established by Richard Stewart in 2011 as a multi-disciplinary firm tailored to meet the particular needs of micro and small businesses. The firm grew to include a team of lawyers, accountants and tax agents and, whilst the firm has undergone its own changes, it remains committed to working with its micro and small business clients. Our services continue to be widely accessible due to our relatively low cost model, fixed fee and hourly rate options, and very high levels of transparency – all our fees are available on our website which enables clients to compare and manage their costs.

Avenue Solutions continues to offer legal, accounting and taxation services via two distinct firms. The legal practice is now operated by Richard effectively as a sole practitioner, whilst the accounting and tax practice is operated by Arpana Patel. Richard and Arpana work closely together to provide clients with a multi-disciplinary professional services solution, and our capacity in this regard is further improved through our ongoing and close working relationships with other service providers including other law firms, insurance advisers, financial planners, marketing and business development experts. Referrals to these providers can be arranged on request.

General legal services.

In 2018 Richard expanded the legal practice to include a presence in Central Victoria and, as part of this practice, accepts instructions beyond commercial law services to include the drafting of wills, estates and probate work, property law and conveyancing. Richard can arrange referrals for family law and criminal law matters, and most other areas of law. Accounting and taxation services are available to our Central Victoria based clients by appointment.

In 2020, consultations will be available at selected offices in and around Melbourne, our consulting room in Newstead, via telephone and Zoom (audio and visual via laptop or mobile telephone).
