Professional & Medical Services


EMA Legal provides legal advice to a range of professional services firms, such as:

  • Accountants
  • Financial planners
  • Veterinary clinics
  • Management consultants
  • Consulting engineering firms
  • Architects
  • Real estate agents
  • Other law firms

Given many of our  clients are small businesses, we provide cost effective advice in areas such as award compliance, dismissal and restraint of trade, so that our clients can focus on their client’s needs.

A recurring problem for our professional clients is the protection of confidential information and restraint of trade issues when senior employees leave their businesses. Engaging EMA Legal to draft contracts when new employees are engaged can ensure that employee obligations concerning confidential information and restraint of trade are enforceable. Too often professional clients come to us with contracts that are impossible to enforce. If legal proceedings against former employees are necessary we advance our clients’ interests in the most cost-effective-way possible.


Some of South Australia’s leading medical companies use EMA Legal when faced with highly sensitive and complex legal issues.

We work with:

  • Private hospitals
  • General practitioners
  • Specialist medical practices
  • Dental practices
  • Pharmacies
  • Allied health professionals

Recently, we have advised medical practices on terms and conditions of employment, advised on the dismissal of senior employees, worked through partnership issues with our clients and represented medical practices in disputes with patients, former employees and former directors. We also provide advice and representation concerning professional negligence and regulatory issues.
