Read time: 2 minutes

When approached to undertake a commission, one of the first questions you should ask is: is my client a 'legal person'? A legal person is an entity that can sue and be sued. The most common forms of a legal person are:

  • a natural person (individual)
  • a company (public Limited or ‘Ltd’ and private ‘Pty Ltd’).

An incorporated association is also a legal entity.
