Excellent lawyers! They assisted us recently with our new business lease, going through every dot point and ensuring that I understood what everything meant, as well as fighting for us in negotiations. They would not allow me to sign off on anything until they were absolutely satisfied. I very much recommend them and would use them again in the future.

Richard and the team were on the ball and great to deal with in a recent property transaction.  Very knowledgeable in their area of expertise and reached out to us for the accounting perspective to ensure both legal and accounting were handled simultaneously.
