small but nimble

We are a Melbourne, South-West Coast business and property law practice. The mobility and flexibility of our service means we are in a unique position to help individuals and SMEs with their legal challenges as they arise and progress matters to a timely resolution. A small practice translates to low overheads, meaning less waste and more benefit to clients with lower costs.

We practice in a range of areas from bread-and-butter practices such as conveyancing, employment law and civil litigation to niche areas such as property and building law and entertainment industries.
