Jill is  lady of few words. Jill just gets things done in a thorough compliant matter. That's what we want and what she does. No embellishment just outcomes.Just don't pinch her away from us!

Project Manager

Sharon has worked for the biggest and the best in Australia before settling down in Sydney. Otherwise known in the office as the creative mind, her charm and willingness to talk to anyone and everyone has been key to building "down to earthness" amongst our stakeholders.

Despite her fondness for efficiency, Sharon doesn't take prisoners and is a great team builder who likes nothing more than spending time with the dogs, family, garden and her hobbies.

Melissa solves any matter we have in a very low key, soft spoken and very efficient manner. Her approach to the legal world is novel and extremely effective. She loves people albeit doesn't tolerate fools lightely. In her spare time, she likes to run and spend time with her loved ones.
