Sole practitioners join NewLaw firm as consulting principals

Sole practitioners join NewLaw firm as consulting principals

Sydney lawyers Helen Amanatiadis and Jayne Humphreys have joined Nexus Law Group as its new consulting principals.

Ms Amanatiadis (pictured), who joins the firm from her sole practice H Plus Law, has more than 10 years’ experience in commercial litigation. She specialises in the areas of security of payments, arbitration and dispute resolution in the construction and strata sectors.

Ms Humphreys has provided wills and estate planning services from her practice JL Humphreys & Associates Lawyers. She has worked in estate planning and estate administration since 2003, with 15 years' legal experience.

Ms Humphreys also specialises in elder law and business succession planning and is a full member of the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners. She has previously worked for London firms Kingsley Napley and Stephenson Harwood. 

According to a statement released by Nexus Law Group, the two new sole practitioners have been brought on board as part of the firm’s strategy to “build a skilled and varied cohort of lawyers”.

“It can be a little isolating running your own sole practice,” Ms Amanatiadis said.

“Working with Nexus gives me access to other lawyers who are experts in their field and the support of a broader national construction team.”

Interest in the NewLaw firm from lawyers across Australia has peaked in recent times, according to Nexus Law Group founder Marcus McCarthy.

“Lawyers are keen to have the autonomy and engagement of building their own practice, [as well as] the support and collegiate resources of a wider team and established brand,” Mr McCarthy said.

“Nexus is able to bridge the gap between large firms and sole practitioners, providing a viable practice alternative for lawyers and the best of both worlds for clients,” he said.

The NewLaw firm operates under the OpenLaw practice model, which is based on cloud-based software, and designed to join senior legal experts “under a single, unified practice platform, enabling it to deliver high-end, specialist expertise under a ‘direct access model’, more cost effectively than traditionally structured firms".
