Firm appoints new national partner

Firm appoints new national partner

Steven William

A firm has bolstered its commercial and property practice by welcoming a new national partner.

Steven Morris (pictured) has been appointed as national commercial/property partner at Smith Leonard Fahey Lawyers.

Mr Morris brings to his new role 30 years’ experience in commercial and property law. He joins from Ferguson Cannon Lawyers where he was a director. Prior to that, he was employed by Sciaccas Lawyers, Walsh Halligan Douglas Lawyers, Charter Finance and Dibbs Barker.

Mr Morris will be based in Smith Leonard Fahey Lawyers’ Brisbane office and will frequently attend the firm’s Sydney, Melbourne and Perth offices with the aim of growing the firm’s commercial and property practice throughout Australia.

A big goal will be bolstering his existing team nationally over the next 12 months.

Smith Leonard Fahey Lawyers acts for a range of property developers, businesses and SMEs.

The commercial and property practice’s main work includes business sales and purchases, acting for franchisees on new and purchased franchises, commercial, industry and retail shop leasing for landlords and tenants, and the establishment of charitable foundations.

The practice also specialises in residential disputes and advice, company and trust set-up, shareholders agreements, unitholder agreements, director disputes and work-out arrangements, and commercial and residential property sales and purchases.
