We ask a law firm partner a series of rapid-fire questions about their career. This time: Tammy Holzheimer from Commins Hendriks.

 

Which firm are you with?
Commins Hendriks.

When did you join that firm?
2002.

When were you made a partner of that firm?
2009.

Which firm were you at most recently prior to this?
This was my first job out of Uni after taking a break to travelling for a while.

What practice group are you with?
Commercial/Rural/Property

What has been a major career highlight for you?
I like being a partner in a regional firm. Big enough to get some specialised knowledge but small enough that everyone knows your name. I am proud to have become a partner in a regional based firm which has the staff and resources to provide top quality legal services for rural and regional people and businesses.
 

What do you like about being a lawyer?                                                                                                                      Variety – in my practice area you never do the same thing twice. You need to be flexible and work to each clients needs and circumstances and you get to work closely with very genuine country people. I do a lot of work with small/medium sized business many of which are family owned. I like working with business owners to work with them through some of the trickier transactions they may encounter and watching them make a real success of their business. 

We have done a lot of succession planning for family owned farms many of which are large farming operations and untangling those structures is challenging and rewarding to work with families to move the business forward. I have also enjoyed working with some big players in the agricultural industry on some large scale sales/purchases of farms and businesses.

What do you find challenging?
Juggling emails. It is a constant battle. Also, going out socially and people that; ‘don’t want to talk work but just have a quick question’.

What do you enjoy doing when you are not working?
With two young children aged 3 and 1 there is not currently much time for hobbies or interests outside of work. I really look forward to spending time with my children. They constantly amaze me and are hilarious little people.

Pre-children I enjoyed travelling, some social sporting and as they get older, I look forward to be able to enjoy getting back to lots of outdoor activities such as camping and fishing preferably with the weekend papers and good coffee.
