Nexus Law Group – whose model enables senior lawyers to build independent legal practices within a single firm structure – has appointed commercial property and estate planning specialist and legal technologist Jeremy Duffy as its newest principal, thereby allowing the firm to expand into Adelaide.

Mr Duffy is a “highly experienced and well-respected” lawyer, the firm said in a statement, and given his technology background, he will be a “great asset” to Nexus. The firm said it is “very excited” to have him set up its formal base in Adelaide.

“This is part of a longstanding plan to implement our business model nationally with great lawyers who are aligned with our cultural values and innovative practice structure,” said Nexus managing principal Marcus McCarthy.

 
 

“I am particularly excited about working with Jeremy on some of our technology platforms, including OpenLaw, and targeting quality senior lawyers in South Australia looking for a better working environment for their practice.

“Nexus is a positive revision to the law firm structure that connects independent expertise as one law firm.

“We are focused on creating a law firm of depth and a solid base upon which our ‘dedicated contract’ lawyers can build a successful and rewarding career for themselves. Jeremy will form part of the leadership team as Nexus expands our teams nationally.”

Speaking about his decision to join Nexus, Mr Duffy said that he is interested in legal innovation globally and was looking to build a peer group of like-minded lawyers.

“Nexus offered me the platform to implement my vision for a better form of legal practice in South Australia. I believe Nexus offers lawyers the best of both worlds – the flexibility of sole practice with all the benefits and peer support of a large firm,” he explained.

“Its approach to delivering client-first legal support and practice innovation was of great attraction. Being able to access a national network of experienced specialist peers will also allow me to provide a new level of legal support and expertise to my clients in South Australia.”
