Usha Praser (pictured) has joined Law Squared, bringing her “extensive knowledge and capability” in corporate and commercial litigation along with insolvency and restructuring.

She previously served as a special counsel at Enyo Lawyers and Creevey Russell Lawyers and has also been a senior associate at Allens and Otto Martiens Lawyers.

Ms Praser becomes the seventh member of the firm’s disputes and litigation team, and her appointment brings the total staffing number at Law Squared to 35.


Speaking about the appointment, Law Squared director Demetrio Zema said: “Usha brings with her a broad knowledge and skill base, to further bolster our existing Disputes + Litigation team’s capability. Working with leading multinational and corporate clients across commercial and contractual disputes, insolvency, restructuring and general debt and asset recovery, Usha will bring a new dynamic and insight into our unique litigation model.

“As a fixed fee firm including for all our disputes + litigation work nationally, Law Squared remains uniquely placed to continue to challenge the boundaries of traditional law firms that charge and bill litigation using hourly and time-based billing. Law Squared’s unique litigation billing model continues to allow us to attract high calibre clients seeking cost certainty and awareness as to their maximum legal cost exposure across an array of litigious matters.”

“We are now seeing the rewards of our hard work and dedication over the first six years of the business. We find ourselves in the unique position of being able to not only work with some of Australia’s leading listed and unlisted businesses but to also be attracting some exceptional new talent to the firm.”

Ms Praser said that she feels “privileged” to have joined Law Squared and is looking forward to the “freedom to immerse myself” in its disputes and litigation team.

“I have been watching Law Squared closely, as one of the leading firms in the NewLaw space. I felt that the time was right to make the jump to an innovative firm – one providing clients with a true alternative fee and engagement model,” she said.

“I am very much looking forward to working with the team over the coming months to further refine our ways of working and ensure that we continue to get the best outcomes for our clients.”
