MELBOURNE LAW firm Mills Oakley last week opened its doors on Sydney’s Clarence Street, launching a range of services in construction, litigation, insolvency, property and commercial law.
The expansion into Sydney allows the mid-tier firm to offer clients a top-tier range of services, said CEO John Nerurker, “whilst maintaining mid-tier service delivery advantages”. These include easy access to partners, value for money and the ability to develop long-term business relationships, he said.
“Time and time again our clients tell us that these elements are what they’re looking for and the reason why they keep working with us.”
Led by Andrew Wallis, a former PricewaterhouseCoopers Legal team will give the firm a presence in the Sydney market, which has been the firm’s intention for some time, Nerurker said. “We’ve noted a growing trend for clients requiring consolidation of their legal services and we’re delighted to now be in a position to meet those requirements.”
The expansion into Sydney is a key part of the firm’s growth plan, said Nerurker, which has in recent months also seen the acquisition of a Patent Attorney practice together with the appointment of new partners Alan Stockdale, Andrew Brown, Peter Ryan, Gino Potenza and their respective practice
