Adelaide-based boutique commercial firm NDA Law is bolstering its ranks by way of appointing a new practitioner.
Jordana Mintz (pictured) has been hired by NDA, following the completion of her bachelor of laws and legal practice (honours) at the University of South Australia in 2020 and time with other firms around South Australia.
She is experienced, the firm said in a statement, in commercial transactions, property and construction, estate planning and dispute resolution matters.
Ms Mintz will specialise in the provision of legal advice to family business, agribusiness clients, as well as small-to-medium enterprises in succession planning, wills and estates, and commercial law transactions, as well as assist with the firm’s civil litigation team.
Speaking about the appointment, NDA managing director Joshua Davies said that Ms Mintz is a “welcome addition” to the firm.
“I am thrilled to welcome Jordana to the team at NDA Law and I know her skills and dedication to the profession will make a great contribution in coming years,” he said.
Mr Davies added that the appointment also highlights new opportunities for women in the legal profession.
“This year, most of our lawyers at NDA Law just happen to be women at 6:1. Many of our people are also from minority backgrounds with employees representing countries including Palestine, Greece, China, Croatia, and Cyprus. That’s very different to the normal firm profile in this profession,” he detailed.
“It is no surprise that we have become a real workplace of choice in SA because the firm is known for our female-friendly culture that actively promotes flexible work, leadership pathways, and specialised mentoring to help young women in law get to where they want to be, faster. This includes NDA’s unique ‘women on boards’ training program.
“I am really proud of our boutique approach, our deep expertise, and the efforts we have made to build the skills and commercial acumen of young graduates,” he proclaimed.
“Research shows striving for greater gender diversity ultimately leads to better business outcomes for business and for clients and slowly the legal profession is waking up to that fact.”
