NewLaw Firm of the Year Finalist

“We are excited to be recognised as a finalist for this award, especially in the dynamic NewLaw category. I wanted to bring a progressive style of thinking and services to Australian tech-driven companies in a way that enabled them to use legal to grow exponentially; as a decision-making partner rather than a commercial blocker,” Anthony Bekker explains.

“There aren’t that many other firms doing the sort of high value work we do – which is mission-critical legal work for tech companies. So one of our biggest tasks has been to let clients know that there is a specialised legal service out there that can connect you globally!” said Anthony.

We would also like to acknowledge the important role our clients play in Biztech Lawyers’ nomination for these awards. It is only with their trust in our team, and their forward thinking businesses, that we are able to provide legal services that challenges the market thinking offering a best in class service.
