Adelaide firm NDA Law wins place on global experts list in 2016 Finance Awards

Adelaide firm NDA Law has made a coveted list of top-­ranked Australian law firms published as part of the UK-­based Corporate LiveWire’s 2016 Finance Awards, announced yesterday.

The NDA team won the award for the category of ‘excellence in legal services’ and is now listed in an international guide to finance services and supporting expertise in the region.

The Corporate LiveWire Finance Awards is a highly acclaimed global awards programme established to celebrate those dedicated to outstanding client service and expertise in the finance industry. The awards are sponsored by UK Business Circle and presented by media group Corporate LiveWire. The program champions the success of innovators and leaders across the global finance sector, with specialised category awards recognising achievements in Financial Services, Tax and Accountancy.

Andrea Michaels, a tax, corporate and family business specialist, established NDA Law in January 2015. Since then the firm has won swag of industry awards, including national nominations for Innovator of the Year, and also Executive of the Year (in the annual Women in Law awards). The firm now includes an expanding national client base providing advice in areas including tax, corporate structuring, IP, trademarks and consumer law.

Ms Michaels said it was an honour to be included as a global winner alongside international heavyweights like PwC, American Express and Merrill Lynch. 

“This is a great achievement for our firm. To win a place in the Corporate LiveWire Finance Awards recognises how a modern, innovative approach can lead to better outcomes for clients. It’s wonderful to see the work we’ve done to assist our partners in the corporate finance and accounting industries acknowledged in this way.

“We’ve worked hard to build a different model for legal services where we provide first class expertise with client service always at the heart of our enterprise. We’re finding our non-­traditional approach to how we structure our work and how we bill clients is really paying off.”

Each shortlisted award candidate was examined by the Judging Panel at Corporate LiveWire; with experts setting their sights firmly on the most client-­focused and dedicated teams and individuals. Each winner was handpicked based on merit and has shown excellence, great performance and dedication over the course of the year. Each individual is set to play an important role in the continued growth of the finance sector.
