NDA Law's Managing Director named Australia's best succession planning expert in global awards.

NDA Law’s Managing Director Andrea Michaels has won a global award for Australia’s best succession planning lawyer in a prestigious list published this week.


The UK-based Corporate LiveWire Legal Awards is a highly acclaimed global awards programme established to provide international recognition to lawyers dedicated to outstanding client service and expertise in key practice areas. Entrants are nominated by clients and winners selected based on their achievements and strengths over the year. Award winners will now take a spot in a coveted online listing and directory to be distributed around the world.

Speaking on her win this week as Australia’s top succession planning lawyer, Ms Michaels said it was an honour shared by her entire team and the award was testimony to the importance of delivering outstanding client service in challenging economic times.

“This is a truly great achievement for our firm and demonstrates our commitment to working hard to exceed our clients’ expectations.

“We’re very proud to be recognised as the best in Australia for such an important area of legal services. The value of succession planning is often overlooked, but it’s vitally important to the ongoing prosperity of thousands of businesses around Australia, especially as a large percentage of business owners are looking at retirement in the next ten years.”


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, and intellectual property and consumer law.


The 2016 Corporate LiveWire global Legal Services directory will be distributed to more than 500,000 legal professionals and will be available in all of Swissport’s Aspire airport lounges worldwide.
