NDA Law’s founder Andrea Michaels has earned a place once again in the 14th Edition of Best Lawyers in Australia 2021 for her work in commercial law, tax law and wealth management/succession planning.

The award comes after Ms Michaels was named Legal Professional of the Year (Australia) by the UK- based Corporate LiveWire Magazine and NDA Law was awarded ‘Best Boutique Law Firm in Australia’ by APAC Insider in 2020.

Achieving a coveted listing in Best Lawyers is considered a significant accolade in the legal industry. The awards are based entirely on peer reviews, with further research conducted into individuals and firms nominated. Annual listings in the guide have become the go-to for prospective clients looking for a summary of Australia’s best legal minds.

Ms Michaels was recognised for her deep expertise in all aspects of commercial law, tax law and wealth management/family business, and for her teaching role in the University of Adelaide’s Graduate Diploma in Legal Practice.

It is the eighth consecutive year that Ms Michaels has received a listing in the guide.

“I am honoured to be recognised once again by such a highly regarded publication. Achieving nominations by peers in this way is testimony to the fact that our new style of law is working. We are not afraid to put the client first,” Ms Michaels said.

“Becoming more focused on commercial outcomes and solutions for clients has become particularly relevant in 2020/21 as Australian businesses struggle under the challenges of COVID-19. I am proud that the entire NDA team under new managing director Joshua Davies has been there to assist many of our clients to find their way through a very challenging landscape.

“Having legal advisers with deep expertise who can build real relationships with clients to get business back on track is really essential at this time.”
