NDA Law specialists Andrea Michaels and Thea Birss have been singled out for their expertise in key fields as part of the peer-reviewed Best Lawyers list for Australia.

Andrea Michaels was recognised for her work in commercial law, tax law and succession planning, while Thea Birss was recommended for her labour and employment law practice.

The US-based Best Lawyers organisation compiles a list of the most outstanding lawyers and firms in their fields in key countries and is entirely based on peer reviews. It is the oldest award system of its kind and recommendations are an endorsement for knowledge, skills and professional service delivery.

The methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area.

Managing Director Andrea Michaels said she was thrilled that the experience and expertise of key players in the NDA Law team were recognised in the 13th edition of the list.

“A listing with Best Lawyers is highly regarded and I am pleased that our expertise has been recognised for the work we do here in South Australia and throughout the country.

“With COVID-19 now affecting nearly every business in the country, it is important to know you are working with the best in their fields. The Best Lawyers list gives clients that assurance. And we never fail to deliver on our promise to tailor our strategies to meet to the needs of SMEs and family businesses when facing key challenges.

“Our peers have nominated us because they know our unique approach for SMEs works. We see ourselves as partners with our clients helping to find solutions to complex legal problems in the most cost-effective manner.
