Originally, Paul Pritchard opened his practice in the Menai area as ‘Paul Pritchard & Co.’ in the Bangor Shopping Centre in 1978.
At the time, the area consisted of a residential development at Bangor surrounded mostly by undeveloped bushland. The firm developed and grew with the expansion and development of the area which grew into Menai, Barden Ridge, Alfords Point and Illawong.
Refined an Advanced Process
During this time, the firm built on its experiences, constantly reviewing its processes, building on what was done before and improving and implementing constant change for the better
A Loyal Client Base
Having practiced in the area for 40 years, we have developed a strong client base with an inter-generational connection with many clients and their families.
Well Organised and Efficient Practice
The sole practitioner has morphed into a well organised and efficient legal team with many years of experience in dealing with family law/relationship breakdown matters, commercial transactions such as buying and selling businesses, leasing and commercial disputes, commercial litigation, succession planning, wills, probate, estate claims and civil litigation.
In acting for our clients, we make it a point to engage with our client to understand what is most important to them. With our many years of experience we are able to untangle the sometimes confusing matrix of facts, circumstances and legal issues and see clearly the best result for our client.
Because of our many years of experience helping our clients with all sorts of personal, family and business matters, we have a great depth of expertise which we can offer in such diverse things as neighbourhood disputes, personal loans between family members and people and businesses, employment advice, elder law, retirement accommodation and more.
Sometimes it is just a phone call to address a niggling worry. Sometimes it is a quick consultation. The important thing is that we are always happy to help our clients and if we cannot help in a particular area, we are always glad to make a referral to another professional with expertise in that particular area.
We care and our clients know it, which is why we get so many personal recommendations by our clients.
