Areas of specialisation
With Stage 4 Coronavirus restrictions having been imposed in the Melbourne metropolitan area for several weeks, there has been an impact to the way businesses are legally allowed to operate for the duration of this period.

Devastating bushfires plagued much of Eastern Australia last summer, before a deluge of rain arrived, causing severe flooding and widespread damage to an unprecedented number of properties - including residential strata.
In the aftermath of a flood, many depend on their insurance to help recoup losses. Sadly, stressful situations are often made worse when people discover their Strata Insurance policy does not cover damage as a result of flood.
