I have recently been involved in a conveyancing transaction with your firm. During the course of the transaction I had dealings with Mark McNally. I would like to express my appreciation for the friendly and courteous manner in which Mark handled the matter. He is to be heartily commended for his professionalism which in my experience distinguishes your firm from most other city practices and indeed suburban practices with which I have dealings. I am not one for handing out bouquets lightly but do so unreservedly in this case.

Litigation and dispute resolution

Mark, I wish to thank you for handling our case. Throughout we consider you to have been understanding, easy to talk to and informative - which has been extremely helpful to both of us. Further, you went to great lengths to understand the issues around the situation, and without your attention to details I don't we would have achieved the result we did.

Client, Jennifer


I write this letter to you in appreciation of your efforts in acting for my client and their purchase. Your knowledge and understanding of company title and conveyancing matter is nothing less than impressive. Never before have I seen a purchaser’s solicitor work so tirelessly and endlessly to achieve the desired outcome for all concerned. You are to be congratulated on your outstanding efforts and exceptional levels of professionalism. I would gladly recommend your services to any of my clients.

Real estate agent, Michael


Our sincere appreciation for handling our house sale so efficiently and smoothly. We both felt secure in the knowledge that your advice guided us through and made it so easy for us.

Client, Karen

Litigation and dispute resolution

The application arises out of an unusual set of facts. It raises some difficult legal issues of where the line falls between the federal courts invested with bankruptcy jurisdiction and other courts. It also raises the practical issues faced by unfunded insolvency practitioners in the face of those legal issues. The Court is grateful to the Inspector General in Bankruptcy for instructing Mr McNally of LM Lawyers to appear as amicus curiae and to Mr McNally for his highly useful contributions.
