What is Specialist Accreditation?
Specialist Accreditation is earned under the Law Society’s Specialist Accreditation Scheme. It is bestowed upon practising lawyers with demonstrated expertise in a practice area.
How does having an Accredited Specialist benefit you?
Irrespective of whether your legal matters are of a commercial or personal nature, they can be complex, emotional and often highly stressful. Having an Accredited Specialist such as Hadi or Karina on your team means that you will receive specialist advice so that you can achieve the very best outcome for your matter.
Strict criteria need to be met in order to become an Accredited Specialist. In order to receive the qualification, Hadi and Karina:
- Have been practising for a minimum of five years, in a fulltime capacity;
- Have been practising in their respective areas of law for a minimum of three years; and,
- Passed the Law Society’s assessments determining level of expertise.
Importantly, like our other Accredited Specialists in our Property Law, Litigation & Disputes, and Family Law teams, Hadi and Karina will maintain their Accreditation annually - including remaining up-to-date with their skillset and knowledge in their areas of law.
Warrick McLean, CEO, said that the Specialist Accreditation is testament to the hard work and dedication Hadi and Karina have shown.
“The firm is lucky to have two talented lawyers who are committed to being the best that they can be in their areas of law and we’ve been proud to support them in achieving their goals."
“We look forward to their continued career development.”
