office workers collaborating


“I have personally worked with NFP Lawyers for nearly 8 years, with my company having sought NFP legal counsel for over 10 years. I have found them to be responsive, professional in their dealings and experts in the provision of legal advice. The level of trust and respect built between Joanne and myself allows for open, honest and frank discussion. This level of interaction over the years ensures my legal counsel thoroughly understands our business needs, growth and opportunities, and as such they are able to provide guidance beyond what is typically considered the ‘legal domain’. Joanne and the team really know what it is like to walk in our shoes, and they work with my company to ensure we not only meet all legal obligations, but that the business and staff can excel at what we do.”
