Director Andrew Mellett said the firm had continued to experience growth in the market and in recent months had added an additional 10 staff, including support staff and lawyers. “We have seen the Australian legal industry mature in its adoption of alternative legal services,” said Mellett. “Instead of growing internal legal teams, many of our clients are coming to us when they have a significant project on or a spike in demand.”
