Having laws in place to govern certain transactions and regulate certain relationships is a universal concept, however, how these transactions are governed and relationships regulated may be very much dictated by geographical location.

Laws may differ from country to country, state to state or even region to region so when it comes to certain legal matters and issues, including property law transactions and commercial law endeavours, the advice and expertise of a local, specialised lawyer could be a huge advantage. 

There are a number of advantages to hiring a local lawyer:

  1. Local Knowledge: Australia is governed by federal law and state or territorial law. These laws may differ or be applied differently, depending on the jurisdiction within which you are resident, conducting business, buying or selling property, or providing services. Consulting with a local property or commercial lawyer will ensure that you get accurate, local-based advice that’s relevant. 
  2. Meeting with you Lawyer: Face-to-face meetings can be critical when dealing with certain financial and legal transactions. Ease of communication and that personal touch will not only go a long way to allaying any concerns, they also promote better communication and you will benefit from a thorough explanation of any pertinent technical or legal matters which may be of concern, as opposed to receiving such information over the phone or via email.
  3. Less hassle at a critical time: When dealing with a local law firm you will, most likely, be dealing with the same person/s and not an advisor over the phone. You will be able to seek direct, independent advice, usually without delay, whilst knowing exactly who you are dealing with and who is handling your matter within the firm. The personal touch often afforded by local lawyers is a great way to build a good working relationship based on trust and respect.

Some legal matters really are just best dealt with locally and there are numerous advantages to back this up, including access to a local lawyer who is knowledgeable about local, state and federal law, familiar with local legal procedures, has numerous local contacts and is conveniently located on your doorstep.
