We value our staff and provide opportunities for our staff to advance their legal careers within the workplace. A few of our staff members have been working at the firm for decades. We are proud of the loyalty from our staff. We are also proud to have supported some staff with tertiary legal education and admission to legal practice.
Safe custody documents
Our firm provides our clients with secure and confidential storage of their important legal documents such as wills, powers of attorney, certificates of title and deeds. These documents are stored in our fire proof safe and are recorded in our register of documents held in safe custody. The safe custody register records when the deeds are deposited and the particulars of the deeds. If the deeds are released the details of when and who the documents are released to are also recorded.
These deeds are the property of our clients. We only release a client’s documents to our client, or other party on our client’s authority or as provided by law. Prior to release, we require verification of identity.
