What Paul’s clients say

Nicholsons have represented the developers on numerous projects that I have been involved in. I have always found them quick to act, totally thorough with any clauses and great at following up the buyers solicitors. When other law firms are just sending emails, my contacts at Nicholsons are only too happy to get on the phone to try and sort out any potential or actual problems. On a personal note, I have used Paul Morris from Nicholsons for 20 + years and find he is a cut above the rest in property. He started out as my lawyer for my development company and I now consider him a close personal friend.

We were first introduced to Nicholsons Solicitors and Paul Morris about 15 years ago by our Brisbane based agent to act for our clients when purchasing properties in Queensland. The advice to these clients was always very thorough and delivered in a timely fashion. If clients had any legal queries we were always very comfortable to get them to speak to Paul direct so that he could explain the specific implications for them. As the experience was so good for our clients we decided about 5 years ago to engage Nicholsons to act for us in the acquisition of sites and to manage all our conveyancing requirements. We continue to have a strong relationship with Paul and the rest of the team at Nicholsons and would recommend them highly.

I have been a client of Nicholson’s for over 25 years and have been extremely satisfied with my relationship over that time. Paul Morris has been my direct contact over all these years and has always provided sound advice for all my legal matters, whether that be commercial or needs for my family. In particular I appreciate being able to talk to a ‘principal’ when I call and if needed support in other areas from the other partners is always available.

For over 7 years I have been very fortunate to have Nicholsons and in particular Troy Hawthorn & Paul Morris looking after my best interests, covering the entire scope of my legal requirements from complex commercial litigation to property transactions and planning law. Good old fashion commercial advice in plain English, with fast response times and personal service, I highly recommend!
