What Troy’s clients say

I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with Stephen Robertson and Troy Hawthorn at Nicholsons, over an extended period. Amongst other things, Stephen and Troy helped me handle a stressful trademark dispute in a very efficient and professional manner, to achieve a positive outcome.

Working with Troy and the team we have built long standing, multi-tiered relationships within their business. Troy is our go to for leadership on a range of commercial matters, while Paul and Matt have successfully guided us through complex property developments. Nicholsons have been supporting our business for over 15 years, they’re a well-rounded and experienced firm that have our explicit trust.

Luke Maguire, Evermore

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!
