In a time where many of us are conducting business online, we think it’s important to put a face to a name. Our Staff Spotlight series will give you a little insight into the lives of our Nicholsons colleagues. Let’s find out a bit more about Paralegal, Tait Lawsen.
What does your job entail?
I facilitate the sale or purchase of residential and commercial property, including both existing and proposed lots.
I assist with a variety of other matters, including development work, leasing, business purchases and research in seemingly random areas of law as the need crops up across the firm.
What’s the most exciting thing you are working on right now?
Helping my mother buy a house!
What made you choose a career in law?
My last name.
Well, maybe that’s only partly true. I grew up working in real estate, and was in my 4th year of a law/business double, so it seemed the natural progression.
After working in real estate and law, maybe I will try my hand as a used-car salesman to complete the trifecta of highly regarded and respected jobs.
What’s the best part of your job?
The best part of the job is the final phone call letting the client know that everything has gone through. We have a pretty good ratio so we must be doing something right!
What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
Probably a professional footballer. It was a tough call to make, but I settled on being a property paralegal just to be closer to home.
What’s something you’re planning on doing in the next year that you’ve never done before?
I will be road-tripping New Zealand’s south island!
If you could meet anyone in the world, dead or alive, who would it be and why?
I mean it’s tough to not say Jesus. At the very least, a very interesting conversation (I assume he would speak fluent English, otherwise it might be tough as my Aramaic is a little rusty).
What do you like to do when you aren’t working?
Unfortunately (or fortunately), I dream about work and spend every spare moment brainstorming as to how better serve our clients and the greater Brisbane area.
