Our clients

Our lawyers are approachable, down-to-earth and caring. We are big on experience and capacity but small enough to build personal relationships with our clients.

We immerse ourselves in your issue and our personal approach is evident in what our clients say about us.

Our ‘one team’ approach allows us to forge close working relationships with our clients. Through our dedicated teams we go that extra step to achieve consistent outcomes and share ‘lessons learned’. Being smaller in size than our competitors, we can offer more strategic, cost-efficient solutions to your legal issues.

We work with leading local and overseas insurers, some of Australia’s most prominent companies and organisations, a large number of professional member associations as well as literally hundreds of individual healthcare practitioners.

Our lawyers generously give their time to get to know our clients and their industries better. This is highlighted through our participation on many industry committees and as guest speakers at client conferences.

  • “Whilst I would never have chosen to be in the position I have found myself to be in, I consider myself fortunate to have come to know and deal with Kellie Dell’Oro. Her absolute professionalism, integrity, palpable expertise and compassion are sincerely appreciated. She has been able to alleviate much of the stress associated with an inherently stressful process and for that I am truly grateful.”

    Physiotherapist, Victoria

  • “I would not hesitate to recommend Meridian Lawyers. Their service has been both professional and personalised – I could not have hoped for better legal support than I have received. Should I need legal advice again, Meridian Lawyers would most definitely be my first choice.”
