As an experienced senior corporate insolvency and turnaround expert I have a high demand for timely and accurate commercial legal advice. Over the last several years or so, I have on a number of occasions engaged Ben O’Hearn from O’Hearn Lawyers to provide specialist commercial legal advice and represent me when necessary. I have found Ben to be accessible, hands on with his team crafting practical and sound legal solutions, and responsive to my urgent enquiry. Ben and his team are also prepared to work with you to ensure OHL’s legal fees represent value for money. I highly recommend Ben O’Hearn to anyone looking for a good honest commercial lawyer, whether it be a one-off transaction, or to become part of your trusted circle of advisers.

O’Hearn Lawyers have supported my business and myself in multiple cases over the past 6 years, from a business share sale, property sales & subdivisions, commercial contract reviews and industrial litigation. Ben O’Hearn and his team have assisted my business and me personally through some extremely difficult and technical legal matters and I would have no hesitation in recommending O’Hearn Lawyers.

"I've used O'Hearn Lawyers for my business for many years now, and though our contact is infrequent, my experience has always been positive. What I appreciate most is their 'real world' advice, rather than advice that simply increases their own billable hours. They're highly experienced and excellent at what they do, but they're rational and honest also, and I always feel they have our best interests at heart."
