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.

Recently I was in need of legal advice and a friend referred me to Maryanne McGrath. Maryanne was very helpful in my matter and took considerable time to work through all aspects of my problem. With her advice I was able to make a decision regarding my enquiry. I feel that the decision I made was an informed one and covered all of my concerns. I found Maryanne to be very professional in her approach to me and my matter. She also took the time to listen and discuss all of my concerns. Nothing was rushed and I was given time to feel comfortable with my decision. Also during the course of our meetings, several other issues arose and we were able to address those as well. Thank you Maryanne.

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.
