MST Lawyers Recognised In 2019 Who’s Who Legal

The international publication Who’s Who Legal, through independent research and peer review, has recognised MST Lawyers and four of its lawyers as the stand out firm in Australia in franchising law. 

Philip Colman (who heads our Dispute Resolution and Litigation practice group) is named as one of four “most highly regarded” franchising lawyers in Australia.  The publication states:

“Philip Colman is ‘one of the foremost franchise lawyers in the country. He enjoys a stellar reputation in the market for his work advising franchisors and franchisees on contentious matters including breach of contract claims.”

Raynia Theodore (who heads our Franchise practice group) is described as “a go-to name for franchise matters in Australia”. Raynia’s work is focused around “franchise developments, supply agreements and negotiations”.

Alicia Hill (a member of our Dispute Resolution and Litigation practice group) is described as “a well recognised name among peers and clients alike”. Alicia is described as being “very strong on the litigation side”.

John Sier (who heads our Corporate practice group) is regarded highly as a result of his ”strong expertise in franchise structuring and related transactions”.

To have four out of a total of 29 recognised franchising lawyers in Australia emphasises the reputation MST Lawyers has in the market.  This has come from decades of learning and interest in the franchise sector domestically and internationally and a conscious decision made in 1990 to be a genuinely specialist boutique firm in this area.

MST Lawyers is grateful for the acknowledgement of Who’s Who Legal, as well as the efforts of our staff, the trust of our clients and the recognition from our peers.
