MST Lawyers Recognised In 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 ‘a big name’ in the market who is internationally recognised as a ‘leader in franchise matters’.  Sources name him as ‘one of the best practitioners in the area’ and are quick to highlight his ‘excellent client manner’”

Raynia Theodore (who heads our Franchise practice group) is described as “excellent” and “highly respected” who “regularly acts for well-known domestic clients, as well as international franchisors expanding into the Australian market”.

Alicia Hill (a member of our Dispute Resolution and Litigation practice group) is described as “a superb lawyer” who is “very well respected in the market thanks to her excellent track record handling franchise disputes” and that commentators describe her as “a strong litigator”.

John Sier (who heads our Corporate practice group) is described as having a very high profile with one peer calling him “the guru” in the franchise space” being “frequently sought out by major American and Asian companies to advise on the establishment of distribution networks.

To have four out of total of twenty-six 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 truly 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.
