  • An excellent job... Very hard working, great output and fun to work with.

    Meyrick Cox, Partner
    Rothschild
  • A very determined lawyer who provides legal advice that is appropriate having regard to the commercial context, but also elegant when considered purely from a legal perspective. Her business acumen is outstanding.

    Leif Gamertsfelder, Executive General Manager
    Commonwealth Bank of Australia
  • It has been great working with My-Linh and her team. Metis Law helped us with our business [contracts]. They made recommendations that we have never thought of before. My-Linh is always up front with cost so there are no surprises when we receive our invoices. I highly recommend her team.

    Henry Chow, Managing Director
    Motionwave Technologies
  • A knowledgeable and pragmatic lawyer who was focused on achieving outcomes which were workable for everyone involved in negotiations.

    Michael Dalby, Legal Manager
    Australian Stock Exchange
  • I find My-Linh refreshingly clear with communication and execution of anything I require. It can be difficult to find a lawyer who isn't a time-watcher, and you can tell My-Linh is focused solely on the outcome for the benefit of her client. It's hard to imagine enjoying working with a Lawyer, but I can honestly say I do in this case.

    Bob Greenup, Executive Director
    BNI Sydney CBD
  • My-Linh was quick to understand the brief and asked clear, insightful questions to inform the structure of the agreements and drive commercial considerations we had not previously considered. Importantly, My-Linh speaks and writes in plain English - not 'legalese' and completed the project well ahead of our projected timelines and produced a clear, concise and commercially effective set of contracts.

    Michael Field, Managing Director
    Michael Field Strategic Marketing Consultants
  • I have been blown away by My-Linh's attention to detail and professionalism. The details provided by the other party where limited as they where time poor. My-Linh recognised this and altered her approach to get what I needed to complete the transaction. I have and will continue to refer My-Linh and her team.

    Adrian Fadini, Director
    Trained To Sell
