Nexus Law Group has appointed respected lawyer Michael Perkins as head of private client services.
He brings with him special counsel, Clarence Leung, and senior solicitor, Jana Sosner, in relocating from Perkins Fahey Rosenblum Lawyers.
His new role at Nexus will see him lead a team of experts in all aspects of estate planning, family enterprise governance, succession planning, conflict and dispute resolution, social and community contribution and associated areas.
Perkins says Nexus Law Group's relationship-based business focus is the ideal platform to grow a competitive private practice.
"Nexus represents a next generation law firm already focused on relationship-based business and collaboration as a value driver for clients," he says.
"It is the perfect platform from which we continue to scale a globally competitive private client practice that matches its peers in the network of firms that are represented through the Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners."
Perkins is a co-author of the widely respected text, Estate Planning: a practical guide for estate and financial services professionals and contributing author to the text Financial Planning in Australia 4th, 5th and 6th editions.
"Robert Monahan and I have been writing and teaching in this field for more than 15 years and the texts we support are now widely used for University level education and a broad range of professional advisers," he says.
"We have helped move community attitudes away from the view that estate planning is just dealing with a person's will.
"We helped reshape community and professional understanding that estate planning is not just about death or dying, but the ability to develop a deeper understanding of a client before crafting a solution to meet their needs."
