NEXUS Law Group has taken out the Australian Law Awards' Boutique Law Firm of the Year, winning out against a number of national firms at the event held in Sydney.
The award, open to all boutique firms based in Australia, recognises practices which pioneer new business models and challenge the structure and culture of traditional firms.
Founder of Nexus Law Group, Marcus McCarthy, says it was an honour to have been recognised as the winner of such a competitive category.
"This award is in recognition of the calibre of work we are delivering to clients and the manner in which we deliver it," McCarthy says.
"Clients are a core focus of our approach and the reason why we are reshaping the structure of the traditional law firm."
Nexus operates as a 'dispersed' law firm, utilising a cloud-based practice management system which allows lawyers to collaborate over a national platform.
McCarthy believes the firm's innovative approach offers clients a better, more efficient service.
"We are working hard to change the legal landscape and impart a positive transformation in which clients get direct access to highly experienced, specialist practitioners in a highly flexible and cost effective client delivery system," he says.
"We are one of the few so-called 'NewLaw' businesses delivering a fundamentally beneficial restructure of the law firm itself, so to have our approach recognised in this way is a fantastic achievement."
