A leading Darwin legal practice will officially open its doors in Winnellie today
Roussos Legal Advisory draws on more than twenty years’ experience and will offer practical and workable solutions to businesses, insurers and government.
Located in Darwin’s industrial suburb of Winnellie, Roussos Legal Advisory offers services in commercial matters, business litigation, dispute management, workers compensation and occupational health and safety.
When asked about his location, George said the answer was simple, “this is business land”.
“Our firm is designed around business and serving business clients. We sought to make a statement by locating among our peers.
“We offer a convenient and flexible service with the cost savings that arise from dealing with someone who understands the customers’ business.
“The Territory market for legal advice is small, but it is still sophisticated and demands the skills and knowledge businesses require everywhere.
“Businesses demand specialised legal advice, they want it quickly and at an affordable cost, the skill comes from being able to deliver that advice commensurate with the legal and business issue at hand,” he said.
George’s experience includes advising and conducting litigation for clients in a number of industries, such as insurance, mining and resources, electricity, construction and property and tourism.
He understands firsthand the pressures, challenges and responsibilities that face executive teams and boards.
As a business manager and owner, George’s perspective and counsel is built along strong legal, commercial, strategic and management lines.
He has served on many committees and business associations, including four years as President of the Northern Territory Chamber of Commerce (2007 – 2011).
For a new business, 2013 is looking good. Roussos Legal Advisory has already been selected by Darwin City Council for its legal panel.
George has assembled a quality team, selecting people to work with him for their ability to understand the needs and requirements of business.
The firm has also been involved in some significant legal matters including representing a business in a coronial inquiry involving mining, defending the Northern Territory’s first prosecution of environmental nuisance on a construction site (under the Waste Management and Pollution Control Act) and defending a marine business arising out of an incident in the harbour.
In 2012 the practice was involved in the settlement of one of Australia's largest workers compensation claims.
“We have exceeded expectations and we are grateful for the support our clients have provided us. Establishing strong working relationships is essential to providing business services no matter how big or small that business may be.”
