What our clients say

Alan Swarbrick
Director, H Dallas Industries Pty Ltd

I have worked with Michael Tzirtzilakis for over 30 years where he has advised and represented our company H Dallas Industries Pty Ltd and me personally in all maters from Construction Contacts, HR, Unfair dismissals, Debt recovery, Property purchases and many other issues where legal advice was needed. I think it’s rare to find a Lawyer that is so accessible and responsive when help is needed with a great understanding of the Construction Industry. I happily recommend Michael to any business owner or individual that is looking for legal advice and look forward to continue working with Michael in his own practice.

Andrew Jones
Former Vice President BMG Production Music, Asia Pacific

I’ve had Michael by my legal side for many years. He’s whip-smart, quick-thinking, a tactical genius, and was a dominant player in my recent business sale. If you need the best, here he is.

Andrew Lewy
Director, Forest Print Services

The thing I loved about working with Michael is that he genuinely cares about achieving the right result. My commercial lease negotiations were complex and had many twists and turns, not to mention very tight deadlines – however nothing was too difficult or too much trouble for Michael. The lease was signed on Christmas eve and I went on holidays happy and relieved everything had been finalised properly – I would highly recommend Michael to anyone who is in the process of securing a new commercial lease.

Paul Greenberg
Company Director and Entrepreneur

I am delighted to provide these notes of commendation for Michael Tzirtzilakis and the outstanding work legal advice and support Michael has provided to me. Our relationship goes back over two decades and he has acted for me, in my personal capacity, as well as professional capacity. Michael was very instrumental in supporting the journey of DealsDirect, a pioneer online retailer, which I co-founded in 2004. His mandate was broad and included not only the full suite of business legal services, but also a number of initiatives crucial to risk management and protection in the fast-growing digital space. Michael is an outstanding practitioner, with the highest levels of service and personal and professional values. I recommend his services, without hesitation or reservation.

Michael is direct, professional and trustworthy on his judgment with legal matters.

Phil Patelis
Founder, Aibl

Michael has provided outstanding service as my lawyer for many years, to my old company (now acquired) and in my present business. There have been vast amounts of work across commercial and employment law completed to an exceptional degree that has served us well.  In addition, we have had some challenging situations to deal with, and at these times, it can be not easy to have clarity. In these times, Michael helped put our minds at ease and navigated us through the situations exceeding all expectations.  Michael has high levels of integrity and has a unique ability to simplify complex cases into an easily understood form. His integrity, honesty and great personality are a great combination and why I will never look elsewhere for legal counsel.
