Our clients mean everything for us.
Next Legal and Conveyancing has risen to the challenge of an unprecedented year after being named Start Up Superstar at the 2020 Hunter Business Chamber Awards last Friday.
The win follows in the wake of taking out the Start Up Superstar Award at the Lake Macquarie Business Excellence Awards last month.
The young Lake Macquarie law firm is also a finalist in the Local Business Awards with the ceremony to be held at Belmont 16 Footers in December.
"Of course, we will be hoping for a trifecta," solicitor and director of Next Legal and Conveyancing Alicia Floyer said.
Next Legal & Conveyancing was established in September, 2018 to offer something different and to shake up the traditional approach of a law firm. As the name suggests, a next generation law firm.
The firm has quickly established a reputation for getting results based on client communication, being tech savvy and available when clients need them.
"We strongly believe that, by delivering on all these aspects, we make the legal process easier for our clients," she said.
"Next is a tech savvy, results-driven firm comfortable servicing the needs of people across all demographics with a focus on client satisfaction."
Alicia says the latest recognition at the Hunter Business Chamber Awards was reward for all the hard work to get the business to where it is today.
"All the early starts, the late nights, the seven days a week is just so worth it to win such a prestigious award," she said. "In terms of the business, it is recognition for the entire team.
"The hard work and commitment of every single member of my team amazes me every day. We were so excited to celebrate our win together.
"My message for the night was, we are all experiencing very challenging times as business owners as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, it is a time like no other.
"No one could have prepared for what we have experienced in 2020.
"It doesn't matter what you go through in life, as long as you put your heart, your mind and your soul to it you can achieve anything you so desire, the world is your oyster.
"It is very demanding being a solicitor let alone being a business owner but to see that my hard work is being recognised by people outside my business is truly humbling."
The firm has now expanded to eight staff members in total, including Alicia, four solicitors, an accounts manager, a trainee receptionist and one para-legal.
"We are also expanding our team and on the hunt for a practice manager and legal assistant," Alicia said. "We aren't stopping here.
"We have the scope to grow with clients' needs and can take advantage of the fact that they may require our services for many reasons over their lifetime, such as buying or selling property, estate planning, separation, death etc. Our clients mean everything to us."
