26 June 2020

For the eighth consecutive year, O’Sullivan Davies Lawyers has been listed as a First Tier Firm in the 2020 Doyle’s Guide for Western Australian Family Law rankings.

The Doyle’s Guide is a global publication that ranks leading lawyers and law firms compiled by undertaking independent research based on reviews by clients, peers and relevant industry bodies.

Six of the firm’s lawyers, Trevor O’Sullivan, Andrew Davies, James Claringbold, Nicola Watts, Nicola Jansen and Ryan van der Merwe, were individually named across five rankings for excellence in Family Law with individual honours in the areas of High Value/Complex matters, Parenting matters and Mediation.

O’Sullivan Davies Lawyers partner Nicola Watts says that the firm’s uncompromising commitment to excellence has once again paid dividends.

“Our client focused approach with excellence at the core of everything we do, applied across all areas including service, knowledge and practice, is why we deliver outstanding results for our clients,” says Ms Watts.

“The Doyle’s Guide recognition is very rewarding and validates our work. There are extremely few First Tier Family Law Firms in the Doyle’s Guide and we’re thrilled to be at the forefront, leading the industry,” says Ms Watts.

“Equally thrilling is to have six of our lawyers awarded by the Doyle’s Guide, showcasing our expertise in all aspects of Family Law. I’m proud of our entire team”.

“Above all, it’s a privilege to be in a position to help families to prevent or resolve disputes and whenever possible, settle out of court.”
