We are pleased to announce that associate Nafsika Palbas has been awarded the 2018 Lawyers Weekly’s 30 Under 30 Award in the category of Construction and Real Estate.

Entrants for the award were required to demonstrate strong performance in their areas of expertise in conjunction with acute business sense and client focus. Nafsika regularly acts on major property law transactions, significant in their complexity, monetary value and impact on the community.

In a booming market where the sky is the limit, Nafsika’s expertise in air rights in Victoria is an invaluable bonus for clients looking to capitalise on their assets value. Acquiring air rights is in some respects akin to acquiring physical land. As such, opportunities for acquisition, sale, subdivision or lease may be available to interested parties. By equal measure, issues may arise to complicate the transaction, for example questions of ownership within owners corporations and planning restrictions.

As an emerging and specialised area of property law, it is critical to receive expert advice from a law firm that is experienced in air rights transactions. For further information please see our Air Rights FAQs.

This award marks Nafsika’s continuing high performance after a strong 2017 where she was awarded the Victoria Young Property Lawyer of the Year Award and became an Accredited Property Lay Specialist. The Tisher Liner FC Property Law team were finalists in the 2017 Australian Law Awards team of the year.

For more information please contact Nafsika or any member of the Property Law Team.
