Celebrating its 19th year, the Australian Law Awards, in partnership with UNSW Law, is the pinnacle of award programs for the nation’s legal professionals, recognising individual, team and firm excellence in law, from the profession’s most senior ranks to its rising stars.

The finalist list, which was announced on 24 June, features over 350 high-achieving law professionals across 37 categories.

“The Australian Law Awards is the largest and most competitive awards program hosted by Lawyers Weekly,” said editor Emma Ryan.

“The event recognises the outstanding work taking place across major legal practice areas, brilliance at the bar, legal in-house powerhouse, innovators and various firm-led pro bono programs, offering an opportunity for some of the most dedicated people in the profession to be recognised for their valuable contributions to the business of law.

“With so many submissions, I’d like to personally congratulate all of the finalists who made the cut. The work you do is second to none and we’re so looking forward to celebrating it with you at this year’s event.”

This is the third year running that Tisher Liner FC Law Property Team have been recognised, and the second for the Commercial Team. TLFC Law were also finalists in this year’s Law Institute of Victoria Awards in the category of medium sized firm. Rob Oxley joins colleagues Jonathan Tisher, Michael Fetter, Phillip Leaman and Nafsika Starvaggi who have all been recognised for their contributions to the legal community and within their specific practice areas over the past few years.

Rob Oxley, Senior Associate at TLFC Law, said he was humbled to be recognised and proud to be a part of such an exclusive network.

“Tisher Liner’s recognition for its excellent contribution to both the property industry and greater business community reinforces the strength of the greater team in connecting with the community and engaging with our clients.” Jonathan Tisher added.
