The evo­lu­tion of a legal team, intro­duc­ing Swaab’s team ser­vic­ing the prop­er­ty industry

The pace of trans­for­ma­tion, increased vol­ume and com­plex­i­ty of projects has con­tin­ued unabat­ed with­in the prop­er­ty sec­tor. As one of the fir­m’s fastest grow­ing teams, our team ser­vic­ing the prop­er­ty indus­try has seen a grow­ing demand over the past 24-months across the full spec­trum of prop­er­ty services.

Diver­si­fi­ca­tion and the intro­duc­tion of new exper­tise and expe­ri­ence into the team to meet this grow­ing demand has result­ed in an increase in flex­i­bly and agility. 

Hav­ing this flex­i­bil­i­ty enables our team to be more strate­gic, equipped to respond to queries across mul­ti­ple legal dis­ci­plines, have the com­mer­cial knowl­edge to sup­port the advice and pro­vide tan­gi­ble solu­tions. Their expe­ri­ence cov­ers the gamut of ser­vices required to effec­tive­ly car­ry out com­plex devel­op­ment projects and large scale indus­tri­al, com­mer­cial and rur­al trans­ac­tions as well as sup­port­ing day-to-day needs.

Many of our long-term clients in the prop­er­ty indus­try have com­plex and chal­leng­ing work and this rep­re­sents a sig­nif­i­cant part of Swaab’s prac­tice. It’s these clients that have been the back­bone of Swaab’s con­tin­ued success. 

In each year since 2017, Swaab has been recog­nised by the Doyles Guide as a Rec­om­mend­ed Prop­er­ty & Real Estate Law Firm. In those years, key part­ners with­in the team includ­ing Mary Digiglio, Emma Flem­ing and Tony D’Agostino have con­sis­tent­ly received indi­vid­ual Doyles Guide awards for Prop­er­ty & Real Estate, Leas­ing, Devel­op­ment, Plan­ning & Environment. 

The suc­cess­ful work­ing rela­tion­ship has large­ly been the result of main­tain­ing a focus on the team’s col­lec­tive well­be­ing and embrac­ing a cross-serv­ing approach to meet­ing client needs. This allows for the full project life-cycle man­age­ment of a clien­t’s mat­ter, from cra­dle to grave. It also means, when required, for the quick real­lo­ca­tion of resources to sup­port our clien­t’s requirements. 

Man­ag­ing Part­ner Mary Digiglio said, The fir­m’s cul­ture has always enabled col­lab­o­ra­tion and the cre­ation of strong team bonds. In short, this has meant we can deliv­er on our promis­es when ser­vic­ing our clients. It’s our peo­ple’s cumu­la­tive expe­ri­ence and exper­tise com­bined with real team­work that sets us apart in the mar­ket­place. More impor­tant­ly, our cul­ture comes nat­u­ral­ly and it’s this our clients appre­ci­ate, as a strong cul­ture will always matter.”
