Paul’s clients say he is approachable and upfront and honest and straight down the line.

The main focus of the practice remains helping commercial clients. It does so in relation to providing legal advice for their business needs, with bolt on specialisations in property law, migration law, arts, media entertainment, modelling industry law and emerging innovative technology.
Ippolito Lawyers recognise the need for a solid and trusted legal advisor relationship as a core part of our service.
This extends to ensuring that returning phone calls and responding to emails occurs promptly.
Underpinning this is a strong view that legal work should be performed by legally qualified persons and not by administrative staff and vice versa.
