Welcome to Gibbs Advisory

A boutique legal, mediation and advisory firm

Melbourne City Gibbs Advisory

Welcome! It is with great pleasure that I am launching Gibbs Advisory, a boutique legal, mediation and advisory firm. After 25+ years as a commercial lawyer, legal educator and environmental advocate, it’s exciting to be able to offer you the highest quality advice, practical solutions and great value for money, all with personal and confidential attention.

I have started Gibbs Advisory to fill a need in the market for specialised legal services in the areas of environment, planning, water, waste and sustainability law, together with cost-effective mediation, research and policy advice. Legal requirements are always changing and new obligations are being placed on business more and more onerously, especially in the environmental space. As examples, take the new Victorian Environment Protection Act, due to come into force 1 July 2021, and the Victorian Government’s recent proposal for a new waste and recycling Act and waste authority.

It’s hard to keep up, I know! That’s where we can help. Get in touch (by phone or email) if you need specialised advice or in-house training. Or sign up to our newsletter and stay up to date with the latest legal developments in this area. We will also post regular blogs, so keep checking the website.

Legal and Mediation Services in times of COVID-19 pandemic

I am particularly excited about being able to offer remote dispute resolution through online mediation. COVID-19 has forced change on us all and caused a growing number of disputes as we all try to navigate a new way forward. Mediation is a fantastic method for dispute resolution where the parties need to work out a practical solution that allows them to preserve their relationship. Court is a last resort, not just because of the cost (try flushing a $100 bills down the toilet for five minutes and you’ll get the gist of what it feels like!), but also because it doesn’t offer the parties an opportunity to be in control of the solution. If you would like to discuss your case with us to see how Meditation could help resolve it, please call or email us. I’ll also be writing more about mediation in upcoming blogs.

Why partnering with Gibbs Advisory makes sense

Gibbs Advisory offers excellent value for money. We do this by keeping our overheads low. We run our business as you would run your own: efficiently, carefully, and modestly. We don’t spend money on extravagant office fit-outs or butler service, or on overseas travel. This means that not only do we keep our fees at a very reasonable level, but you get direct access to the expert.

So, if you:

  • are the kind of client who chooses your advisors carefully, who likes a personal touch, a lawyer that knows your business;
  • are the kind of person who likes to be able to speak with the expert when you need them and someone who listens and understands your needs;
  • value a responsive, quick turnaround; or
  • want legal advice that is absolutely correct but also practical and commercial, and that clearly sets out what you need to do to deal with your situation,

……then we would love to hear from you.

Whether engaging Gibbs Advisory for legal advice, mediation services or bespoke advisory, you will benefit from Meredith’s experience and expertise, recognised for over 10 years in Australia’s Best Lawyers.

Gibbs Advisory looks forward to partnering with you.
