Hi, my name is Ersel, and I am the Principal Lawyer, Founder and Director of Lawthentic.

I am a senior commercial and corporate lawyer with over 20 years’ experience working with SMEs and global businesses in Australia and across the Asia Pacific region.

I am a business enabler, a critical thinker and an interpreter of the law who believes in helping clients make Real Progress.

I have been in business, trade, and commerce for over three decades across a number of industries including hospitality, retail, insurance, telecommunications, health, and fitness and of course law.

I am empathetic and sincere and speak from experience when dealing with clients.

I am uncompromising when it comes to quality and unapologetically committed to getting the best possible outcomes for my clients.

Having started my career at top-tier US and Australian law firms, I am an accomplished, specialist and progressive legal advisor who is uncompromisingly dedicated to my clients.

Over the years, I have worked across corporate, commercial, litigation and property law and have represented SMEs, multinational corporations, high net worth individuals and public figures.

My approach is to quickly identify and assess the key legal and commercial issues and then deliver strategic advice that is clear, concise, client-focused, and always with practical real-world application.

I combine my significant legal expertise with an in-depth knowledge of trade, commerce, and industry.

I am proactive, highly commercial and a creative problem-solver. My value-driven approach and experience in dynamic environments makes me an integral part of my clients’ business.

As a result of my value-driven approach, I provide:

  • A free no obligation discovery consult for each new enquiry
  • Transparency
  • Fixed fees and competitive rates
  • An honest conversation about costs
  • Quick turnaround times
  • A guarantee to keep clients updated
  • Always respond within 1 business day
  • Commercial law expertise
  • Guarantee of a senior lawyer
  • Pragmatic, commercial, and collaborative approach

My practice comprises of mergers, acquisitions, corporate governance and structuring, all forms of commercial contracts, complex, technical, and cross-border transactions, advisory, regulatory compliance, and dispute resolution with a special interest in intellectual property, data protection, technology products and services and digital media.

I assist clients in putting robust systems in place that help safeguard against future issues, mitigate risk, and encourage growth.

With extensive media training and experience in television, radio, and print, I have appeared as a legal commentator on Channel 7’s Sunrise, provided commentary to The Sydney Morning Herald and drafted articles that have been published in various industry magazines.

Outside of being a lawyer

I am a dog lover, passionate about health, fitness and sports and believe an essential ingredient to living the ‘sweet life’ is excellent food and wine.
