MEET THE TEAM

(Written by our lawyers, about their colleagues, just for you)

Malisa Howard

PRINCIPAL SOLICITOR

On a mission to do things differently, Malisa founded Jaide Law in 2016. Since then, she's built the firm up to be what you see today - a thriving support system for Jaide Law's clients, business partners and staff. 

 

 Our clients know Malisa for her thorough, clear and commercial approach to law and her attention to detail (skills only overshadowed by her ability to consume world-record portions of pho). Her experience across the board in commercial, corporate and other areas of law, as well as her ability to be in tune with clients' needs and to think outside of the box, results in a unique approach to law that we think is the bee’s knees.​

Outside the office, when Malisa isn't volunteering legal services to charities, you can find her frequenting one of Sydney's many dog parks with our office pooch, Huxley.

Jade Lloyd-Weinstein

SENIOR SOLICITOR | Property Law Team

Got a question about property law? Jade has worked in property law for over 15 years and we're confident she - being a walking, talking, double-shot-cappuccino-drinking encyclopedia of property law - will have the answer.

Jade has worked on all sides of property transactions, from working with property developers and government bodies to working with individuals and trusts. Her experience across residential and commercial transactions means that, no matter what hurdles are thrown in, she always finds a way to overcome them and achieve the kind of results that have her clients singing her praises.

When she isn’t tackling contract reviews, Jade is usually amusing us with her wicked sense of humour or planning her next family adventure.

Abbey O'Connell

SOLICITOR | Commercial Team

Abbey initially joined our team as a legal intern, and never left.

Abbey's attention to detail, eagerness to learn and creative ability (yes, she used to be a graphic designer) has contributed to the firm in ways that are hard to put on paper (or on a website), but cannot be overstated.

Abbey has quickly become our office go-to on a variety of topics, including leasing, trademarks, and really anything that benefits from her creative mindset (cue: podcast agreements, sponsorship agreements, services agreements, shareholders' agreements... the list goes on).

When Abbey isn't working, you can find her cafe-hopping around the eastern suburbs (most likely being mistaken for Taylor Swift).

Leanne Kawalsky

SENIOR SOLICITOR | Property Law Team

Leanne, with her reliability and heart of gold, is humanising property law, one transaction at a time.

Leanne’s background was originally in commercial law and she draws on that experience in order to bring a methodical, commercial and practical approach to property law that our clients love, whilst also utilising her extensive network and negotiation skills to ensure that clients are provided all round support during their transactions. 

When she isn’t being a property law superwoman, she trades that cape for the one of supermum; tackling school runs, weekend sports and kid’s birthdays with that same attitude that makes her such an asset to our team.

Huxley

CMO (CHIEF MORALE OFFICER)

With a knack for sleeping on the job and, to be brutally honest, a complete disregard for personal space, we’re not too sure how Huxley managed to secure a spot on the team.

 

Now he's here, he's our most in-demand and loved staff member and is the first port-of-call if you're feeling stressed or want a second to relax (and play fetch with one of his many toys in the office).

 

As a result of his stellar efforts, and his ability to consistently meet his KPI of being a very good boy, Huxley has managed to secure a long term position in the team and it's looking like he won't be leaving anytime soon (except for his daily walkies, of course).
