Lysette Yates


Getting to know my clients’ businesses and helping to protect their interests is the most enjoyable aspect of my work. I instil confidence in my clients by providing them with a true depiction of the issues, their position and the options available to them to best achieve their desired outcomes.

We all measure success differently, chase our unique goals and face opposing challenges. As such, its important to understand each client’s values and objectives.

I work with a range of clients from large insurers through to small business operators. My previous experience as an officer of a company and assistance with the growth and management of that business has taught me the value of understanding the internal operations of businesses and the importance of stakeholder relationships.

I have experience with property law, finance law, debt/asset recovery and dispute resolution and I focus primarily on resolving disputes of a commercial nature.

I provide my clients with a direct approach to achieving their goals and I thrive on assisting them to get there. I always focus on the outcome that is best for them, whether that’s negotiating a settlement or taking a matter through to litigation.
