“I just wanted to thank you for all of your assistance in the sale of my business. Your advice was practical, commercially focussed, and delivered at a reasonable cost. I would have no hesitation in using your services again or recommending you to other clients”

“A short note to thank you for the professional services you provided in relation to the purchase of our business.

Our dealings with you were always positive and your services were of a high standard. We felt that you went that extra mile, always making time to listen and guide us even outside of normal working hours. You always provided timely responses to all questions and requests, and helped achieve the best outcomes for us. We would strongly recommend your services.”

I have worked with Matthew over the last couple of years on a variety of leasing matters. I have always found him to be friendly, diligent and responsive to our company’s needs. He has an excellent knowledge of retail leasing, and has always provided clear and competent advice. I would have no hesitation in recommending his services for such matters.”


Leasing Manager, National Company

“Working with Matt Baker-Johnson took the worry out of the legal side of purchasing a business, especially for myself and my business partner as this was our first business purchase. This allowed us to spend all of our time to ensure that we were ready for settlement.

From a legal perspective, our purchase was anything but ‘run of the mill’ and Matt worked tirelessly to have everything organised for us so that, come settlement day, there were no hold ups and we were able to simply go ahead as planned. We definitely intend to contact Matt in the near future to make the most of his expertise and dedication.”

Matthew is professional and knowledgeable in his work and is always happy to assist.

I value the fact that with Matthew looking after our interests we can make commercial decisions, decide on a timeline and then be able to simply leave it with him while we move onto other business ventures, when at all times having the confidence that the right documentation would be done on time and our interests fully protected.

If I were to name three of Matthew’s strongest traits, I will say (1) Adherence to deadlines, (2) attention to details, and (3) ability to take a strategic forward view on behalf of his client. I would suggest that those are very valuable strengths to find in your lawyer. I think the first two traits make him a very good technical lawyer, but the third trait makes him an excellent commercial lawyer.”


Company Director

Thank you for your professional services in regard to the conveyancing of our parents’ home. With your legal guidance, we have had a successful outcome. The conveyancing became a complicated and involved investigation into past contracts, however you were able to use your legal skills and knowledge to solve the issues.

We found you extremely efficient and personable. You made yourself available to explain or clarify issues as required.  We would be pleased to recommend your professional services to others in the future. With kind regards and thank you once again.”


Home Owner

I have worked in the Mortgage Industry for nine years now and during my time in business I have benefited greatly from the support of Matt Baker-Johnson and more recently his company Avery Commercial Lawyers.

Due to the nature of our work we deal with many different legal companies, solicitors and licenced conveyancers. I can say without hesitation that Matt Baker-Johnson has proven himself to be without question one of the best in his field.

Due to the high level of service he provides and the expertise he offers our clients he has universally become our preferred referral partner for clients that are buying or selling their properties.

Matt has also worked for me on my own personal matters involving both my business and commercial lease as well as my own property transfers.

My experience with Matt has only ever been excellent and the feed-back from clients is always positive.

His advice is practical, legally sound, and delivered at a reasonable cost. I would have no hesitation in recommending him for property and commercial matters.”

Business Broker

“My brother and I were thrown in the deep end as executors for our late mother’s estate so we sought Avery Commercial Lawyers’ advice and guidance.

We were more than satisfied with their prompt and efficient service – they went above and beyond the call of duty obtaining probate and even attending the bank to collect title to our mother’s property, despite the bank’s insistence that they held no title.

We were guided and kept informed at every step of the process and because of their support, settling the estate was as painless as possible. Avery Commercial Lawyers were very professional and the costs were reasonable.”


Probate client

“We’re quite happy with the ease at which Avery Commercial Lawyers were able to accommodate our needs, given our unusual circumstances. The entire process was simple, and all our questions were answered. Signed documents were lodged promptly.”

Conveyancing Client

“I’d like to thank your company so much for the extremely smooth completion of the sale of my property earlier this year. Not only was the service efficient but the staff were a pleasure to deal with. It makes such a difference when dealing with such a big thing in one’s life to have a real person to speak to – and for them to explain clearly what is going on. Furthermore, in my case, the settlement details needed to be finalised over a public holiday period but this appeared to be no problem for Avery Commercial, who completed the work without a hitch. Thanks for your efforts – we are now in our new home!”
