“Matt was our go to guy on commercial law issues for years before we sold our successful IT company. He was always approachable, knowledgeable and efficient. Be it purchasing a property, lease negotiations or contracts he got the subtlety of the situation and added value. I always enjoyed working with Matthew and commend him to anyone in business looking for big law firm skills in a small and cost effective practice. I look forward to my next venture I can engage Matt in”
David Markus, Investor and Entrepreneur
“I have recently used the services of Matthew for the transaction of 3 separate entities. Throughout the process I found Matthew to be extremely attentive and thorough. But most of all I found that he not only protected my interests at all times he CARED about achieving the best possible outcome for ME whilst not running up the costs of his professional fees for self serving reasons.”
Troy Sheehan, Managing Director at Jellis Craig (Whithorse)
“As a business broker I have worked with a number of lawyers in my career, but few as uniquely qualified as Matthew. He is extremely well versed in providing high quality legal advice while understanding my client’s needs in negotiating contracts from both the vendor and purchaser positions. Not only is Matthew professional, thorough, and patient, he is a skilled negotiator. I have learned quite a lot in having worked with Matthew. He has an extremely affable work style that compels him to take the time to explain any clause of a contract in lay terms so that his clients thoroughly understand all provisions before they execute. I would undeniably recommend Matthew Baker-Johnson and unequivocally state that I will continue to seek his services as I continue my career.”
Gary Lay, Consultant Business Broker, Wollermann & Associates

J Barnes, Probate client
“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.”
V Kosky, Probate client
“In my recent experience with Avery Commercial Lawyers for my probate matter, l found their service to be efficient, reliable and affordable.
