That’s exactly what happened a couple of months ago when my firm, Marrawah Law, was given the practice owned by Oliver Gilkerson, Gilkerson Legal.
The overwhelming majority of my staff are Indigenous women. While I’ve made deliberate decisions to employ good Indigenous legal people, I’ve never had the intention to preference women. The reality is that’s how it has worked out for me.
I’m the owner of an Indigenous firm and because I’ve been seeing it happen, it always surprises me when I see other businesspeople oblivious to one of the fastest growing sectors in the economy.
