Riley Driscoll works with her clients to provide assistance and reassurance in navigating legal matters in your business.
Riley understands the pressures on business owners “while any lawyer can look at a matter and consider the legal problem, I love the challenge of doing what lots of lawyers don’t – working with clients to get the outcome at the right time, minimising expense and stress letting you get on with running your business”.
