Lauren joined Murfett Legal in September 2020 as a Senior Associate in the Property & Real Estate team.

Lauren has significant experience as a commercial property lawyer, having previously worked at two top tier national and international firms, based in both Perth and Darwin, and having experience across all Australian jurisdictions.

Lauren has experience across a broad range of commercial property and real estate matters, including property and commercial due diligence; contract review and preparation;  agricultural, commercial, industrial, port and retail leasing; the sale and purchase of land, including office buildings, shopping centres, agricultural land and interests in Crown land; government projects; land developments and access rights including easements and licences.

Due to the nature of property work, Lauren also has experience with FIRB applications and requirements, planning and environment related issues including native title and contamination, and GST and transfer duty laws and requirements as they relate to property transactions.

Having worked on a number of large scale transactions and projects, including the purchase of iconic landmarks such as the Old Swan Brewery and large cattle stations across Western Australia and the Northern Territory, Lauren understands the need to provide clear, pragmatic and commercially minded advice to her clients with a focus on the bigger picture, while still ensuring impeccable attention to detail.

Lauren enjoys building relationships with her clients and believes that having a holistic understanding of their business and goals allows her to provide targeted legal advice and consistently top-quality service.
