Kerri commenced her new role as Associate at the Brisbane-based firm on January 1 2020.
“I have been working within the legal industry for almost five years now and, over that time, I have worked incredibly hard to get the best results for my clients in the areas of residential and commercial conveyancing, subdivisions, community title schemes and disputes,” Mrs Balaba said.
“I have been incredibly lucky throughout my career, having had the opportunity to be mentored by one of Brisbane’s best real estate and property lawyers, Bill Purcell. Since joining Bennett & Philp in early 2018, I have had found the team to be supportive and instrumental in my continued development as a legal professional.
My time at Bennett & Philp to date has been personally and professionally rewarding. The firm is invested in my growth as a legal professional, and I have been given the opportunity to work on a diverse array of matters for a wide range of clients.”
Managing Director Lance Pollard said Mrs Balaba’s evolution as a legal professional since joining the firm has been rapid.
“Kerri has extensive residential, commercial and industrial real estate experience. Kerri is a trusted advisor to her clients, and her success at Bennett & Philp has been defined by her attitude and approach to practising the law.
“Kerri has played a major role in growing the real estate and property practice over the last 18 months and her promotion to Associate reflects her contribution to the firm. We are looking forward to Kerri’s ongoing success within the firm and her continuing to advance her legal career with us.”
Kerri was admitted as a Certified Practitioner of the Supreme Court of Queensland in 2015 and the High Court of Australia in 2018.
She is also a proud Queensland University of Technology alumnus and member of the Queensland Law Society.
