How can we be both multi-skilled and specialised?

Each member of our team is highly qualified to handle all aspects of conveyancing in SA. But unusual issues can sometimes arise around settlements and that’s when our team comes into its own.

Individual members of our team have chosen to specialise in specific aspects of conveyancing law. Where required your conveyancer will collaborate with other team members to ensure you obtain the very best advice for your specific needs.

“Over the years the process that conveyancers engage in has gone from typing paperwork to internet-based ways of operating. We’ve been introducing innovation into the business to help make the clients’ experience better. Using technology will clearly appeal to a growing number of clients as we aim to make things easier for them.”

John is one of the pioneers of conveyancing in South Australia. A key player in our industry, he wrote the book on conveyancing – literally – writing the practice manual now used for all conveyancers in the state.

John established Conveyancing Matters (known as as Erskine Murphy & Associates until 2003) in 1990 and has developed the business to be a well-respected leading authority in conveyancing. His breadth of experience in retailing, combined with a strong academic grounding and conveyancing experience is second to none.
