17 JANUARY 2017 (SYDNEY): LegalVision, Australia’s fastest growing law firm, welcomes two senior appointments as the firm expands its offerings in the franchising and commercial space. Timothy Mak will join the firm as a practice leader and Christopher Mittiga as a senior lawyer.

Tim is a recognised expert in the franchising space and has advised a number of high-profile franchise networks in Australia and internationally, including his role as General Counsel at Gloria Jean’s Coffees and Fastway Couriers. His practice covers all aspects of franchising, licensing, trade marks, transport and distribution.

Christopher will work closely with LegalVision’s Intellectual Property team. Previously working at Norton Rose Fulbright as a Foreign Legal Advisor in their Los Angeles office and prior to that as an Associate in their Melbourne office, Christopher has extensive experience in assisting clients with corporate and commercial transactions with a particular focus on international businesses and cross-border deals.

“Tim and Chris bring to LegalVision a strong track record advising a diverse range of clients, both local and abroad. As our clients look for legal expertise in overseas jurisdictions, we are fortunate to have Tim and Chris join with their significant cross-border experience working with international businesses,” said Lachlan McKnight, CEO at LegalVision.

“We welcome the wealth of experience they will add to our franchise and intellectual property teams as we continue to grow our team to best serve our growing client base.”
