Topdocs Legal nabs senior SMSF lawyer
Topdocs Legal has further bolstered its legal team with the addition of a senior associate who will work across superannuation, trusts and estate planning.
Caroline Harley joined Topdocs Legal as a senior associate this week. She will provide legal services across SMSFs, superannuation, trusts and estate planning, and also review legal documents.
Ms Harley said with greater numbers of practitioners now addressing the estate planning gap and other changes in the industry, Topdocs has looked to further expand its legal team.
“I’m really excited to be joining [Topdocs Legal] because they’ve got such as solid reputation of supporting professional advisers and they’re removing a risk where non-lawyers are being asked to read and understand legal documents by doing it for them,” she said.
Ms Harley was formerly senior counsel at Greenfields Financial Services Lawyers and senior legal counsel at Perpetual Limited.
Miranda Brownlee is the deputy editor of SMSF Adviser, which is the leading source of news, strategy and educational content for professionals working in the SMSF sector.
Since joining the team in 2014, Miranda has been responsible for breaking some of the biggest superannuation stories in Australia, and has reported extensively on technical strategy and legislative updates. Miranda has also directed SMSF Adviser's print publication for several years.
Miranda also has broad business and financial services reporting experience, having written for titles including Investor Daily, ifa and Accountants Daily.
