The Wonthaggi Miners Dispensary, a not-for-profit community pharmacy, recently engaged Russell to undertake a governance review of the organisation which included a new constitution as well as a range of governance policies and procedures.  We also engaged Russell in the preparation of employment and contractor agreements, the conduct of a Board assessment as well as general advice on a range of other matters.

We are very impressed with his professionalism, extensive knowledge, wisdom and detailed quick responses. He has added considerable value to our business and we have now engaged Russell to work with the Board to prepare a strategic plan for the organisation.

Thank you Russell, for your great service and approachable and friendly manner.

Danny Luna, Chair Wonthaggi Miners Dispensary

I engaged Russell Barnier to design specific contracts for my company to utilise with our customers. Russell’s professionalism and dedication to getting the result I was looking for in order to protect my company, protect my clients and provide a level of professionalism to my clients, was second to none. My clients are now happy with contracts in place, which in turn makes me as Director of the company extremely happy and proud. I recommend Russell to all of my clients for ongoing legal requirements, and continue to use Russell for any legal requirements I require. Thank you Russell for providing such a great service.

I have used the services of Russell from BarnierLaw on several occasion for both my business and personal issues.  Russell has completed hire agreements, staff agreements and various other documents for my business with due diligence.  Russell received his brief and then conducted the works in a timely and professional manner, always asking questions and clarification on documents.  He has a very high standard and respects my confidentiality.  On a personal level Russell has written wills for myself and my wife and again treated us with respect and was respectful of our suggestions but also suggested ideas in case we had not thought of them.  I have no hesitation in using Russell for his services and recommending him to my family and business colleagues.

“As Board Chairman I worked very closely with Russell. I appreciated his understanding of the position, his understanding of governance and his guidance on what was the most appropriate course of action for me to adopt as Chairman.  Russell was someone I could confide in, someone whom I had absolute confidence in that the course of action he was recommending was the right one. Russell always explained issues in everyday language which made it easier to understand complex issues.”

S Mills, former Chairman, G-MW

“I can confirm that Russell, in his duties as corporate secretary … carried out this role in a professional manner with the upmost integrity and competence.  Russell is well liked and respected by the board and executives and is well known for the enthusiasm he brings into the job.”

D Moon, former Director, Watermove Pty Ltd

“My staff and I felt quite a sense of being “safe” as we believe your knowledge re corporate governance was beyond challenge and your integrity did not mean you were caught up in the political games that can occur.”

S Schroen, Manager, Rochester

“Thank you for all your hard work and advice.  As well as updating our documents you’ve also helped us to consider scenarios that we wouldn’t otherwise have thought of.

Thanks Russell

I’ve been remiss in not thanking you for your help and patience during this [purchase of a business] process.   All new ground for us but you were calming and organised.

I recently engaged Russell to provide risk advice and documentation for my beauty services business. He provided in depth and detailed advice and documentation that meets all of my needs and gives me a high level of security. Russell quickly understood my requirements, was prompt and complete in his responses and provided great value to my business.  I will continue to use him for my legal needs and recommend him to others.
