We are the Compulsory Acquisition Compensation Experts

If you receive a call from a Government authority to advise that your land is being acquired and you have to move, we are the experts to call.

We are a specialist compulsory acquisition team that work tirelessly to fight for the right amount of compensation against the Government.

We have fought many cases at no charge at all to our clients – you do not pay us for our services as we claim our costs from the Government. Sometimes you literally have nothing to pay, yet, get the best team.

Our Clients

  • "We were lucky enough to work with Flo and Michele recently on the sale of an apartment in Point Piper.

I have worked with lawyers in the auctioning of over 200 properties and I found the FM Legal team to be, possibly, the most organised I have ever dealt with."
