Me Conveyancing practice was quieter than expected until Monday 16 Jan - then we had biggest day ever and also above growth trend - that has continued. Commercial law - always slow in Jan but stronger than expected Property law - always slow in Jan and on track Family law - lots of people calling in, lots of people calling and wanting free advice though, this division is newer and we weren't advertising this time last year Planning law - crazy busy start to the year, council staff seem to get back to work and all those planning applications they were going to reject last year but never got around to doing the paperwork has been. Appeals are going crazy Wills & Estates - new wills were very busy from 16 Jan - maybe new years resolutions to organise themselves? Town Planning Practice - slowest start for lodgements for DA's for several years. Lots of assessments but less actually pulling the trigger. WHAT ABOUT YOU How's your year started and where are you headed?
