In 1976 Terry Ledlin established a general legal practice which, over time, grew and expanded from its suburban base to include offices in the Sydney CBD and Melbourne, with specific expertise in Credit Management, Insolvency, Dispute Resolution and general Business Advice for Commercial Clients.

Today sees a new and innovative law firm, Ledlin Lawyers, started by Terry and his daughter Natalie using the latest technology, a passion for helping people and a combined 50 years worth of legal experience.

We understand that Clients are busy – they want quick, simple and concise summaries of their legal position, and more importantly, a practical and workable solution to their legal problems. The longstanding relationships that we have built over many years means that Clients see us as part of their team, a resource available as and when required.

Clients trust us implicitly to look after their interests and deliver the best possible result in any circumstance.

We stand behind what we say. Contact us, speak to our Clients and let us help your business.

Natalie Ledlin
Natalie LedlinPractice Director and Lawyer
Natalie is the Practice Director of Ledlin Lawyers, and was admitted as a lawyer after graduating from a double degree in psychology and law. Owning and running her own business has given her particular insight into the challenges that her commercial Clients face on a day to day basis.

Natalie is an experienced litigator and regularly appears in all Court jurisdictions, with a special expertise in insolvency litigation and defending unfair preference claims. She is a skilled negotiator and regularly advises senior management on their business issues.

One of Natalie’s many strengths is her determination to make a difference. She takes the time and makes the effort to fully understand what her Clients are trying to achieve. Often what appears on the surface as a legal issue is really a business issue, or a communication issue. Her psychology training and her legal knowledge and experience make her a formidable opponent and an essential ally.

Natalie enjoys working with Clients from a wide range of sectors, including transport and distribution, professional services and mining.

Terry Ledlin
Terry LedlinSpecial Counsel
Terry is a skilled and practical lawyer who has worked with government agencies and both private and publicly listed national and multinational companies across many different industries – in particular building and construction, IT and advertising and media.

Solving complex commercial problems is Terry’s specialty. He can always find a solution even where none seems to exist, especially in Credit Management, insolvency and business structures.

Clients have referred many challenging matters to Terry since the commencement of the Personal Property and Securities Act (“the PPSA”). Terry has prepared General Security Agreements, drafted practical internal procedures to ensure successful results under the PPSA and has acted in unfair preference claims where perfected security interests have been claimed successfully as a defence.

Terry has regularly presented at seminars and conferences both in Australia and overseas and has chaired Trade Bureau meetings for over 20 years. He helped develop – and has delivered – the Australian Institute of Credit Management training and qualification courses and he is the author of several publications relating to legal and Credit Management issues.
