The Metis Law Approach
Identify on Your Goals
We focus on your goals and aim to get a complete understanding of your business and personal goals. This understanding enables us to find solutions that are effective and sustainable.
Understand the Issue
The issues underlying a problem are not always obvious. We analyse the issues from a commercial, legal and personal perspective. We work with you to identify what the real issues are.
Our pricing is transparent and you will know in advance the investment you will be required to make.
In 90% of cases, we will provide a fixed or flat fee.
We provide you with the savviest solutions: we take the time to consider alternative ways to solve a problem – using creative structures and asking questions to probe deeper.
You focus on business
Focus on your business while we provide you with the tools to solve your legal challenges.
Who we are
Hello, g'day, kia ora! I'm CEO of Metis Law Australia and New Zealand. I am a lawyer, entrepreneur, board director and attention-to-detail freak!
For over two decades I have helped domestic and international businesses grow, scale, avoid disputes (win disputes when they happen!) and to exit successfully. I started my career practising in "Big Law" firms - Gilbert+Tobin in Australia, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in London and Viet Nam - and in corporate - with Australian Stock Exchange and Commonwealth Bank of Australia.
I have spent the better part of the last decade focusing on working with technology start-ups and scale-ups and business Founders and owners - to help Founders and business owners build impactful businesses.
I have built and sold a number of businesses of my own, so I know what it's like to pour your heart and soul into your business. So, first and foremost, I advocate for Founders and business owners. I am here to help you!
A little secret about me: I am a Tae Kwon Do black belt (Australian / NZ featherweight champion), I find weeding the garden and tidying up using the "KonMari" method exquisitely satisfying and meditative, and I am teaching myself how to play the ukelele.

Oil & Gas
Armaments & Militarism
A very determined lawyer who provides legal advice that is appropriate having regard to the commercial context, but also elegant when considered purely from a legal perspective. Her business acumen is outstanding.
L GAMERTSFELDER, EXECUTIVE GENERAL MANAGER COMMONWEALTH BANK OF AUSTRALIA
A knowledgeable and pragmatic lawyer who was focused on achieving outcomes which were workable for everyone involved in negotiations.
I have been blown away by My-Linh's attention to detail and professionalism. The details provided by the other party where limited as they where time poor. My-Linh recognised this and altered her approach to get what I needed to complete the transaction. I have and will continue to refer My-Linh and her team.
A FADINI, DIRECTOR TRAINED TO SELL
I find My-Linh refreshingly clear with communication and execution of anything I require. It can be difficult to find a lawyer who isn't a time-watcher, and you can tell My-Linh is focused solely on the outcome for the benefit of her client. It's hard to imagine enjoying working with a Lawyer, but I can honestly say I do in this case.
B GREENUP, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR MAXAMISE
It has been great working with My-Linh and her team. Metis Law helped us with our business [contracts]. They made recommendations that we have never thought of before. My-Linh is always up front with cost so there are no surprises when we receive our invoices. I highly recommend her team.
H CHOW, MANAGING DIRECTOR MOTIONWAVE TECHNOLOGIES
My-Linh was quick to understand the brief and asked clear, insightful questions to inform the structure of the agreements and drive commercial considerations we had not previously considered. Importantly, My-Linh speaks and writes in plain English - not 'legalese' and completed the project well ahead of our projected timelines and produced a clear, concise and commercially effective set of contracts.
M FIELD, MANAGING DIRECTOR MICHAEL FIELD STRATEGIC MARKETING CONSULTANTS
My-Linh did an excellent job on two IPOs which we worked on. Very hard working, great output and fun to work with.
M COX, PARTNER ROTHSCHILD
Metis Law provided a great legal service to us, helping us set up Cozitrip and to complete our Seed Round fundraising. My-Linh was very patient and detailed in explaining legal terms and concepts. With My-Linh and Metis Law's professional consultation and project management, we completed the fundraising within a couple of months, which was very satisfactory!
P WU, FOUNDER
My-Linh has very deep understanding and extensive experience in tech startups and their operations, and has been a valuable legal partner to our group, playing an essential part right from business registration and drafting shareholder agreements, to dealings with legal matters with clients on daily basis and assisting with our capital raising. I highly recommend My-Linh and the team at Metis Law for their expertise, fast turn around, attention to detail and professionalism.
