Lara’s construction clients include civil engineers, plant hire and haulage firms, utilities contractors and builders.
Lara is a member of the Employment Lawyers Association and has experience in a wide range of employment matters.
With the correct approach and management, many issues can be prevented from developing into costly legal disputes and with this in mind, Lara will draw upon her extensive experience to steer you safely towards your goal.

Lara Murray – I found all the people I came into contact with at Palmers to be friendly and polite. I was made to feel at ease the minute I walked into your offices. It is refreshing to know there are law firms out there who care.
