Our people


Laura Vickers
Principal

Laura's clients love her clear advice and her relentless enthusiasm for fixing their problems.   

Since graduating from the University of Melbourne with first class honours, she has practiced law for nine years in everything from conveyances to High Court appeals. 

She has worked as a Principal Solicitor with the Victorian Government Solicitor's Office, where she represented the State of Victoria in the constitutional challenge to chaplains in schools and was the legal advisor to the Victorian Floods Review, assisting former Chief Commissioner Neil Comrie AO, APM.  She has also worked for top 20 firm Maddocks and local Clifton Hill law firm Elliott Stafford & Associates, taught undergraduate law at La Trobe University, chaired the Constitutional and Administrative Review Committee at the Law Institute of Victoria and volunteered with the Fitzroy Legal Service. 

Since starting Nest Legal, she has won (and later judged) the LexisNexis Legal Innovation Index and in 2015 was shortlisted for the LIV Law Firm of the Year.  She regularly speaks and writes on innovation in the law.

When she’s not triple proofreading your legal documents, she’s chasing her kids or her chickens around her garden or sneaking a quiet cuppa on the back porch.


Our law clerk

Sometimes you might hear from Gus, Nest Legal's supersonic law clerk.   


Our barristers

Nest Legal can engage a barrister to provide you with a dispute strategy. Our preference is to brief barristers whose caring responsibilities prevent them working full-time at the Bar.
