In January 2020, Andreyev Lawyers and JFM Law merged two long established firms with different cultures and ways of doing things. As it transpired, successfully integrating our practices was not the only challenge we faced, since 2020/2021 found us and the rest of the world preoccupied with other things – health, security and a very changed economic landscape.
Despite this there are new faces around the place (at least on Zoom), we have moved offices in Sydney from Potts Point to O’Connell Street in the city and we are sure once Sydney comes out of lock-down our staff and clients will enjoy the new space! In Adelaide we have grown enough to spread out over two floors and we continue to recruit (call us if you are a lawyer looking for a firm that embraces positive people who love learning and want to make law accessible and relevant). We have also been inspired to develop technology platforms that will help us to offer stronger commerical law and employment law solutions that allow successful business owners and their families to thrive.
Now the dust has settled a bit, and the positive outcomes we hoped for from the merger have eventuated, we have decided to come together under a shared identity that represents who we are, what we believe in and how we work. We have picked a hexagon as our brand symbol being the ultimate combination of strength and efficiency, (plus it has a nice connection to bees – hardworking, collaborative, have a great product etc…) and our name, ‘Andreyev Lawyers’ in our favourite blue and gold with a combination of fonts that represent our old school values with a modern twist! We have not left JFM behind either. So, for our specialist employment law and company title offerings, you may still see a JFMAndreyev Lawyers logo and branding that will ensure a smooth transition for JFM clients.
Thank you to all our clients and referrers who continue on this journey with us – we are your fiercest ally and we will give you the confidence and support to seize every opportunity!
While the COVID-19 vaccination hasn’t been explored by the Fair Work Commission (yet), we do know that there are certain situations where an employer can mandate the influenza vaccination for its workers. These same principles can be relied upon to assist with determining whether employers can mandate the COVID-19 vaccination.
