Nicholas O’Donohue and Co.

Founded in 1925, Nodco is a commercial law firm with strong links to the financial services industry. In 1999 following amendments to the Corporations Act, the investment and finance divisions were transferred to the Australian Securities Income Fund managed by Australian Securities Limited, a Nodco related entity with its own AFSL.

Placing a strong emphasis on commerciality, our lawyers adopt a solution-driven approach working with business-owners and SME’s who recognise that process efficiency is as important as the outcome. Our lawyers draw on experience acting for listed entities to assist smaller clients throughout Australia to negotiate the best outcome with larger institutions.

We understand financial services and we understand small business. We are service driven and speak your language.
