Although TV-buff Rhennen Ford credits Boston Legal for sparking his interest in law, it has been his practical approach, efficiency and cool composure that have helped him forge a successful career as a property and commercial lawyer.
Whether negotiating commercial property transactions, drafting and negotiating retail or commercial leases, or performing general commercial transactional work, Rhennen strives to move matters along quickly and return results for his clients.
“I collaborate with my clients throughout the full cycle of their transaction or matter. Knowing I’ve helped them see an issue through to its solution is what sends me home satisfied at the end of each day.”
Although Rhennen works with an array of clients, from developers to small business owners, it was helping the “little guy” take on a major developer that stands out as a career highlight:
“I acted for a farmer on the north side of Brisbane, with a major developer on the other side wishing to purchase his property. By the end of the negotiations we managed to get another $2 million cash in his hand, which was a fantastic feeling.”
Despite comfortably living and working in the rush of the city now, Rhennen’s coastal North Queensland roots have stayed with him and he still dashes to the beach every chance he gets.
He thrives on being busy and provides meticulous execution.
