“I Highly recommend Richard Watson, 4 years ago he helped us with a case against a rogue builder who was renovating our neighbours house and damaging ours. We found him to be easy to talk to, creative, honest, ethical and straight forward in his approach. Thanks to his superior knowledge of the Law and how to apply it for each case, his advise resulted in a pay out to us instead of going to court. I was so impressed with his services that we are again using him to help us with a Strata issue and an Owners Corporation who are behaving badly!” -Lisa

Drayton Sher Lawyers

Alison Drayton - Drayton Sher Lawyers
Alison Drayton – Drayton Sher Lawyers

Alison Drayton brings a unique perspective to practice in Sydney having grown up in the Caribbean and practised at the bar (and barre) in London prior to making the jaunt down to Sydney about 20 years ago. Forsaking the Northern hemisphere and her desire to become a dancer Alison was admitted to practice in Sydney and in 2002 became a New South Wales Law Society accredited specialist in commercial litigation (Insolvency).

A lawyer with many years of experience in a range of jurisdictions, as barrister and as solicitor, Alison combines intellect with compassion and brings to her practice of the law, life experience gained in many different places including England, the Caribbean and Ghana. Alison is highly regarded as a dedicated professional who is fearless and confident and enjoys a challenge. While her first years as a lawyer were spent roaming the magistrates courts across London and Southern England (including being locked into a cell beneath court with a client and forgotten on one occasion!), Alison’s experience in Sydney has largely been dealing with commercial/equity disputes, acting for Insolvency practitioners and bankrupts, acting for a major bank, company directors, franchisees and in industrial relations disputes.
