50 Years Young And Counting
MBA Lawyers has been at the forefront of innovative and client centric legal practice since 1970.Whether you’re buying or selling a house or business, looking after the needs of a loved one, dealing with contentious personal or business issues or simply needing advice, MBA Lawyers is here for you.
The community mantra is one that lives on today and will continue to do so for the next 50 years. A mantra that has cemented the firm’s undeniable 50 years of success.
Our firm remains one of the oldest and most established firms on the Gold Coast. We also contribute significantly to the local community by participating in many initiatives and supporting various community associations.
The firm initially operated from Surfers Paradise for 37 years, before the rapidly growing team moved to purpose-built premises in Varsity Lakes in 2007, finally settling into their forever home in Robina Town Centre in 2022.
When John McDonald left the firm, Rob Balanda took over as managing partner.
“MBA was more than just a law firm, it became a platform to assist you in supporting your local community,” he says.
“The hundreds of hours I put in to win the controversial Gold Coast Boral Quarry case was all done through MBA and I would have to say that it would be the proudest moment of my career.
“I’ve been retired now for five years and when i think about who i’ve helped, the thing I talk most about is the quarry case.”
Tradition and innovation
During the COVID-19 pandemic the MBA Lawyers team rose to the challenge of remote working practices, adopting new technology and maintaining productivity during those unprecedented times.
For managing partner Clayton Glenister, this approach by his team gave him a great sense of pride.
“We will meet, and exceed, any challenges that technology and artificial intelligence have on the legal industry,” he says.
“Clients don’t want to hear ‘no’ from their lawyers, they want to know ‘how’ and we must meet that expectation where ever possible.”
