Our People

SAMANTHA SHEPPARD

In 2004, Samantha (Sam) and her husband left the bright lights of London and ‘escaped’ to the stunning seaside town of Noosa.

Sam previously qualified as a lawyer in England in 1999 and for the next five years worked as a specialised commercial property lawyer, mainly acting for large corporate clients.

After moving to Noosa, Sam’s practice diversified and she started acting for individual and corporate clients on a variety of commercial, business, property and estate planning/administration/dispute matters.

During this time, Sam developed a strong interest in business and succession law.  Sam’s practice now mainly focuses on providing advice to clients in respect of their leasing, business and estate matters. 

Sam prides herself on providing an efficient and personal service to her clients.

One size doesn’t fit all and Sam appreciates that each client’s needs are different and they each deserve an individualised approach to their legal issues.

Outside of work, Sam is often heard mediating disputes between her three sports mad and competitive sons.  Her taxi service to and from sporting venues is busy but unlucrative.
