Lisette Lyons came to Bourke Love at the end of 2011 with nearly 10 years of experience as a Legal Secretary, having started her career in 2003 with a local Ballina law firm. She has a background of experience in general personal injury, motor accidents, workers compensation, conveyancing and commercial law, and at a previous firm, oversaw the changeover of legal software systems from Locus to Affinity, as well as rebuilding the precedent suite.
Lisette’s strengths lie in her ability to coordinate, organise and facilitate the trickiest of transactions, which led to her taking on a new role as Bourke Love’s Practice Co-ordinator in 2015. Based out of Bourke Love’s Ballina office, Lisette is responsible for the day to day operations of a busy, multi office law firm, including IT, marketing, advertising, maintaining client and supplier relationships, managing personnel, staff training, acquisition and development.
“The best of my job is coming up with new or novel ways to streamline our productivity and efficiency, so that as a firm, we’re always moving forward,” Lisette says. “I really enjoy seeing a project that I’ve worked hard on, come to fruition and be successful.”
When not at work, Lisette chases her three energetic children (one of which is her husband), assists her husband to run his local construction based business, and is planning her next escape to New Zealand to add to her wine collection and get some snow time.
