Our story:

Holley Nethercote Commercial & Financial Services Lawyers and Compact – Compliance & Training (Compact) were founded in 1995 by Grant Holley and Tim Nethercote.

Grant (a barrister at the time) and Tim (a solicitor) often found themselves in the court room with their corporate clients.  During that time they said to each other a number of times: “our client could have avoided this situation if it had known how to do the right thing in the first place.”

So, they established a law firm and training business to keep clients out of court. That continues to be their core purpose.  We assist corporations, regulators and other financial services institutions.

Now, Holley Nethercote is one of Australia’s leading financial services and commercial “preventative law” firms.  Compact is also a leading provider of legal corporate training and compliance services for Australian Financial Services and Australian Credit licensees.  See our expert staff here.
