Branxton based law firm, Shaw & Bunner Legal, have been named as a finalist in the 2019 Hunter Business Awards. The Hunter Business Awards celebrate and recognise excellence in business leadership, entrepreneurship, innovation, sustainability, business growth and employment practices across the Hunter.

Shaw & Bunner Legal has been open for 18 months now and offers services in conveyancing, wills & estates and personal injury law. The law firm has been listed as a finalist in the ‘Start Up Superstar’ category along with six other Hunter businesses. The Start Up Superstar category recognises a business that has been operating for a continuous period of more than 12 months and less than 24 months that delivers a product/service/idea/invention with credible potential. This award recognises early-stage start ups that have a solid chance of market success, and strongly displays the entrepreneurial spirit.

The founders and principal lawyers of the firm, Kerri Shaw & Gemma Bunner, are thrilled to be named a finalist. “We are really humbled to be a finalist. We have experienced great growth as a new business largely due to the support of the local community and our wonderful clients”, Ms Bunner said. “Whatever the result, we are just grateful to be named amongst some incredible Hunter businesses”.
