    Hi Folks...

    Do you know any good conveyancing solicitors in NSW who speak Mandarin? I know someone who wants help as English is 2nd language (quite good in my opinion) but he expressed he wouldn't feel confident committing to a contract unless he could speak Mandarin to his legal.

    Google 'find a lawyer' and on the law society website you can actually search for a solicitor and you could search for language skills as well.

    Thanks all, esp @steadyrich and those who PM'ed me contacts. It is for a conveyancing matter, it is likely to occur again for me as more Chinese Australians consider buying outside of Sydney, so I wanted to get any recommendations right first time.

    I am also shocked @Terry_w . What do you do with all your time?

    Greeks are more partial to lemons if I remember correctly?

    I'm a bit late to the party but as you suggested it might arise again, I dealt with David Kam of Kam & Co while I was in Beijing and he was great to deal with. He works a lot with Chinese buyers and his office is in Sydney.
