    Hi All

    So we have been growing the conveyancing practice with a business plan aimed at becoming number 2 in our market. We have gone from nothing to number 4 yesterday.

    Today, number 1 in the market shut up shop. And so we are number 3.

    Slater & Gordon Closed Conveyancing Works and exited conveyancing in Australia today. No new clients being accepted. No business sale (though we are trying to buy IP)

    It's been a huge day, going to be an enormous weekend and next week is completely insane.

    Something we never imagined would happen and so never planned for just did. Just based on our position in the market it has to be worth a million or 2 in turnover. If everything we started working on today and began negotiations on comes off then it will be much more.

    Good for you, only happened because you took that first step.

    I think luck is being in the right place when there is an opportunity (people forget that you have to be willing to make the time and effort to be in the right location in the first place).
