What Clients Say
A challenging executive exit made easier co-partnering with Michael Law Group
I had a pleasure working with Michael Law Group in general protection and employment law case.
Throughout my experience working with the team and Vivian as the principal legal counsel, I felt safe and secured – knowing that I had someone I could lean on throughout this emotionally and mentally challenging time.
Vivian’s confidence, light-heartedness, strategic and well-balanced approach is an asset to any clients.
Her thoroughness in providing situational insights, law context and the next steps recommendations had provided me an opportunity to “co-pilot” my journey with Vivian.
I would recommend Michael Law Group to my friends and family members.
OLIVIA - EXECUTIVe
Vivian, Is the most hard-working ethical conscientious and empathetic person I could’ve asked for to support me in my journey. She managed a very complex high profile client, with professionalism, integrity, and passion for what is right. Vivian’s frank and fearless approach was all the encouragement I needed, to keep my head high when time became overwhelming and challenging. ( and trust me they do at time, but Vivian never gave up) Vivian’s humanistic negotiation strategy was successful, she closed the case, in my favour and fought hard for a resolution, that I was pleased with.
Employee & Company Director
Michael Law Group, and Vivian Michael in particular were recommended to me to help negotiate my exit as an employed Company Director of the company I was associated with. Vivian's knowledge and proven skillsets in both Employment and Company Law provided reassuring guidance and importantly a favorable outcome. I have no hesitation in highly recommending and endorsing Michael Law Group's services to anyone for your legal and business needs.
Employee, Mining Industry
Vivian is very dedicated to help her clients.
I've been in contact with Vivian for an Unfair Dismissal under General Protection. She told me honestly the strong and weak parts of my case and helped me to prepare my summary for the conciliation.
She has a lot of tips as she's very experienced.
It's easy to talk with Vivian she's very friendly
