What clients say

Archana has supported our organisation with a significant dispute with local revenue authorities. Her attention to detail and thoroughness in strategy and action has been critical in us being able to communicate and manage the process in a measured and logical manner ensuring that we meet our obligations and present a sound and strong case within the dispute. I've found Archana to be collaborative, empathic yet incredibly practical in working through the issues with me and my team making the stressful process manageable and predictable.

Archana has been engaged by us to provide high level consultative advice in the overlapping areas of legal and taxation and has led an engagement with revenue authorities. Archana is a high calibre business professional, is highly competent in her subject matter and is able to engage with clients to understand fully their position and is then able to propose solutions for the business problem at hand. Archana demonstrates a high level of commercial acumen combined with strong emotional intelligence that together bring positive energy to the problem solving task and in turn high quality business outcomes.

Archway Legal has been our legal representatives for the last several months and has guided our company through employment tax issues and related superannuation matters. In providing advice and documentation Archway Legal has formulated procedures that will protect our company moving forward which will allow us to grow knowing we are fully compliant with State and Federal tax and superannuation laws.
