About Gillian.

Gillian Leahy is Accredited by the Law Society of NSW as a Specialist in Property Law and is a Partner of Selvaggio Lawyers.  She has a strong focus in the areas of Property and Commercial Law. 

Gillian enjoys working with clients on a variety of business and property transactions, delivering sound, commercially-viable solutions and ‘plain English’ advice.

At all times, Gillian is responsive to clients’ needs and is able to offer a quick turnaround, particularly given the tight timelines required in property work. She has a strong understanding of the local property market – both residential and commercial.

In addition, Gillian’s understanding of workplace issues, and their impact on both the employee and the employer, enables her to provide high quality professional advice to clients in the field of employment law. Whether you are a business or an individual, Gillian can work with you on a range of commercial and employment matters that will save you considerable time and money. She is incisive with keen attention to detail, and can quickly identify the issues at stake – providing prompt advice coupled with commercially viable solutions.

In most instances Gillian will attempt to resolve matters before Court action is required, looking at the issues holistically and giving you a clear picture of what to expect moving forward. When required however she is a talented and tenacious litigator who is able to achieve the best possible results on your behalf through the court system.

Selvaggio Lawyers were invaluable in helping me through a difficult time, after unfairly being restricted from seeing my children. I didn’t know where to start. I was dealing with lots of issues at that time and overwhelming emotions. They walked me through the process and made it easy. They answered my questions, no matter how trivial, and took time out of their day to attend to my enquiries.


We have been involved with Selvaggio Lawyers for approximately ten years, almost on a daily basis, due to the high volume of conveyancing work they carry out on our behalf. Selvaggio Lawyers' service has been second to none, with all work carried out in an highly efficient and prompt manner and our dealings with all staff have shown them to be professional and willing to 'go the extra mile' as our legal representatives.

Selvaggio Lawyers were kind and caring through a very difficult time. They provided honest and upfront advice, without the drama.


I have worked with Gillian Leahy of Selvaggio Lawyers since January 2014 on the purchase, sale and assignment of more than 15 properties. The transactions have included several complex Option Deeds and Deeds of Assignment. Gillian’s dedication, professionalism and rapid turnaround of documents have many times made the difference between winning and losing a deal. I recommend Selvaggio Lawyers highly for any property-related matters.
