Great to see Marina Brizar, our multi-award winning Solicitor and Registered Migration Agent and Head of Corporates, represented as a panellist at the Rising Star event organised by the Women Lawyers Association of NSW.
Marina Brizar has represented a plethora of clients ranging from significant investors to those with “distinguished talent”; from start-up company sponsors to international corporations. Together with her corporate experience, Marina has also acted on cases in human trafficking and on behalf of asylum seekers both in Australia and offshore. She graduated from the University of Technology, Sydney in 2012 with a Bachelor of Laws/ Bachelor of International Studies. Marina’s legal work, advocacy and government lobbying on behalf of clients has resulted in her being named the 2015 Women Lawyer of the Year – Up and Coming and 2015 Young Migration Lawyer of the year. Marina co-founded the AMB Foundation, which fundraises to issue grants for practical expenses for students seeking asylum, assisting them in their transition from high school to tertiary studies.
The discussion topics were:
- How do you get a start in the law?
- How do you progress your career in law?
- How do you wake up inspired?
The feedback we received was outstanding and we hope you will join us again for Marina’s next speaking event!
‘Excellent speakers that really provided a break from the day to day routine as a commercial lawyer. Thank you for sharing your heart and soul and what you truly care about.’
‘It was very insightful, it made me think about my future opportunities.’
‘Very insightful and thought-provoking. The most important thing is to follow your passion and that is where the motivation comes from.’
We feel honoured to have such an ambitious colleague among us and value her initiative to inform her peers on how to pursue their future law careers.
Many thanks to the NSW women lawyers association for continuously hosting such inspiring and career-enriching events.
