The Flood Legal Team

Legal director

Sharon Flood

Coming from a background in the real estate industry and property market, assisting with the sale and purchase of properties, it seemed a natural progression for Sharon to undertake post graduate legal studies with her dream to one day open her own law firm specialising in property law, business and management rights law.

She graduated in 2006 with first class honours from Bond University and commenced her legal career at a firm she was employed with for nearly a decade specialising purely in property law.

Throughout her years of experience, Sharon has worked in all areas of property law, acting for large scale consortiums, companies, partnerships and individual operators in transactional and advisory matters. Her experience in these transactions provides her clients with a breadth of commercial and legal experience across all areas of property law.

When coming up with the focus and vision for Flood Legal, it was inevitable she chose to continue specialising in property matters and servicing the management rights industry.

Sharon doesn’t take the typical passive approach most lawyers do, she provides her clients with not just high-quality legal advice, but also plays an active role in their property and business transactions, taking a real interest and personal involvement in each and every transaction.
