Noel established Birch & Co in 1983, after working as a Solicitor in a top-tier Brisbane firm following completion of his Articles in England.

Noel has nearly 40 years’ experience in all of the firm’s practice areas and has carved out an established reputation as a thorough and formidable legal advisor.

These days, however, Noel prefers to concentrate his efforts on succession law and estate planning. As member of the baby-boomer generation himself, the issues confronting Australia’s aging population are close to Noel’s heart. Such issues include:

• Will drafting and succession planning, particularly for blended family situations;
• Reviewing and advising on aged care residential agreements;
• Advising on potential family provision claims and Will challenges; and
• Elder abuse claims.

In his spare time, Noel enjoys travelling and delighting in his grandchildren.

Noel is a member of the Queensland Law Society.
