The Pathfinder Difference

We’re helping to build Gippsland’s future through better legal services.

Whether you’re starting a business, buying a property, planning for the future of your estate, or looking to improve your company’s legal processes and documentation, Rob Celada and his team will work with you to achieve the results you need.

We offer a full range of services in Commercial Law, Property Law & Conveyancing, Estate Planning, Litigation, and more. Our clients look to us to provide advice with a whole-of-business perspective. We’re here to help you identify and reach your strategic goals, not just look over your contracts.

At Pathfinder, we pride ourselves on embracing innovation. Technology, automation, and new ways of doing business have transformed the practice of law, and we’re at the forefront of these changes. As a result, we can work quicker, more efficiently, and focus on the things that really matter to you and your business, instead of running up endless hours on paperwork and rote tasks.

As a group of professionals with deep ties to Gippsland, we feel a sense of civic duty. Using our skills to help grow business and entrepreneurship in the region is our greatest passion. Whether you run an established business, or you’re just starting out, we’d love to hear from you and find out how we can help.
