TIA Lawyers

Migration Law

We assist with all visas, citizenship and complex migration matters, including employer sponsored visas, skilled visas, student visas, tourist visas, partner visas, parent visas, child visas, investment and innovation stream visas, covid visas, Administrative Appeals Tribunal (AAT) appeals as well as inbound and outbound travel exemptions.


The Covid-19 Pandemic and incumbent border closure have caused unprecedented disruption to the migration industry. If you are currently in Australia and are looking to stay, the Australian government has endorsed a Temporary Activity Visa (subclass 408). This visa allows holders to remain in Australia for anywhere up to 12 months. Contact the TIA team today to see if you are eligible for this visa.

If you are interested in obtaining a travel exemption for you or your family member to enter Australia or if you are an Australian citizen looking to travel overseas, contact our experts today to see if you are eligible.


Finance Law

We assist with drafting simple to complex loan and mortgage facilities to secure corporate and private lenders.

Anthony Perich, the Principal of TIA, has had over 15 years of experience as a Banking and Finance lawyer for both a prominent banking and finance lawyer firm in Sydney and a multi-national top tier law firm. He has acted for all the "Big Four" banks in Australia and many other banks, financial institutions and private lenders. TIA currently acts for mortgage funds, private lenders.

TIA has experience in corporate, commercial, consumer credit and complex project finance facilities.


Commercial Law

TIA prepares commercial and retail leases and advises on leasing issues for both landlords and tenants.

TIA acts for several landlords and advises many tenants on negotiating the most favourable terms for their lease.

TIA currently acts for prominent national and multi-national landlords in relation to their leasing matters in the jurisdiction of Queensland, Australia.

Please contact our office if your are a landlord looking to lease your property or if you are a tenant needing advice on your lease before entering into it.

TIA also issues Notices to Remedy any defaults under the lease and advise its client on a number of options for possible enforcement.


Leasing Law

When entering into a lease, it’s important to realise that you are entering into a long-term agreement with a plethora of rights and obligations attached.

Retaining experienced lawyers can save you, whether you are a lessor or a lessee, from serious financial mistakes and legal problems.

At TIA Lawyers, we have over 20 years’ experience in commercial and retail leasing.

We currently serve a long list of high calibre clients, in Queensland and interstate. Our firm strives to stay on top of the latest legislation and developments on leasing in Australia.


Across the country, lessors and lessees are scrambling to find answers to the unprecedented disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Governments have passed various Emergency Response legislation for lessees looking for relief and to regulate lessor behaviour. If you are a lessee looking for relief or a lessor dealing with a tenant in default, the TIA team has the expertise to help you.


Consumer Law

The Australia Consumer Law is arguably one of the most powerful pieces of consumer protection legislation to ever have come into existence. 

So if you have been sold a product or service that does not meet up to your expectation, it is important that you know your consumer rights to ensure that you get the product or service you paid for, or that you receive fair compensation. 

Many consumer guarantees are automatically provided to the consumer with the sale of product or service, and as such, businesses have automatic obligations as a “supplier” of a product or services. They cannot simply refer you to a manufacturer. 

If you think your consumer rights have been breached, contact the team at TIA Lawyers today for a free consultation.


Many commercial contracts are drafted to reflect a commercial deal, and not with a pandemic in mind. If you have had an event or travel booking cancelled or a membership due to Covid-19 and the vendor is refusing to provide you with a refund. You should contact the team at TIA Lawyers today.


Education Law

We have a wealth of experience acting for students in both internal or external appeals against education providers. We can assist students in appealing decisions regarding academic progress, academic misconduct, exclusion, transfers, bias and other procedurally unfair processes. 

Our migration background means we are well placed to help international students resolve disputes with educational providers and come up with creative solutions to problems peculiar to international students. 

Having worked with education providers since 2002, TIA has extensive knowledge and expertise in the education field. TIA Lawyers have experience providing compliance advice for Registered Training Providers (RTOs) and Higher Educational Providers (HEPs).  

We recognize that school related issues are often complex and multilayered, but no matter how complex the issues are, Anthony Perich and his experienced education lawyers are here to help.
