Community Educations Seminars – 1st Debate Panellist Announced

Opinions, we all have them. Some are stronger than others but how do we ever really know who is right? In the weeks just past we have announced that Chris Irons, Strata Solve and Juliette Nairn, OMB Solicitors would be the ones to adjudicate the Great Strata Debate taking place Queensland wide in May and June. Their expert knowledge in the field easily equips them to facilitate an active discussion on the topic.

But who will be placing their cards on the table and giving their opinion for and against?


This week we are eager to announce the first of our debaters, none other than Jason Carlson, Grace Lawyers.

Grace Lawyers is a strata law firm that acts exclusively for bodies corporate and committees. In 2021, Grace Lawyers was recognised by the pre-eminent strata industry body as one of three leading Strata Services Businesses.  In 2022, Jessica Cannon and her team from Cannon and Co joined Grace Lawyers shortly after also being recognised as being one of only two of the leading Strata Services Businesses in Queensland in 2022.  The merge brings together the only two law firms in Queensland to receive that recognition.

Jason Carlson is the partner in charge of the firm’s Queensland team.  He has also been a director of Strata Community Association in Queensland since 2016 and has been on its legislation committee since 2013.  His contributions to and leadership within Queensland’s strata industry were recognised when he received The SCA Qld President’s Award in 2022.

Jason has a plethora of knowledge surrounding Strata communities and the disputes that may arise within. It is in fact this knowledge that will back him up and create what we expect to be a very compelling, educational, and lively argument.
