Ebony Mack is a Senior Associate and member of the Compulsory Acquisition Team where she assists landowners, tenants and businesses in compulsory acquisition claims and disputes.

Ebony brings a practical approach to the compulsory acquisition process and is a passionate advocate for claimants’ rights. Ebony seeks to minimise the stress and anxiety associated with compulsory acquisitions for her clients.

Ebony’s business degree provides her with a greater insight into the potential impacts on a business during the compulsory acquisition process. Combining a business degree and a law degree equips Ebony to advise on the complexities of the compulsory acquisition process. Ebony prides herself on working closely with her clients to walk them through their entitlements to compensation, strategising the best way to protect their rights and ensuring that her clients are in the best position they can be once the compulsory acquisition process has been finalised.

Among other things, Ebony has vast experience in representing clients affected by whole or partial residential/commercial property claims, business relocation and extinguishment claims, easement acquisitions, loss on sale claims and voluntary negotiations with Authorities in relation to Access Agreements for the construction of easements and pipelines. In addition, Ebony is skilled at assisting throughout the entire acquisition process including obtaining all necessary expert valuation, planning, tax, business and agribusiness advice which may be relevant to her client’s case.
