About Base Legal

Approachable / Affordable / Reliable

Who am I?

Base Legal is me, Fiona McCord.  My breadth of knowledge and skills makes me a one-stop shop for small to medium business.  My areas of knowledge and experience include business law, contracts, corporations law, litigation, insolvency, privacy and consumer law.  I have my Bachelor degree and Masters in Law, and I recently completed an additional Masters subject in Structuring and Financing Transactions, just so I can stay up to date!


I have over 18 years legal experience, having worked full time while I studied.  My experience was gained within State and Federal Government agencies, a boutique practice and a large national firm.  All of my roles involved working with small businesses, and over time I came to appreciate the pressures small business face, including a lack of accessibility to affordable legal services in Torquay.  And so, Base Legal was created.


My passion for helping others has existed since childhood, and I use my qualifications to do so. This includes 5 years volunteering with St Kilda Legal Service, and currently assisting my local business community as the Secretary for Torquay Commerce and Tourism.


How can I assist you if I don’t look after myself? Maintaining a healthy life balance is a main priority. Activities I enjoy include kayaking, swimming and yoga. I am passionate about the Arts and enjoy live music, theatre and exhibitions.
