Corrina Tierney, Conveyancing Clerk

Since joining Baker Deane and Nutt in late 2015, Corrina has completed her studies at Macquarie University and became a Licensed Conveyancer in early 2018. Corrina is also a NSW Justice of the Peace.

Corrina enjoys being part of a strong and skilled conveyancing team, with each person complementing each other with differing styles and strengths to make the team whole. Corrina has a strong attention to detail, a good memory and multi tasks very well; some might say she works really well in organised chaos!

Corrina loves the challenge of a complex matter, and also the satisfaction of knowing that she has assisted someone through what can appear to be quite a complex and daunting process, in as stress-free a way as possible.

It is very rewarding to know we have helped our clients achieve what they want. Our role is about helping our clients achieve the outcome of buying or selling property with as little fuss as possible and as smoothly as can be achieved. I think that we should all be striving to work with our counterparts in other firms to complete a smooth transaction, and attempting to reduce the combativeness that can at times occur. Conveyancing should be one of the situations when we can truly strive for a win-win situation.

Corrina has broadened her conveyancing experience taking on NSW and ACT matters, encompassing rural, residential, commercial, off-the-plan, strata development, put & call deeds, as well as the more complex ACT land rent lease payouts, and matters requiring Ministers Consent to Transfer.

Corrina came to BDN with a wealth of contract management, commercial management and public sector experience after 25 years in the Department of Defence. In her later years, as Director and Executive Director, she managed a large number of differing teams within the Defence Materiel Organisation’s Commercial Group, including Financial Investigation Services, Strategic Commercial Legal Panel, DMO Support Services Panel, and Defence Industry Programmes (Skilling Australia’s Defence Industry, School Pathways Programs, Engineering Internships, and the National Sponsorship of the F1 in Schools program).

Corrina has been supported through her studies and career changes by her husband, Lee, and three (now young adult) children, Sam, Nick & Jacqui.

Corrina’s qualifications are:

  • Bachelor of Applied Science (Industrial Mathematics and Computing)
  • Certificate IV in Procurement (Government)
  • NSW Justice of the Peace
  • Conveyancing Law & Practice (Macquarie University)

With her studies now complete, Corrina and Lee enjoy spending time at the South Coast. Corrina enjoys brain games like Sudoku, and jigsaws, sewing or sitting down with a good book.
