The founder’s story

Gnech and Associates’ founder and Legal Practice Director, Calvin Gnech, brings decades of experience in the Queensland legal system to his leadership of the firm. Calvin commenced his legal career as a sworn Queensland police officer preparing briefs of evidence to obtain convictions for many serious offences. Calvin became a successful prosecutor before moving to criminal defence. It is this diverse experience that sets Calvin and his team apart whereby we understand a case from all angles, which ultimately enables us to think outside the box.

In 2019, Calvin founded Gnech and Associates, a boutique private law firm in Brisbane, to continue assisting everyday good people who find themselves in unprecedented circumstances. Soon Elisabeth Baulch and Anna Waite joined as Calvin’s first two employees. Originally joining as part of the legal team, they now hold additional responsibilities as the firm’s legal practice managers. From there the firm quickly grew and Gnech and Associates are now located in new premises in North Quay, Brisbane City.

Calvin’s unwavering dedication and extensive expertise have contributed to the growth and success of the firm. His passion for upholding traditional legal rights is matched by his commitment to promoting mental health awareness and combating bullying in the legal industry.

Decades of experience and a proven track record of success.
