Our History

COMPANY OVERVIEW

1981

Origins and Growth

Craig Green, the Principal of GML, embarked on his legal journey in 1981 after  completing five years of Articles of Clerkship with MacGillivray, Halligan, and  Thompson, a prominent Brisbane-based banking and property law firm. 

His journey  began with a multimillion-dollar development loan for a high-rise  apartment block, marking the start of a successful career in banking law. By 1995,  Craig acquired full ownership of the firm, renaming it to MacGillivrays

His journey  began with a multimillion-dollar development loan for a high-rise  apartment block, marking the start of a successful career in banking law. By 1995,  Craig acquired full ownership of the firm, renaming it to MacGillivrays

1995-2013

Expansion and Leadership

Under Craig’s leadership as Managing Partner from  1995 to 2013, the  MacGillivrays experienced  remarkable growth, expanding from 25 staff to 180 across Brisbane,  Sydney, Melbourne, Gold  Coast, and Sunshine Coast. 

During this period, Craig pioneered the firm’s  involvement as the first  ING-appointed law firm in  Queensland for the Mortgage Manager Funding Programme, solidifying its position  in the banking sector.

2012

Merger with Gadens

In 2012, Gadens Brisbane
approached Craig to merge his firm, focusing on building their Banking  group. The merger took place on April 2, 2013,  marking a new chapter in  Craig’s career. As head of  the Gadens Brisbane Banking & Finance team,  Craig oversaw exponential  growth, with staff numbers  increasing from 43 to over  140.

Under his leadership, billings surged, making the  section the top-performing  group at Gadens Brisbane  for seven consecutive years.

2017

Establishment of Offshore Operations

In 2017, Craig made a strategic decision to establish  the Gadens offshore processing team in Manila, Philippines. Within three years, this initiative  flourished, growing to a team of 90 dedicated staff. This expansion not only bolstered service capabilities but also significantly enhanced the  overall customer experience.

2024

Founding Green Mortgage Lawyers: Elevating the Vision

With Gadens offices merging into one integrated  national firm in July 2024, Craig, a respected  influencer and thought leader in the legal and  banking sectors, faced a pivotal moment. Rather than  considering retirement, Craig saw an  opportunity to elevate his contribution to the  mortgage lending industry.

Founding Green Mortgage Lawyers wasn’t just a decision to prolong  his legal career; it was a strategic move to drive accelerated growth, nurture continued relationships,  and champion a shared vision of success with his  clients.

2025

Future Outlook

Looking ahead, GML is poised to chart a bold path  for the next decade, prioritising the Total Experience  (TX) of mortgage lending services. Far from a mere  buzzword, TX embodies our strategic imperative to  redefine excellence in client and borrower interactions.

With 55 staff in Brisbane and 95 in Manila, Philippines, GML is ready for expansion,  committed to serving clients in the next decade.
