Michael Sobey


Legal Practitioner Director

Michael Sobey

Born and bred on the Sunshine Coast, Michael and his  family (wife and 3 kids) returned to Noosa in 1997. Michael became a partner of the firm in 2001. More likely to be spotted having a beer at the Sunshine Beach Surf Life Saving Club than having a run through the national park, he has been lured by the local attractions, taking up surfing approximately 10 years ago and badly impersonates a batsman with the local cricket club. 

Michael has degrees in both Law and Arts (Modern Asian Studies). Partway through his degrees he travelled overseas and lived in Japan to develop his cultural and language skills. All that remains is a love of sashimi, Asahi beer and an ability to count to 10 in Japanese.

Michael also involves himself in the local community, was president or vice president of the Tewantin-Noosa Cricket Club for eight years, and several years as a committee member of the Sunshine Coast Cricket Association, a former member of the St Thomas More school board and director of the Coast 2 Bay Ltd, a not-for-profit public Company dedicated to obtaining affordable housing solutions in the Sunshine Coast and Moreton areas.

Michael specialises in retail and commercial leasing, management rights, body corporate, commercial property, business sales, and business structuring.
