OUR TEAM

Praneel Bhela
PRINCIPAL

Praneel Bhela
PRINCIPAL

Praneel is our Principal Solicitor and Founder of Impact Legal. With nearly a decade of experience as a lawyer, he honed his skills overseas in Sweden and India, while pursuing his passion for sustainability. After returning to Australia, his ambitious nature and love of community inspired him to establish Impact Legal. 

Praneel is the friendly voice you'll chat to when you first reach out, keen to understand your unique situation, and introduce you to the conveyance process. He combines expert advice with genuine kindness and a true interest in the success of each client. 

Believing in a healthy work-life balance, Praneel stays busy outside of work by hiking and exploring outdoors (like any true Queenslander). He has climbed the largest mountains in Far North Queensland, Tasmania, and New Zealand, often setting off in the darkness to reach the summit by sunrise. Recently, he has been enjoying the fun and challenges of renovating his own home, a project he's excited to be near the finish of!

Jonathon Kawa
PRACTICE MANAGER

Jonathon Kawa
PRACTICE MANAGER

Jonathon (Jonny) is our Practice Manager and all-around team player. With over fifteen years' experience in various legal and corporate roles, Jonny has gained a wealth of professional and social experience from his time working and living in Arnhem Land, Canada, and Melbourne. Jonny's dedication to community stems from his upbringing in Papua New Guinea before moving to Cairns. His interest in social development later led him to complete a Masters Degree in Development Practice. 

We are lucky to benefit from Jonny's eagerness to learn and his passion for all things technology, AI, and blockchain; he is always finding new approaches to keep Impact Legal efficient and innovative, giving us more time to support our clients! 

Much like Praneel, Jonny is most often found outside or on top of a mountain...but if he's not out exploring, you'll find him deep 'in the zone', leaning into his creative side and producing music.
