Grace Patching

Grace is a Finance Manager in our Business Support Team.


My name is Grace Patching and I’ve worked at Murdoch Lawyers since August 2003.

I moved to Toowoomba from overseas (Philippines) in December 1999 and it was one of the best decisions I have made in my life.

I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Commerce major in Accounting (obtained overseas) and have over 30 years experience working in finance. As the Finance Manager of Murdoch Lawyers, I oversee all areas of finance including payroll, accounts receivable, accounts payable, cash management and projection, general ledger, management reporting and trust accounting.

Aside from looking at spreadsheets, I also enjoy going to the gym, travelling and being outdoors.
