Emma Heuston

Founder & Principal Lawyer

Hello and welcome to the Remote Expert! I am so pleased you stopped by.

I am Emma Heuston, Head Honcho of the Remote Expert, lawyer and author.


As the Remote Expert I help businesses grow and thrive every day by giving step by step advice in plain english language, including:

  1. assisting start up businesses to set up remote (or online);

  2. helping small and medium businesses ensure their remote working arrangements are compliant;

  3. providing policies and employee handbook templates; and

  4. helping “traditional bricks and mortar” business navigate the tricky terrain of managing employees who work (or wants to work) 1 or 2 days per week remotely.


Remote work is not only my business, it is my passion.

I received recognition in the legal industry for my in-roads in the remote work space in 2018 when I won the 2018 Lawyers Weekly Women in Law Thought leader of the Year Award.

2019 has seen more industry award nominations via being named as a finalist in the Australian Law Awards Regional Law Firm of the Year and Sole Practitioner of the Year Categories for the Remote Expert.

With postgraduate qualifications in organisational change management and human resources, I understand what makes a business tick and how remote work can improve your bottom line.

I also pride myself on cutting the B.S and speaking to you in language you can understand in the most efficient way possible. If you would like to work with me, check out my services here.


I have a passion for helping others. In my 19 years as a lawyer I have helped many people overcome difficult times and come out the other end stronger and more resilient.

In 2018 I published a book, “The Tracksuit Economy – how to work productively and effectively from home”, documenting the years I worked remotely at partner equivalent in a law firm. As a former remote worker and now remote business owner, I understand the issues organisations face in all stages of business. As a result, I am proud to offer the following levels of service to business organisations:

  • do it yourself template legal documents and policies (Bronze Packages);

  • do it yourself template legal documents and policies with a review by a lawyer option (Silver Packages); and

  • customised documents drafted for you plus packaged retainer packages (Gold Packages). GET IN TOUCH
