Need advice?

We’re not your typical law firm

Despite what many law firm websites say, it can be very difficult to differentiate one firm from another. The more they claim to be different, the more similar they appear to be.

Let us introduce you to a genuinely different firm. A firm offering exceptional quality legal advice to its commercial and government clients from offices located in every Australian State and Territory. A firm delivering unrivalled value for money as a result of running its business in the same way that its clients do. A firm allowing all team members to reach their potential by rewarding and promoting talent solely on the basis of merit. A firm that is not distracted by overseas ambitions. A firm without a tenured sense of entitlement.

Let us introduce you to HWL Ebsworth Lawyers.

Our rapid rise to become the largest legal partnership in Australia* shows that in our case, the differences are real. Let us demonstrate how you can benefit from those differences.
