Despite our regional location we are not a small firm. With over 30 staff working for us, we provide legal services to large family businesses, corporations and institutions across Queensland. Our firm is large enough that we do have the luxury of being able to develop expertise in our favoured area of law. You will not need to be a “jack of all trades”. 

We have an enviable client base and we work on high quality matters. The firm’s Partners are approachable and have an open door policy and we value our people.  Our Partners encourage a healthy, balanced lifestyle for all staff and support this by providing “lifestyle package benefits”.

We have a great firm culture, making us an employer of choice in our region.
