Industries in focus

Evolve always

We work with clients who lead, challenge and reshape their own industries. To help them thrive, we also have to understand – really understand – the often fast-changing sectors they operate in.

In the industries we focus on, we have deep, multi-disciplinary experience. We’re also genuinely interested in industry developments and actively share our knowledge about evolving trends, legal implications and horizon issues.

Inclusion and diversity

Diversity and inclusion are vital components of our practice of Smarter Law and our ambition to be a pre-eminent law firm.

We are committed to creating and maintaining a diverse and inclusive workforce that reflects our people, our clients and our community.

Our inclusive culture enables us to recognise and celebrate the characteristics that make each individual different and create a workplace environment in which both individuals and groups feel welcome, respected and valued.

Focus on these areas helps us to support and empower our people to bring their whole selves to work and to achieve their greatest potential.

This supports us attracting, retaining and engaging the best talent and leveraging the diversity offered by our people to build stronger relationships and deliver Smarter Law to our clients.

We have four areas of focus that help us achieve our inclusive culture:

History

Since we were established more than 100 years ago, we’ve evolved into a full-service commercial firm with offices across Australia.

Alumni

Our alumni are our connection with our past, present and future.

We celebrate the success of our alumni and our alumni program allows us to keep in touch with former colleagues and provide networking opportunities.
