a national legal firm
gadens lawyers is a top 10 law firm in Australia. The Firm was ranked by ‘The Australian' as the second fastest growing law firm in the country (December 2005). Our offices are in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide, Cairns and Port Moresby.
With a number of recent significant ‘lateral acquisitions' complementing our own in-depth expertise, particularly in the corporate area, gadens lawyers is ideally placed as a credible alternative to the ‘mega' firms by providing cost effective expert legal advice to institutional, corporate and other major clients while still maintaining a mid tier firm's service-based, accessible culture.We do not carry the large and expensive overhead that many of our competitors carry. Rather, our emphasis is on efficiency and leverage.
Our overhead structure enables hands on partner involvement giving exposure to the experience and expertise of senior lawyers. Where the quality and service outcomes will not be reduced, we allocate work appropriately to our team members to minimise client costs. We operate as a business and proactively work to understand the environment in which our clients operate. Like you, we operate as a business. Our partners and legal staff concentrate on ensuring superior legal service is delivered to all our clients, as the operational day to day functions such as, resource allocation, disciplinary actions and performance appraisals (in conjunction with the partners) are undertaken by the Management team. Our flat non-hierarchical business management structure allows us to make, and action, decisions quickly.
