ABOUT US

Legal services done differently

We are an entrepreneurial mesh of curious legal minds. We hail from national firms and in-house appointments across an array of industry verticals. We are specialist, commercially minded legal talent and we love what we do.

We merge strong fundamentals in commercial and corporate law and other “traditional” legal disciplines with specialist legal expertise in digital law and emerging technology.

Our approach is multidisciplinary and blended across strategic and complementary capabilities. Legal expertise is but one of several arrows in our quiver. We enjoy collaborative and enriching partnerships with our preferred partners to produce cohesive strategies for regulatory engagement, communication and recruitment.

Above all, we are fun. We take law and strategy seriously, but our clients enjoy working with us because we believe when you work with passion, integrity and good humour, magic happens.
