It’s not all about the law – it’s also about contributing to our community in a meaningful way.
Proudly Supply Nation Certified, we are a 100% Indigenous owned and managed business that partners with community organisations and actively encourages our people to develop a passion for a charitable or community institution – and contribute wholeheartedly.
We’re committed to broadening and increasing Indigenous capacity across the private sector of the legal profession. We provide alternative career opportunities for Indigenous lawyers, law graduates and non-legal careers.
We aim to refer mandates to other Indigenous owned and managed legal practices and businesses for practice areas or locations outside our own expertise. Through our platform, we aim to advocate to increase the engagement of Indigenous law firms and businesses by corporations and government departments.
We utilise Indigenous suppliers for appropriate products or services provided directly to our own business.
If you are an Indigenous business or supplier who is interested in providing goods or services to us, or would like to explore an opportunity to collaborate, please contact us to explore how we can work together.
Our team manages and promotes social and community initiatives to raise awareness and funds for a range of charitable and community institutions – and we are keen to increase our community impact wherever possible. Reach out to our team below if you would like us to collaborate with you.
