Who we are
We are a team of highly skilled and experienced lawyers, with 95% of our lawyers being at the Director and Senior Associate level.
In contrast to many law firms, we do not have a ‘pyramid’ structure with a few skilled Partners and Directors at the top, and then cascading levels of experience down to a bottom level of mostly junior people. Rather we aim for the opposite. Our specific strategy, and one of our points of difference in WA, is that we have actively created an entire team of top level / experienced lawyers. Our lawyers advise professional industry bodies, sit on business boards, teach at WA law schools, and sit on committees advising the courts how to improve efficiencies. Our experience spans property advice on large scale developments, to fighting and winning some of WA’s leading cases.
This means that the advice we give you will be on point, practical and will be the result of many years of experience. This is strengthened by our collaborative approach. We collaborate with a team of outstanding external barristers, experts and consultants, including other law firms, so that you always have access to the best people in their respective fields. You will get the right advice, quickly, based on decades of experience. You will not get a junior lawyer struggling with their first case representing you in court, or advising you how to set up your business structure.
We are a team of 32 real people, with lives and interests inside, and outside, the legal and business communities in WA. We are personally involved in a variety of businesses and industries from the wine industry to property investment.
We believe that success is a result of the right people who have the right attitude. These are people who enjoy being lawyers, who like working at Cullen Macleod, who enjoy continuous learning, who are quick thinkers and problem solvers. These are the people that you can trust to assist you and make your particular transaction or issue a successful one.
