ABOUT US

About Us

SLG Lawyers is an innovative commercial law firm based in Sydney.

Getting legal advice is usually costly and painful. Lawyers are often criticised for neglecting and exploiting their clients, offering only reactive advice (‘damage control’, instead of prevention) and being too uncommercial. It’s no surprise that clients become frustrated and only approach lawyers as a last resort. We like to say that “99% of lawyers give 1% a bad name”.

We are here to change that. We provide a modern approach by :

  1. offering proactive advice, aimed to preventing a problem rather than just cleaning up the mess afterwards;
  2. agreeing to fixed fees, which gives you security and forces us to work efficiently (no one likes surprise bills);
  3. prioritising your commercial considerations over anything else; and
  4. guaranteeing fast response times and availability.

By doing the above, we build trust and generally improve the lawyer-client relationship. This allows us to provide you with more value and reduce your stress.

If you are tired of getting a bad service or have had enough of the outdated traditional law firms, please contact us today.
