Our perspective is that practising law is a privilege and an art as much as a commercial endeavour. A good lawyer provides more than just legal advice. A good lawyer is a personal confidant who provides wise counsel and practical solutions to their clients. A good lawyer is agile and flexible and will take care of clients’ needs discretely and advocate fiercely when necessary.
The idea of excellence in legal practice and being a good lawyer is at the heart of every relationship that we have with our clients.
Warlows Legal is an agile law firm which embraces technology and artificial intelligence. Many of our clients are start-up companies developing cutting-edge technology on a limited budget. We respect our clients’ business needs and take a pragmatic approach to costs. We operate efficiently and always seek out new ways of working.
We aspire to be one of Australia’s few carbon-neutral law firms. We encourage our staff to learn new languages, including programming languages. We encourage diversity and our firm operates in a non-hierarchical structure where new ideas are fostered. We are constantly looking to innovate the way we deliver legal services.
As lawyers we hold privileged knowledge of the laws that bind our community together. At Warlows Legal we seek to use our knowledge and resources to assist the vulnerable in our community. We are proud members of the ‘1% pledge’ and donate 10% of our profits to charitable causes. We support indigenous rights and encourage our staff to learn about indigenous language and culture. We aim to establish a pro-bono clinic where we can offer our legal services to members of the public free of charge as part of our commitment to access to justice for all. We are involved in the legal policy and advocacy work of the Law Institute of Victoria.
Representative of Warlows Legal sit on the Institute’s Human Rights Committee, Environmental Issues Committee and Building and Construction Working Group. We fiercely support the individual rights and freedoms that form the basis of our free society. As lawyers we are the custodians of these freedoms and maintain a watching brief to ensure that they are upheld.
