Your Law Firm
Over the last decade, the legal profession has become widely recognised as a ‘toxic profession’. Client demands for lower costs and the struggle for firms to maintain a competitive edge have resulted in more aggressive budgets and longer working hours across the board. Concurrently, the support available to lawyers has been significantly reduced by the need to minimise company overheads and expenditure.
Your Law Firm is a client-focused network of forward-thinking lawyers which aims to revolutionise the practice of law in Australia. By promoting values such as lifestyle and freedom of choice, and enabling practitioners to dictate their own working hours, the Your Law Firm network is all about providing you with the support you need to achieve a more fulfilling professional and personal life balance.
