Our Team

ethics4lawyers is a groundbreaking firm, uniquely placed to equip Australian legal practitioners and law firms with a timely and cost-effective ONE-STOP SHOP for legal ethics advice, information and education services to add value to our clients' legal practices.

We have more than 18 years combined experience in advising, counselling, assisting and training lawyers about their professional ethical obligations including the practical application of ethics in daily legal practice.

We have strong long-standing reputations within the legal profession as “go to” people for objective advice and guidance on legal ethics issues. Within the Australian legal profession, there are only a very limited number of solicitors who have this kind of professional expertise and skill.
