Australia’s fastest-growing law firms revealed

15 firms showed the profession how to flourish in a trying time

Australia’s fastest-growing law firms revealed

Australasian Lawyer highlights the 15 fast-growing firms that set the bar for the Australian legal profession in this year’s Fast Firms report.

At its onset, the COVID-19 pandemic was expected to cripple the legal industry the way it had caused so many other sectors to struggle. However, despite its reputation as an industry that was slow to adapt to technology, the legal sector found itself to be quite adaptable – a number of firms were able to tweak existing arrangements to make things easier for clients and maintain a human connection, while international expansion became an option as the barriers created by the requirement of a physical presence were broken down.

Taking a people-focused approach, many firms also launched a variety of initiatives to ensure that staff were doing well in a period of isolation and to improve accountability despite people not being in the office. As a result, firms were able to not only retain current talent, but attract new ones as well.

Chamberlains was one firm that modified its health and wellness initiatives in line with the current needs of staff. According to managing director Stipe Vuleta, COVID-19 allowed the firm to “grow more empathetic as an organisation and has seen our staff really rally together despite the negative impacts of isolation and uncertainty.”

Kalus Kenny Intelex Lawyers and Law Quarter also showcased their momentum and resilience over the 2020-2021 financial year by recording strong performances during a trying time.
