HBA Legal

HBA Legal
Employer of Choice 2020

HBA Legal has developed competency frameworks to guide its solicitors through a learning journey focusing on behaviours, skills, and knowledge; focusing on upskilling its partners, special counsel, and senior associates to become true people leaders. The firm’s One HBA business model removes boundaries, allowing employees to learn from a range of people across the organisation.

HBA Legal’s promotion policy provides clear direction for lawyers seeking to progress their career while a formal performance planning and appraisal process enables staff to have clear objectives, actions, and measures of success, while informing the business of their personal ambition.

HBA Legal implements values-based pricing, which also means employees are paid by their output rather than hours worked. This encourages people to work flexibly, including those who are returning to work after starting a family. Investment in technology also supports flexible work.

To demonstrate its commitment to diversity and inclusion, HBA Legal has recently created an official D&I policy, signed on as a sponsor of Australia’s first and only LGBTIQ+ law association, Pride in Law, and inked the Law Council of Australia’s Diversity and Equality Charter.
