About Swaab

We are a mul­ti-award win­ning, com­mer­cial law firm.

Estab­lished in 1981 we have grown to become a haven for inno­va­tion, entre­pre­neur­ship, fam­i­ly busi­ness, SMEs, cor­po­rates, high-net-worth indi­vid­u­als and gov­ern­ment clients. We hold a unique posi­tion in the mar­ket place, as a firm with both full-ser­vice Com­mer­cial and Fam­i­ly law offer­ings. Our suc­cess has been a result of putting our peo­ple and clients first by liv­ing our val­ues of: Com­mit­ment, Integri­ty, Excel­lence, Gen­eros­i­ty of Spir­it, Uni­ty and Inno­va­tion. Our strong and endur­ing cul­ture has been the result of devel­op­ing and nur­tur­ing long-term client relationships.

Our key areas of prac­tice are fam­i­ly law, cor­po­rate, com­mer­cial, intel­lec­tu­al prop­er­ty and tech­nol­o­gy, employ­ment law, prop­er­ty, plan­ning, con­struc­tion, lit­i­ga­tion, insol­ven­cy and franchising.

We are a mem­ber of Mer­i­tas, a glob­al alliance of inde­pen­dent, full ser­vice law firms and are its only Syd­ney based mem­ber. This allows us to keep in touch glob­al­ly, pro­vide extend­ed ser­vices to our clients and gives us the expo­sure and oppor­tu­ni­ty to work with inter­na­tion­al businesses.
