Our Approach

We believe you can be the most effective in business through effective partnering. Our focus is working with you over the long term, so you can proactively manage your business.


Every professional service needs to understand their clients and how their clients’ business operation generates income. At Lawfield, we commit to understanding your business and our experience guides us to identify which legal services can ensure you achieve your objectives.

‘Top 4’ experience

At the senior level, Lawfield’s experience comes from partnership roles in successful law firms. This experience allows Lawfield to offer clients a level of expertise and experience that is usually not available to medium and small business.

Quality Practice Standards

Lawfield is an Approved Quality Practice under the Quality Practice Standard (QPS) of the Law Society of Western Australia. On 16 February 2010, Lawfield joined a select number of WA law firms to hold this accreditation.

QPS firms are able to better serve their clients by:

  • Adopting modern quality management principles,
  • Focusing on clients’ requirements and client care; and
  • Striving for consistency of service for all clients by all at the firm

Traditional values

At Lawfield, we uphold the traditional values of the legal profession.

We believe in excellent legal advice. We keep our knowledge up to date and ensure you get the best advice for your circumstances.

We believe that as a profession we have a duty to provide our services to people who need them, regardless of their means. We do that willingly and to their best of our capabilities as part of our allegiance to the community and to uphold one of the traditional obligations of the legal profession.

Practical advice & fees

Medium and small businesses need to be prudent with their legal budget. We aim to be accessible to our clients and provide ‘Top 4’ firm advice with smaller fees.

We apply our detailed and practical knowledge to identify effective solutions for the immediate, medium and long term.

This is why we prefer to avoid time based billing. This approach does not allow any lawyer to effectively partner with business. At Lawfield, the relationship determines the fee. We provide a range of fixed fee services so you know your exposure up front. Hourly rates apply for ongoing tasks or where the scope cannot be defined in advance.

We also do not charge for travel or minor disbursements.
