Maurice Blackburn Lawyers
Maurice Blackburn is proud to be Australia’s leading social justice law firm. We’ve built a reputation on the unwavering belief that the law should serve everyone, not just those who can afford it.
That’s why we’re here for everyday Australians who deserve to have their rights defended, people who deserve:
- The right to be free – to live without the threat of persecution or oppression.
- The right to feel safe – to live and work without physical or emotional threats.
- The right to be heard – to not be silenced by the wealthy, privileged or powerful.
- The right to equality – to be respected as human beings and free from prejudice.
In 1919, Maurice Blackburn – a man whose sense of civil liberty was ahead of his time – set the course for social justice in Australia. In the time since, his law firm has contributed to some of Australia’s most influential legal decisions, from the 40-hour week and equal pay for women and Indigenous workers, to the fight against patenting of human genes and the largest class action settlement in Australian history. And the legacy grows as we continue to protect the exploited, free the wrongfully detained and hold the big names to account. Although we’ve been leading the charge for almost a century now, as far as we’re concerned, the fight for fair has only just begun.
Today, Maurice Blackburn is a national firm with over 30 offices throughout Australia and more than 1000 of the country’s best and most respected legal professionals. We provide accurate and confidential advice without unnecessary legal jargon, and we recognise the varying financial circumstances of our clients and offer a flexible fee policy. We treat every client who walks through our door with the sincerity and respect they deserve
Halfpennys is a law firm that people feel comfortable coming to. Its partners — Richard Henschke and Cathy Spurr — are respected senior practitioners with more than 55 years experience between them. But they’re as welcoming to a young, first-time client as they are their very wealthy ones, many of whom have grown up with the firm.
Halfpennys was established in Darwin in 1977 by lawyer Neil Halfpenny. The firm moved from the original building in Woods Street to Mitchell Street in 1990 before moving to its current location at the beginning of 2018.
The firm has strong commercial, workers’ compensation, personal injury, leasing, and wills and estates practices and can help with most other general areas of law.
It’s the sort of firm the average Territory family could come to (if there is such a thing). That means, we don’t do things like offshore mergers because that’s not part of the average family picture.
What we do is very personal for us. We work for people — not clients — and we take their matters personally. We have a ‘care factor’ that’s not always there in larger firms because it can’t be. We’re a small firm because we believe in those values and want to keep delivering on them. The ‘big-firm culture’ is not for us; we know our clients value the partnership we have with them, the level of service they get and the price they pay for it. They’re not terribly interested in an enormous boardroom.
And we regard our people as people — not fee earners. Our team is loyal and dedicated to our clients and to the firm, and we support and cultivate them in return.
We also think it’s important to support the community we operate in and contribute by acting pro bono for organisations like the RSPCA and the NT’s Down Syndrome Association.
At Halfpennys you’ll get a highly experienced, stable, consistent and knowledgeable group of people who are genuinely interested in helping you get the best outcome. It doesn’t matter where you’re from or what you do.
Our purpose is to provide clients with legal advice that is reliable, practical, commercial, in plain English, timely and affordable. We aspire to foster trusted relationships with our clients and assist in solving challenges and realise opportunities.
