Our Core Values form the foundation on which we perform work and conduct ourselves.


Our people are our greatest and most valuable asset.


We strive to provide the highest quality service and client experience. We are continuously improving.


We firmly believe that a Lawyer’s role is to help people identify causes of potential legal problems before they arise, not just to find the best solution once the problem has manifested.
If you can’t rely on your Lawyer to help you identify legal risks and foreseeable problems who can you rely on?


Care and attention to detail can never be overstated. It is our responsibility to consider and advise our clients of relevant implications in a worst case scenario.


Our culture is vibrant. We are willing to change or try something new if there is a better way.


We deliver when we say we will deliver, keep our clients informed and return calls promptly.


We honour the tenets of our profession and acknowledge the impact of our actions on those we come into contact with and the greater community. We respectfully uphold our ethical duties at all times.

Our Commercial Litigation, Building & Construction, Business Services and Insolvency Teams are headed by Sam Roberts, a NSW Law Society Accredited Specialist.

Sam Roberts is 1 of only 3 Accredited Specialists in Commercial Litigation in the Newcastle, Hunter Valley and Central Coast regions.


What is an Accredited Specialist?

In the legal profession, Accredited Specialists are practising Solicitors who have demonstrated proficiency in a particular area of law, which is recognised and conferred by fellow Solicitors.
Specialist Accreditation is a structured peer to peer assessment process enabling legal practitioners to be recognised for their expertise. To be accredited specialists must pass a series of meticulous assessments on both legal knowledge and its application in practice. To retain their accreditation specialists must undertake significant additional professional development in their area of expertise each year.
Specialist Accreditation helps Solicitors distinguish themselves from other practitioners. It is a nationally recognised mark of distinction run by state based Solicitor Associations. In New South Wales the Specialist Accreditation Scheme has been operated by the Law Society of NSW since 1992.

Why use an Accredited Specialist?

To gain Specialist Accreditation a Solicitor must pass rigorous assessments in communication, problem solving, client relations and, of course, the law.
To maintain accredited status, a Solicitor must annually renew a certificate to practice the law and membership of the Law Society, plus update his or her skills and knowledge at the specialist level.

If your business has a commercial dispute that deserves the attention of an expert, you need an Accredited Specialist in Commercial Litigation.
