The founding philosophy of the firm was to provide indigenous people and their entities with forthright, comprehensive, accurate and culturally appropriate advice and representation in relation to their property and businesses.
When Marrawah Law entered the market there was a vast gap between client expectations of appropriate legal advice and what was being delivered. Marrawah Law had a number of points of difference from our competitors. We offered advice ‘on country’ by indigenous lawyers who knew first-hand the issues faced and who could provide advice when the client saw fit including outside of the usual Monday to Friday 9-5 routine.
We don’t set out to give our clients just a voice. We let them speak through us, in accordance with their laws, customs on country.
Marrawah Law has a strong sense of corporate social responsibility as one of its core values. We offer free seminars on topics such as directors duties and corporate governance. We also conduct significant amounts of pro bono work for clients without the financial means to access traditional legal services. In addition we speak each week on the National Talk Black radio show on the National Indigenous Radio Service and Bumma Bippera Media Aboriginal Corporation (98.7FM) speaking on day to day legal issues.
