What our clients say:

We needed legal assistance with our property portfolio, including high value leasing transactions in Australia and New Zealand. We wanted to find effective and reliable lawyers we could trust. What I found was that Paine Ross & Co are brilliant. They are not only reasonably priced, they do a great job in a timely manner and are so easy to deal with – and they make my job easier! I particularly like how responsive and approachable they are. We have been their client for many years now and I would recommend Paine Ross & Co to any business needing legal input on property matters.

– Danny S (Group Head of Property of an ASX 100 company) 

As a developer, we need reliable and effective property lawyers to partner with us on our projects. We chose Paine Ross & Co for their wide industry experience and commercial approach. Liz and David are a pleasure to deal with and have been our lawyers for many years now. They are always responsive, approachable, practical and effective with whatever legal advice or transactional services we need. They are our trusted advisors to help us with all our legal needs. If anyone is looking for a law firm to assist with property related legal work, you can’t go past Paine Ross & Co.

– Simon S (Director of an Australian property development company)

We were looking for lawyers to provide property-related legal advice and to act on property related transactions like acquisitions, disposals and leasing transactions. We wanted experts with broad industry experience, preferably with a large firm background, but with the responsiveness and partner accessibility of a smaller firm.  Paine Ross & Co ticked all the boxes, and more. Their experienced team is always on hand with fast, practical, sensible and efficient advice, providing us for many years now with the experience and quality of a big firm, at a fraction of the cost. I would strongly recommend Paine Ross & Co to anyone looking for a property lawyer.
