About Us

Business Law

At J.A. Fillmore & Co. we understand law. But more than that, we also understand business. We recognize in business that time is valuable, that fast turnaround times and accurate but succinct advice are valuable to you, and that whether you’re involved in a merger or acquisition, negotiating a new IT contract or just have a short question to answer, experience counts. When you need urgent advice, we’re only a phone call or an email away. Read more about our Business Law services

Property Law

Our team has over 80 years experience with the big picture and the details. Whether you’re buying, selling, leasing or developing any kind of residential, commercial or industrial property, or handling a planning issue, we’ve done it before and will do it again. We have the expertise and personnel to manage the big deals and the small ones alike. Read more about our Property Law experience

Litigation

Winning is habit-forming. With us, the client comes first, and we will never lose sight of the fact that our goal is to do the best thing by our client, and that litigation or any other dispute resolution method is merely the means to that end. As a specialist boutique firm we successfully run complex cases with less overhead than a larger firm could manage. Need advice on Litigation?

Intellectual Property

We understand the value of ideas. Intellectual property is about more than owning a trade mark, copyright material, patent or registered design. It can be the most valuable property a business possesses, an integral part of a business’ goodwill, but because it is intangible it can also be the easiest property to lose, damage or mismanage. Find out more how you could benefit from our Intellectual Property expertise.

International Experience

At J.A. Fillmore & Co. we regularly deal with people and companies outside Australia, from China to the United States, from Switzerland to Chile, from New Zealand to the United Kingdom. Our experience and ability with international transactions is rare for a firm of our size.

Besides our legal experience in international transactions, our team also has direct international business experience, which helps us better understand our clients’ needs and concerns in this arena. Whether your company is Australian-based and looking outwards, or overseas-based and looking for Australian representation, you’re in good hands with J.A. Fillmore & Co.
