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.
