Lander & Rogers is a leading independent Australian law firm, comprising over 600 people including 94 partners.
We have grown organically, resulting in a highly cohesive firm sharing a strong work and client service ethic, as well as high staff and partner retention rates. We believe that legal services involve more than just the law – practical, commercial advice and exceptional client experience are equally important to our clients and to us.
Our firm is global in its approach, but we remain fiercely independent and truly Australian. We work closely with international firms that do not have an Australian presence, and we are the exclusive Australian member of the largest global network of independent law firms, TerraLex.
Consistent with our values and culture, we are strongly committed to pro bono & community work and supporting our environment. We also established Australia's first LawTech Hubs in Melbourne and Sydney. Our key sectors are Government, Insurance & Financial Services, Real Estate, Retail & Supply Chain and Technology.
