Finlaysons is proud of the rich history and legacy which came before us. A history which involves overcoming challenges, reinvention, innovative decisions and hard work. Values which are still a part of the Finlaysons DNA, 150 years later.
Our roots are in South Australia. Finlaysons has one of the most recognisable brands in the SA legal market. However, through expansion and opportunity we have grown into one of Australia’s most respected major commercial law firms.
Finlaysons has been involved in numerous landmark projects which have contributed to the transformation of clients, industries and the wider community. As active members of the legal community and the industries we practice, Finlaysons continues to play a role in the evolution of Australia’s legal framework.
Today, we have a team of over 100 staff which includes 23 partners. We have the resources and expertise required to add value in all areas of business. We adopt a cohesive full service working model to ensure the right lawyers are involved and that the best possible balance between cost and value is able to be achieved at all times.
As a firm, we are driven by achieving excellent outcomes for our clients. We are privileged to have such longstanding client relationships where we have been involved in momentous stages of their business life cycle from overcoming tough issues to celebrating the successes, and everything in between.
We assist both exporters and importers to navigate the regulatory and legal challenges facing the sector and to provide guidance and develop solutions in relation to the complexities of interstate and international trade (including food trust and assurance), commercial domestic and foreign investment, capital raising, tax structuring, research, development, and deployment of new technologies, business structure and sale, intellectual property / branding protection and enforcement and data and cyber threats.
The South Australian power system has recently undergone a rapid transformation into one of the most technologically diverse power systems, with some of the highest levels of renewable penetration, anywhere in the world.
Like all good health professionals, our Health team takes a holistic approach and believes that prevention is better than cure. Our specialist and multi-disciplinary Health team understands the commercial imperatives and structural complexities of the health sector in Australia, as well as the significant government and public scrutiny it faces.
