R.G.WILLIAMS & ASSOCIATES Client Trusted Representation
It is important to understand the structure of the Australian legal market. The "top tiers" are the leading law firms in Australia and are full service firms. "Mid-tier" law firms are relatively largish firms but are usually not full service firms. Boutique law firms typically specialise in a few areas. Medium firms commonly have 10-20 lawyers, but don't have the brand name to fit into the "mid-tier" category.
