How we can help

Finlaysons provides a full suite of legal services through our Darwin office. We have local practitioners who offer a range of services tailored to the Territory economy and community. They understand the local needs and outside of their legal practice are active members of the local community.

These practitioners are supplemented by the large array of talent that they are able to call upon from our Adelaide office. This includes a suite of practitioners who regularly visit the Territory.

We have a particular focus on the Territory business community and have strong relationships and ties with a range of significant businesses as well as membership of appropriate organisations.

Although our Territory office is located in Darwin we have a strong visiting presence in Alice Springs and regularly visit other Territory communities.

As well as providing front end services, we have extensive experience in appearing in all relevant Territory courts, Tribunals and Commissions, and are available to take agency work where appropriate.
