The new Cornwalls Brisbane office, formerly McKays Brisbane, is well-positioned in the Queensland market as a boutique, full-service commercial law firm.

The Brisbane office was established in 1992 by current Partner, Ian Heathwood. The office found success in simplifying the traditional large firm approach, using a combination of technology, a flatter structure and more autonomy for lawyers. This also meant greater client communication, understanding and focus.

For Cornwalls Brisbane clients, the new firm means access to an existing team of experienced lawyers with the benefit of expanded capabilities through a full east-Australian presence, additional service areas and depth, plus a multidisciplinary corporate advisory arm in Cornwalls Capital.

New service areas such as financial technology, data management, privacy and a substantial tax specialty, help meet the changing and future needs of Queensland branch clients.

The Cornwalls Brisbane team is thrilled to have combined with Cornwall Stodart in Melbourne and Russell Lawyers in Sydney, and looks forward to continuing to deliver excellent legal services under their new shared banner, Cornwalls.
