A smart firm that knows their way around.

You establish a more personal relationship with the people that are there. I’ve dealt with the much larger firms and I’m finding that when we deal with the larger firms we become a number, but with Madgwicks they care about their client. Furthermore, there’s always opportunity for relevant networking or involvement – they seem to be switched on and tuned into where you are right at that time.

At Madgwicks we know business and we know Melbourne. From humble beginnings more than 45 years ago, we’ve travelled the long and bumpy road from when our two young founders first started out with nothing but a huge dose of courage and a hunger for legal problem-solving.

When in 1975, Peter Kennedy and Graeme Levy were given the choice as fledgling lawyers in their early twenties to purchase the flailing firm or have it shut down, the young lawyers seized the “once-in-a-lifetime” opportunity to purchase the Melbourne business. Fast forward nearly five decades, Madgwicks is an awarded firm of over 100 staff built on belief and aspiration to be the best we can be - something we strive to achieve for each of our clients.

We know that our clients want legal expertise, with a business eye, a commercial explanation, viable outcomes and alternative solutions. We know they also want a trusted advisor who can help them to prevent making uninformed decisions and, if things do get tough, they want a legal advisor who can shoulder their anxiety and provide a good level of comfort so they can sleep at night.

At Madgwicks, we focus on developing, nurturing and managing long-term relationships with our clients. We do this by being easy to work with at every step of the way; outcome focused to identify options and solutions; and by operating as an effective, passionate and highly connected team.

Everyone at Madgwicks is guided by these core principles because, in a nutshell, we care.

If you want to go far, you’re not alone. We’re here to help you at each goal and hurdle.
