At McCullough Robertson, you can expect more. It’s what sets us apart and sees us work alongside clients that know it’s what you do outside the boardroom that makes a difference. We know it too.

We unlock new opportunities for our clients, creating meaningful and enduring partnerships for today, and tomorrow.

We empower our clients, extending beyond our expertise in the law. Because at McCullough Robertson, we know there’s more to success — and to life — than a legal outcome.

That’s why when you work with us, you get a team of professionals aligned with industries who understand it takes more than the law to move ahead. We truly believe it’s our business to understand our clients and give them the support they need when they need it, because empowering them to go further is what drives us to go further.

As a fiercely independent Australian-grown law firm, we deliver more than outcomes. We strive towards a diverse and inclusive environment that supports our values and creates a collaborative and innovative experience for our people, our clients, and our community partners. To achieve this, our Diversity and Inclusion strategy focusses on five key areas including gender, family and flexible work, disability and access, cultural diversity and people with diverse genders and sexualities

Our history

After 95 years we are still growing and evolving. We continue to provide commercial solutions for our clients —individuals as well as organisations — to see them through their most critical challenges.

Through hard work, good management and strong client relationships we have grown from serving the state’s primary producers to become Queensland’s largest law firm, expanding from a strong agribusiness focus to numerous other practice areas. We deliver solutions that challenge industry norms and contribute to shaping a future legacy for all legal professionals.

Our significant reach across Australia including Brisbane, Sydney, and Canberra, as well as our regional and international hubs, means our geographic spread and breadth of experience sees us actively traverse both nationally and internationally.

We have built a reputation for providing first-class advice that comes from a deep understanding of how external factors can affect our clients’ business and personal interests. It’s this pragmatic business approach that ensures we can provide the best possible outcome for all who work with us, and it will see us continue to protect, grow and plan with our clients well into the future.

Our values

Always putting our clients first and finding ways to elevate their business defines who we are and how we go about doing business.

We recognise the best way we can serve our clients is by serving our people. We pride ourselves on being an Employer of Choice that supports and enables our people to have successful and sustainable careers.

At McCullough Robertson, we don’t just commit to encouraging and nurturing our employees — regardless of gender, age or background — we follow through on it.

Our awards and certifications

Our dedication and commitment to unlocking success for our clients has seen us recognised as one of the best in the business. We take great pride in our achievements as we see our clients through their most critical challenges and create solutions worth celebrating.

At McCullough Robertson, we value and are committed to forging strong, long term and collaborative relationships with all people and organisations we do business with, including our third party suppliers – our business partners. We are committed to responding to the needs of our clients and conducting business in a safe, sustainable and equitable manner, consistent with all Australian and international laws, regulations, codes and standards relevant to our work. This is important to us.

To achieve this, we have developed a set of guiding principles outlined in our Statement of Business Ethics. We are committed to working with our business partners to enhance and develop their understanding of, and support their compliance with, these principles.

Ongoing improvement in sustainable practices is a key priority for us. We recognise how our social impact and the values we demonstrate contribute to our business strength and competitiveness.

In 2010 we were instrumental in helping to establish The Australian Legal Sector Alliance (AusLSA), with a mission to work collaboratively to inspire and facilitate more sustainable practices across the legal sector.  Initially AusLSA focused on the environment, but has since expanded to addressing other areas including our people, community, and governance.

We held Executive membership and a position on the Board of AusLSA for ten years, and currently hold General membership.

The AusLSA 2022 Legal Sustainability Update measures member’s commitments and performance against a range of sustainability issues including safe and inclusive workplace, community service and environmental conservation.

We embrace the opportunity to share our talents, our time and our resources to benefit the communities in which we live and work. We understand that what we do today and how we act and interact with others, leaves an indelible mark on the future. We are privileged to partner with a range of organisations, people and charities who make a real difference in our community.

Focusing on our four priority areas – sustainability, access to justice and community arts, health and mental health, and inclusion and diversity – our community strategy also helps our people find a stronger sense of purpose and meaning in what they do.
