Law Squared

Location: Melbourne, Vic.

Similar to Legalite, Law Squared is another good option for small businesses, and also have a spin-off business for startups called ‘Cubed’. It has a broader range of services than Legalite and is a multi-city practice. However, it has fewer reviews for us to judge them by than Legalite.

Overall, Law Squared has a good reputation for providing fixed fees and going against the grain of traditional law firms – and their clients seem to love their work.

10. Russells


Location: Brisbane & Sydney.

Russells is another great option if you’re looking for a commercial law firm with a good track record for delivering on client experience.

Notably, their clients consider them to be inexpensive and good value – but the sample size on price is quite low so bear that in mind. They typically charge on an hourly rate, so if you want a fixed fee they might not be the provider for you.

A great feature of the firm is that you’ll be working directly with some of the best senior lawyers in Sydney – it’s not a classic pyramid structure.
