Cooper Grace Ward has been named one of Australia's fastest growing commercial law firms. We offer a full range of corporate and commercial services to Queensland and nationally-based clients. We have maintained a growth position in our marketplace and in December 2009 merged with Bain Gasteen Lawyers to create a firm of more than 220 people today, delivering an enhanced range of services and opportunities for our clients and our team members.
Since our origins in 1980 we have established a first-class reputation as a commercially-focused firm with the people, experience and resources to achieve excellent outcomes for our clients. We are committed to our clients' success, the development of our valued team members and our continuing role as our clients' business partner.
Throughout our history we have attracted a wide range of clientele, particularly financial institutions, property owners and developers, government clients, insurers, small to medium enterprises and private clients.
Our clear Purpose and Values have underpinned our success and our focus around people and client service strategies has delivered results for the firm at a national level.
In both 2009 and 2010, Cooper Grace Ward was named Best Australian Law Firm (revenue<$50m) in the BRW Client Choice Awards. What's so pleasing about this result is that it's based on direct feedback from our clients.
We have also been recognised as an Employer of Choice for Women by the Federal Government’s Equal Opportunity for Women in the Workplace Agency (EOWA) in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
These achievements reflect the value we place on relationships with our clients and our team members.
