Welcome to Sydney Lawyers

Welcome to the blog of Sydney Lawyers Pty Limited, a Sydney-based (obviously!) legal practice servicing small business and individual clients. We hope you enjoy your stay here.

Sydney Lawyers represents a new generation in legal services. We are technology-savvy and make full use of the latest in online research and practice methods to bring our clients the most cost-effective legal services available.

Each of our lawyers operates from a virtual office. We visit our clients at their home or business or at some other location convenient to them.

We keep our rent and overheads low, passing on the savings to our clients. The price difference is substantial. The average law firm in Sydney charges at an hourly rate of $350 per hour. Our hourly rate rarely exceeds $250 per hour. That means using our services could save you and your business thousands. And that means more money in your pocket.

But legal services are not just about price. At Sydney Lawyers, we pride ourselves in offering the best quality legal services. Our team of lawyers will pursue your rights vigorously, whilst providing you with independent and commercially realistic advice on the prospects of your matter.

And unlike other law firms, our lawyers have a life. Because we rarely set foot in an office (unless it be our client's office), we have a much more balanced lifestyle. We believe that work/life balance is an essential element to providing independent legal advice and services. Lawyers who are snowed under with work in an office often find it difficult to think outside the square and look beyond the limited choices and solutions provided by the law.

We insist that our lawyers have certain qualities:

  • They are actively involved in their local communities.
  • They only take on enough work to enable them to attend to family and personal commitments.
  • They constantly update their knowledge.
  • They develop an expertise in no more than 2 jurisdictions.
  • They read widely.
  • They be prepared to express their opinions on social, political and other topics in a passionate manner. No sychophants are welcome here.
Sydney is a fast-paced and fast-growing city. Sydney Lawyers aims to match that growth and diversity in its staff. At this stage, our staff speak Hindi, Urdu and Bahasa Indonesia. We hope to add other languages in the near future.

If you are interested in joining our practice, feel free to drop us a line or an e-mail. You can contact our principal, Irfan Yusuf, on 0414 355 786.

You can also contact Mr Yusuf if you wish to discuss your legal matters.

This blog will be updated on a daily basis. It will contain news, commentary and legal updates on a variety of areas. Your comments are always welcome.
