At Colin Biggers & Paisley, we’re here to make a difference. We are a unique legal practice that believes in what we do. This applies to the solutions we create for our clients, the contribution we make to our communities and the careers we build for our people.
At Colin Biggers & Paisley, our people are given every opportunity - for both career progression and personal growth. We have many partners and managers who commenced their careers here as junior lawyers. We give everyone the opportunities and support to grow and establish quality careers with us.
At Colin Biggers & Paisley, we truly believe that being a mid-size legal practice is an advantage. Our structure allows us to offer a more holistic service to our clients and a better place to work for our people. Our size allows us to remain personable and well connected with our colleagues and to our clients. It is rewarding to see our clients continue to succeed and benefit through working with us.
Our desire to be leaders in all that we do drives us to continue to improve what is already a successful and established legal practice. It is this ambition that saw us be the first legal practice to create an online property contract exchange platform, revolutionising the way real estate is bought and sold throughout Australia and the rest of the world. It is this drive that saw us be the fastest growing legal practice in Australia. Over the past five years, we have more than doubled our partner and employee numbers and continue to grow.
INCLUSION AND DIVERSITY
Our goal is to create a company as diverse as the world around us. We believe in equality and provide all employees with opportunities to build and advance their careers in a way that is meaningful and fair.
“Diversity” to us means diversity in gender, age, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation and ability, and “inclusion” for us means inclusion for all. We are committed to fostering a truly diverse workforce that is inclusive of everyone. Our aim is to be recognised as a leading provider of inclusion and diversity in the legal profession.
Nothing motivates lawyers more than the ability to make an impact - on the law, legal systems and people’s lives. Making an impact is at the very core of why we do what we do. We have the ability to help disenfranchised and disadvantaged people in our community.
Here, you’ll find a legal practice that is at the very forefront of the law. You’ll also see a diverse group of people who are motivated to make a difference and who enjoy working together.
Our staff reflect the variety of backgrounds that characterise the Australian population. We believe new ideas stem from diverse perspectives. It’s these differences that help us acquire and retain top talent, build the best teams for our clients and deliver service of the highest calibre.

WORK SMART PLAY HARD
Many businesses say that work/life balance is important, but for us it is a priority. We work hard for our clients. But we also make sure our people have everything they need to relax, recharge and have fun. We put people first. After all, it is our people who have made our business into the success it is today.
We believe in a workplace that inspires our people. Our offices in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney CBD locations encourage creativity, collaboration and productivity.
We understand the importance of building and maintaining relationships with our colleagues, and we like to have fun doing so. Whether it’s relaxing with a drink on a Friday night, joining our all-star netball team or enjoying a complimentary massage, Colin Biggers & Paisley offers a suite of unique employee benefits.
