The Firm


Clifton is a specialist business law firm committed to serving its clients. We provide corporate and commercial legal services, and act for a range of clients in Australia and overseas. 

Our core strength resides in a balanced mix of business acumen and technical excellence. On a deal this means keeping the value proposition to our client front-of-mind, securing our client’s material interests in negotiations, and making sure that the legal documentation captures the transaction and protects our client’s interests in a clear and concise manner.

We aim to develop long-term relationships with our clients, and work closely with our clients to gain the knowledge and understanding necessary for us to provide them with excellent advice based squarely on their needs.

We offer the benefits of a small specialist law practice, and make up any resourcing limitations through relations that we have with leading law practises including internationally recognised firm Pinsent Masons (Australia) to whom we consult via their market leading Vario service. These relationships allow us to cover areas of specialist expertise like tax, environment and litigation, and to make available wider resources if and when our clients require this.  Where we engage the services of other firms we are careful in choosing the lawyers we work with, and manage the services diligently.
