It’s not every day you can walk into a law firm and be greeted by an excitable Jack Russell Terrier who loves nothing more than showing her delight in meeting you by munching on your shoelaces while you discuss business. That, along with the welcoming smile of Sue, makes Hardwood Andrews an anomaly in Albury.
Utilising technologies that allow clients access to expert lawyers in the fields of commercial law, workplace relations, tax and superannuation, intellectual property, wills and estates, conveyancing and family law – their capabilities are increased beyond the realms of Albury’s stylish and welcoming office.
Principal Lawyer, Allison, is proud of the Company’s B Corporation certification – with their business revolving around the four pillars of Environment, Staff, Community and Shareholders. To maintain this certification, the business must meet the high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency.
So no reams of paper taking up every desk space, nor stodgy and stuffy lawyers around this office –the lawyers are all hands on – you hire them, you don’t get their assistant, to crossing the road to grab a coffee from a local café, to being members of a number of volunteer organisations, the staff and the overall environment within Hardwood Andrews are dedicated to providing the highest quality service to all who enter their doors and the community in which they live.
We are delighted to announce that Harwood Andrews have now opened an office in the Albury region.
Harwood Andrews is Victoria’s largest firm with a head office based in a regional centre and is progressive in working to provide positive commercial solutions for our clients.
Our head office is based in Geelong, and we also have offices in Ballarat and Melbourne. We build lasting relationships and provide innovative, expert services to our business, private and statutory clients. We work for our Albury clients in the areas of commercial law, workplace relations, tax and superannuation, intellectual property, wills and estates, conveyancing and family law. Our services extend further than just providing legal advice and are always client focused.
We have a diverse team of over 170 talented people, consisting of 12 individual Law Institute of Victoria accredited specialists who hold specialisations in 9 distinct legal areas.
As a firm we adopt a socially responsible attitude and are an active and respected part of the communities in which we operate. We give advice to many Australian charities and not-for-profit organisations.
We are committed to change and ensuring that we have a positive impact on the environment and the communities in which we work and live. We encourage every employee to play a part in making this a reality. That’s why we have become a B Corporation.
B Corporation certification is issued to businesses by the not-for-profit B Lab. To be certified as a B Corporation, a business must meet high standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency. We are really proud of this certification and plan to use it as a measurement tool to continue to improve our impact on the environment and our communities.
