Pointon Partners is a medium sized full service legal firm and leading provider of legal services to business and their stakeholders.
Since its establishment over 20 years ago, Pointon Partners has kept a constant focus on partnering with clients and building long term relationships to help them grow their businesses and achieve successful outcomes. Through its clients’ success, Pointon Partners has grown and achieved its own success, staying true to its firm identity statement:
“More than a law firm, we’re your legal partner. An extension of your team. Your success is our success. That’s what drives us to be the best.”
Pointon Partners offers the expertise and experience of a top tier law firm, coupled with the personal service and attention that can only be offered by an expert, smaller firm. Our lawyers are technically excellent in their areas of expertise, but more importantly for our clients, they are genuinely concerned with the application of the law in the ‘real world’ to achieve results. We are outcome-focused and commercially-minded, helping clients achieve their goals or solve their problems in the most effective and efficient manner is our key objective.
Our clients comprise some of the largest and best known Australian companies, publicly listed companies, small to medium businesses, private clients and individuals.
We act in matters in all Australian jurisdictions and also internationally, with appropriate legal representatives in those jurisdictions. We are also a member of LAWORLD (www.laworld.com), an international legal network of almost sixty independent law firms covering most major commercial centres around the world. Our active membership of LAWORLD allows us to provide our clients with instant access to quality local legal advice virtually anywhere in the world.
We also have a particular interest in assisting clients in entrepreneurial businesses and are very proud to be the official exclusive legal partnership of Entrepreneur Organisation (EO) Victorian Chapter (www.eonetwork.org/). EO Victorian Chapter is part of a global organisation that provides mentoring to entrepreneurs worldwide.
Pointon Partners is proud to announce that The Legal 500 has ranked the firm in the “Top 5” legal firms in Australia in Real Estate for the 2018 year. The firm has also been recognised as a “Leading Firm” for the 2018 year.
The Legal 500 is widely acknowledged as the world’s largest legal firm referral guide that ranks firms based on extensive industry research and client feedback.
Pointon Partners Lawyers is the only smaller firm in the 2018 rankings list, which includes mostly larger top tier national and multinational firms.
This result helps to highlight Pointon Partners’ reputation for offering the expertise and experience of a large firm in a dedicated and personalised way that can only be offered by a smaller boutique firm.
As part of the 2018 judging process, The Legal 500 obtained feedback from over 250,000 clients. They also obtained information about the firms, as well as property deals/matters they were involved in in the last 12 months, which were independently assessed/verified by Legal 500 researchers.
We would like to thank those clients who were involved in The Legal 500 interview process and congratulate our property team for receiving this recognition.
A great achievement.

The development of global markets means that many of our clients do business in different jurisdictions. To respond to the needs of our clients we are members of an international legal group called LAWorld (www.laworld.com). Pointon Partners Managing Director Anthony Pointon is the head of LAWorld Asia Pacific and Pointon Partners itself is the Victoria representative. LAWorld is a premier international legal network of almost sixty independent law firms covering most major commercial centers around the world. With more than 1350 lawyers across 100 cities, LAWorld´s mission is to provide clients and other lawyers with instant access to quality local legal advice virtually anywhere in the world.
Our active membership of such an organisation enables us to provide added value to our clients by referring them to a firm in a foreign jurisdiction, safe in the knowledge that our member colleagues have similar levels of service to our own. In particular, all members have broadly based commercial, corporate and business practices with litigation capabilities and can help our clients with issues such as cross border transactions, business migration or international contracts. Like us, our LAWorld colleagues have a strong commitment to the use of the latest technology and have English speaking lawyers who communicate efficiently with us.
