We are very pleased to announce that SWS Lawyers has been selected as a finalist in the Australian Law Awards 2020 in the category of Regional/Suburban Law Firm of the Year for the third consecutive year.

We are proud to be recognised for providing high quality and specialised legal services that rival those offered by top-tier firms in Sydney and around Australia.  Our team prides itself on understanding the needs of our clients and delivering exceptional legal services from our regional location.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have operated seamlessly to provide timely and reliable legal advice to our clients. SWS Lawyers were well placed to pivot to our client’s changing needs during this time because of the forward-looking investment we made in technology when our firm was established.  We have always prioritised providing legal services in an innovative client-focused way.

Richard Suters, Managing Principal, said this industry recognition reflects the outstanding efforts and expertise of the SWS team.  “Being named as a finalist in the Lawyers Weekly Australian Law Awards once again acknowledges the hard work of our team in achieving our firm’s goal of providing genuine specialist expertise in a regional setting," Richard said.

"Thanks to the loyalty, quality and resilience of our clients, our team’s commitment to work flexibly to support them and the excellent relationships we have with our fellow professionals and co-advisors, we have continued to perform interesting and complex work during these unprecedented times."

We are honoured to be considered once again for this prestigious award and are keeping our fingers crossed for success at the virtual awards ceremony on Friday, 7 August.
