SWS Lawyers are delighted to announce that we have been selected as a finalist for the Australian Law Awards 2022 in the category of Regional Law Firm of the Year for a fifth consecutive year.

This award recognises outstanding performance by a law firm operating in regional Australia.

Derek Charge, Managing Principal, stated:
“While our greatest satisfaction comes from the outstanding results we deliver for our clients and the opportunities we are able to provide to our lawyers to work with clients of the highest calibre, this industry recognition, 5 years in a row, is definitely appreciated by the team at SWS Lawyers”.

We pride ourselves on providing specialised legal services to our clients, rivalling those offered by top-tier firms in Sydney and around Australia, from our regional base.  We are pleased to have built long-standing relationships with individuals and businesses across a wide range of industries. While the core of our client base is in Newcastle and the Hunter region, we often act for a range of national and international businesses and investors.

Principal, Richard Suters, said:
"One of the most satisfying aspects of being a finalist again is the recognition that our team remains consistently at the forefront of the provision of legal services in regional Australia.  The team works tirelessly to ensure our clients can access genuinely specialist advice in a regional location”.

As always, we thank our clients for their ongoing support of SWS Lawyers and the fantastic opportunities they provide to our team to undertake interesting and challenging legal work. We could not achieve this recognition without them.
