Law

We've got your back (even if it's hairy).
It’s always nice to know that someone’s got your back when it comes to your legal requirements.
When it comes to lawyers you’re usually glancing over your shoulder… at the clock. Not so with BlueRock Law.
Dispute Resolution and Litigation
Our Melbourne-based litigation lawyers are highly experienced in debt recovery, commercial dispute resolution, and insolvency restructuring and negotiations. We always take a commercial approach to each litigation case with a focus on being efficient, relentless and proactive.
Property Law
Our experienced property lawyers understand the internal demands of both legal and property functions, and work collaboratively to maximise outcomes for our clients’ businesses. Our team approach, combined with innovative digital technologies, allows us to deliver quick turnaround times, consistent best-practice leases, measurable results and outstanding value.
Commercial Law
Our in-depth knowledge of business acquisitions or divestments, private capital raisings or joint ventures, and restructures and investments means we understand how to get the best commercial outcomes for you and your business.
Employment Law
Our staff are our greatest asset and, as a result, our employee–employer relationships need protecting. But, because we’re human, employment law can be complex. As employee and employer needs change over time, we partner with our clients to maximise positive outcomes and smooth transitions for all involved.
We take the time to get to know you, your business and your golf swing.
From the cafe down the road (with the absolute best poached eggs in Melbourne) to large multi-national corporations. No matter how big or small your enterprise we can help you.

Process

We specialise in a range of legal services.
Our experienced legal professionals bill on a fixed-fee basis whenever possible, so you can trust you’ll get the best possible outcomes at a reasonable cost.

Law Team

Our progressive and dynamic team works with a range of clients. We're a friendly bunch!
We bring in other experts from the BlueRock community to give you the best advice in the quickest time. We like to think you can pull us out of your back pocket whenever you need help navigating a clear path through complex legal problems.

Some of Our Clients

We work with some pretty inspiring businesses.
We're proud of the community of entrepreneurs and business owners that we work alongside, and the businesses we're helping to build.

Testimonials

We love what we do, and apparently so do our clients.
As a first home buyer, the process was extremely up in the air, but Kim made this much easier. I felt at all times during the process she had an answer for me where needed. I also felt she was extremely good at prompting my brokers and the real estate into responding. I really appreciated Kim’s attitude towards assisting me in this process and was really happy with the outcome.

One thing I have appreciated about BlueRock is the wide range of services they do provide. Whether it's Digital or Accounting, supporting us as a hospitality business and how we structure our finances or looking at the digital platform we have to enable the businesses I've worked with to function well. They're a great team to work with and I highly recommend them.

The value we received from Bruce whilst setting up our franchise went beyond pure legal advice as his broader business knowledge added to our experience. Now that our system is up and running the BlueRock team are responsive, commercial in their advice and easy to work with.

Did you know?
BlueRock is a certified B Corp business.
Does that mean we didn’t make the ‘A-Team’? Far from it; landing a ‘B’ in this case is an affirmation of our commitment to being “a force for good” in the corporate arena.
