About us

DibbsBarker is an Australian commercial law firm known for its strategic focus on key industry areas – Financial Services, Insurance, Life Sciences & Healthcare and Property.

To help you achieve your business goals, we believe our lawyers need to be part of your industry. By understanding the challenges and developments occurring in your industry, we are able to balance the legal issues with the broader factors that may influence your outcomes.

To better understand your business strategy and imperatives, we form strong relationships and foster true collaboration. We care about your success, so we assemble the right team to work with you and develop innovative solutions to address your challenges.

We are down-to-earth and flexible, adapting our recommendations and services to your needs. Open communication with your lawyers is integral to your success: that’s why our advice will always be explicit, clearly showing you the implications of our recommendations.

You will find us easy to work with and trust us to deliver on our promises. We are in regular contact with you and honest about our capabilities, so there are no nasty surprises. We commit to deliver the outcomes you expect, when you expect them, and at competitive rates.
