One Law. Marrawah Law

About Us

The founding philosophy of Marrawah Law was to provide Indigenous people and their entities with forthright, comprehensive, accurate and culturally appropriate advice and representation in relation to their property and businesses.

When Marrawah Law commenced practice, there was a vast gap between client expectations of appropriate legal advice and what was being delivered.

As an Indigenous woman and solicitor our principal knows how important it is to ‘do business the right way, not the easy way’.  This is the founding philosophy of the firm to provide culturally appropriate advice and representation in relation to indigenous people’s interests and for the advice to be given by people who know first-hand their experiences and who respect the client’s right to speak for themselves and self-determine.

Marrawah Law is a multi-award winning indigenous legal practice independently certified by Supply Nation as a 100% Indigenous-owned, controlled and managed company.

Marrawah Law means ‘One Law’. It is the bringing together of two nations’ laws. We offer commercially focused advice to clients throughout Australia with special expertise in the areas of commercial, corporate, property (including native title, cultural heritage and intellectual property), litigation; and family law.
