Salvos Legal

    OverviewSuggest Edit

    We are a revolutionary law firm. We practice in the areas of commercial and property transactional law on a paid basis.  However, all of our fees (net of expenses) are used to fund the operations of our ‘legal aid’ sister firm, Salvos Legal Humanitarian, which is a full service free law firm for the disadvantaged and marginalised in NSW and Queensland.  Both firms are solely owned by The Salvation Army. Our partners are specialists in commercial and property law, having worked in national/top tier firms and/or in-house legal departments.  Our target markets are property and commercial transactional work for the corporate, government and not-for-profit/church group sectors.  We are rapidly growing, and already enjoy having institutional clients such as the Commonwealth Bank of Australia (CBA), Transport for NSW and Community Sector Banking and Anglicare (Diocese of Sydney). Our official launch was at NSW Parliament House on 27 July 2011. The NSW Attorney-General and Minister for Justice, the Honourable Greg Smith SC MP, was the host. Our launch was attended by approximately 200 guests, including the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of NSW. Salvos Legal Humanitarian, and its predecessor, Courtyard Legal, have so far advised and assisted in over 16,000 cases (as at 30 May 2016) for free for people in need, without any State or Federal Government funding. As Salvos Legal is a not-for-profit practice, no distributions of dividends are made otherwise than for the funding of the work of Salvos Legal Humanitarian. In this regard, Salvos Legal is a recognised Charitable Institution, and Salvos Legal Humanitarian is a recognised Public Benevolent Institution (PBI) which holds Deductible Gift Recipient (DGR) status.
