Blackwattle Legal is pleased to announce that it has received global recognition as a leading Australian law firm, having been ranked in The Legal 500 Asia Pacific: Australia, 2022 for its two practice areas: Restructuring and Insolvency and Dispute Resolution: Litigation.

The Legal 500, which is arguably the most prestigious and respected global legal directory, ranks firms based on several factors including client feedback, peer feedback and complexity of matters handled.

We express our sincere thanks to our esteemed clients who participated in Legal 500’s research process. We are truly humbled and honoured by the testimonials received. Without each of our clients who placed their trust in our ability to deliver first class legal advice, service and results, this achievement would not have been possible.
