After a close collaboration of over three years on a wide variety of client matters, Mailman Law selected the highly regarded boutique Melbourne law firm of Shiff & Company to be its joint legal services provider.

Mailman Law currently shares offices with Shiff & Company and shares its technologies and its skilled legal team. This enables Mailman Law under Bevan’s experienced leadership and direction to service a far wider range of clients and to grow independently at a much faster rate than it would otherwise be able to do.

Shiff & Company is an established commercial and property practice with 16 lawyers and 10 paralegals and support staff. This collaboration provides Mailman Law and its clients with the security of being associated with a larger well-resourced law firm without compromising the Mailman flexibility and innovation and its Indigenous aims and ideals.
