Why work with us

At the heart of what we do is a belief that the law should serve everyone.


At Maurice Blackburn, we fight for outcomes that make a genuine difference to peoples' lives. Maurice McCrae Blackburn founded our firm in Melbourne in 1919. Almost 100 years later, our founder's belief that the law should serve everyone, not just those who can afford it, remains at the heart of who we are and what we do.

We believe that legal action, which supports social justice, contributes to a better society. Our Social Justice Practice challenges the excesses of government and business, and champions the rights of those who are disadvantaged. We have led litigation in the public interest on behalf of refugees, workers who have been underpaid, and people who have been unfairly targeted by national security legislation.

We recognise that there are individuals and organisations in our community who cannot afford the services of a lawyer. That's why, in appropriate cases, Maurice Blackburn will provide legal services to such organisations and individuals on a pro bono or reduced charge basis. We also work with many barristers on a similar basis.

We fight for fair.
