About Gladwin Legal

As a leading retail lawyer, it’s important to us that your business is fully legally protected every step of the way and that it can grow profitably and sustainably without legal issues getting in the way. It’s important to us that we help you make deals, not break them.  We move fast and don’t ‘over-lawyer’ anything.  We are commercially savvy and pride ourselves on practical, useful advice to make things happen.

We believe in different. We love what we do and operate far more dynamically than the old school commercial law firms. Our specialist retail expertise means we’re not reinventing the wheel with every new challenge. Our flat fee and subscription structures mean tailored, expert advice is easily obtainable to every retailer, large or small. Call now for a free consultation and ask us to quote – you might be pleasantly surprised!

Our team of retail lawyers and commercial solicitors is friendly, solution-oriented and approachable, with a very careful eye for detail. We believe in pragmatic solutions that don’t cost the earth. We see ourselves as a business enabler to help you achieve your goals to grow. That’s why we won the NORA Legal Team of the Year in 2018.

Searching for a trusted commercial law firm in Australia? Look no further. We provide a fresh approach to retail law by leveraging time-saving digital tools. We are always accessible no matter what part of Australia you are in – we can meet in your office, our office, or we can simply conference call online.

Why We Are Award Winning Commercial Lawyers

David Barbeler★★★★★
Rosalyn and Megan helped me get my online business ready to launch 3 years ago and I'm so very grateful that I reached out to them.
Three years on we're still going strong and just had both legal documents updated by Rosalyn & Megan. Both times the whole process was super transparent, effortless (on my end), and very professional.
Tonya Davidson★★★★★
