A lot has changed since 1873, but our foundations remain the same

Founded in 1873, Williams Winter is a Melbourne institution. To put it simply, we have a passion for practising law.

We take the time to get to know our clients' concerns. This allows us to use our skills and insight to guide businesses and individuals through unfamiliar situations. We provide our clients with timely and practical legal advice, with a focus on delivering the best available outcome.

Relationships matter

Our clients are at the centre of what we do. Our team engages and collaborates with our clients to solve problems, build relationships and get results.

We're exceptional at what we do

We are experts in our given fields and display that expertise without the egos that often come with it. We're here to take the complexity out of the process for you.

We're proactive partners

We speak our clients language by understanding their needs and working together side by side to predict and advise rather than just react.
