Blackwall Legal was established in 2015. Initially operating out of London only, Managing Partner Chris Pearce returned to Australia and established the Perth office in October of that year.
Blackwall Legal now operates primarily out of Australia. The name refers to a network of firms which are members of the Blackwall Legal Swiss Verien. This site is owned and hosted by Blackwall Legal LLP, our Australian member firm.
We practice law in Australia through Blackwall Legal LLP ABN 53 608 771 731, a limited liability partnership incorporated in England but doing business solely in Australia. The legal profession in Australia is regulated under various state and territory laws. Our primary presence is in Perth, Western Australia, where our lawyers are regulated by the Legal Practice Board of WA. However, because of mutual recognition laws, our lawyers are generally able to practice across Australia on matters affecting other states.
Although the majority of Blackwall Legal’s work is conducted in Australia, in the UK, we operate through our affiliate Castle Advisory Limited, an entity incorporated in England. The English legal profession is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. Castle Advisory does not conduct reserved activities within the meaning of the Legal Services Act 2007 (UK) but can provide assistance with legal unreserved activities on request.
