Prolegis Lawyers ranked Band 1 by Chambers
January 2022 | News | Anne Robinson, Jae Yang and Jon Cheung
In the 2022 awards for Australian law firms in the practice area of Charities, Prolegis Lawyers was again ranked by Chambers in the highest Band, Band 1 in the Australian Charities section alongside three much larger full-service firms.. Chambers’ research concluded that Prolegis is “highly regarded as a pre-eminent charities and NFP boutique, handling the full range of practice area mandates for clients of all kinds, including public and private bodies and individual philanthropists”, and as one interviewee concluded: "there is a sense of them partnering with us, not just providing services.”.
In the individual lawyer rankings, Prolegis showed that it is a firm that has depth in charity law with its three partners recognised with rankings. For the third year running, Prolegis Lawyers’ founding partner, Anne Robinson AM, was one of three Australian lawyers ranked in Band 1 in this practice area, while partners Jon Cheung and Jae Yang were also recognised.
Like most people working in this sector, while we are honoured by the recognition, it is not why we do what we do. We are committed to continuing to uphold the trust and confidence placed in us and making sure that we uphold the quality of work and fostering good relationships in this sector.
We also know that this is all a team effort: the best parts of the comments in the rankings are comments from clients about Prolegis Lawyers’ approach to the client relationship, and reflect the effort of our team collectively in serving the clients that we have. Relationships need much more than getting the legal answers right. Consistent with the work in the not for-profit sector, what we do is experienced by clients personally in a relational sense.
Thank you to our clients and colleagues for your support and trust.
