Stokes Lawyers is uniquely placed as a recognised specialist firm to assist larger and established organisations with their legal needs. Many of our largest clients started small and have grown with us over time.
Whether its ‘BigLaw’ fatigue or simply a desire to re-configure the way you engage with your legal advisors, Stokes Lawyers is interested in understanding and helping you achieve the objectives of your organisation.

Our lawyers have acted for local councils and the issues surrounding local government in Queensland.
In a Planning and Environment context, we understand the important of strategic advice at the front end of a development life-cycle to minimise risk at the development assessment stage, and also to minimise litigation risks. Our lawyers have acted for a range of local governments across Queensland in defending approvals issued by the local authority and resisting appeals against refusals by Councils.
We are proud to advise that Stokes Lawyers are now listed on Local Buy as an approved Supplier for Legal Services.
Our lawyers take the time to understand the long-term imperatives of local governments, and ensure that these priorities are considered and heard in litigation. We are a proudly regional-based, locally-involved law firm with links to other regional towns and councils throughout Queensland.
Not unlike LEGO – sadly, not a client – some of the world’s largest and most successful businesses are private family businesses. Some of our larger clients have grown with us since their early days or have sought us out later on as a family business that reflects their values and provides pragmatic advice.
Many of our family-owned business clients have achieved great things as industry leaders, innovators in science and healthcare, mining and professional services. We are proud that many of these families see us as part of their business family and value our continued involvement along their upward trajectory.
We are occasionally approached by foreign companies or organisations seeking advice on existing or new operations in Logan City or Australia. We are pleased to assist and work with your inhouse and other advisors to ensure the compliant and effective entry into our local business community.
