Burch + Co lawyers, We can’t change the law, but we can change what it’s like to work with a lawyer.

Burch + Co are an optimistic and hardworking team committed to being useful. We strive for simplicity and certainty, not just with our legal services but also with our fee structure. We believe in establishing fees upfront, because watching the clock distracts away from things that matter. Like a genuine exchange of ideas.

We are interested in listening to your goals and ambitions and from this we are able to gain valuable insight and perspective – to help you decide what’s best for you. We are an energetic and collaborative team who rally for your challenges and celebrate your successes.

Our experience spans fields including professional services, technology, manufacturing, sports, marketing, and hospitality. We know the law but we also know business, and our strength lies in identifying how our knowledge can serve you.

We work with clients who are looking to set-up structures to support new ventures, as well as negotiating change within more established businesses. Regardless of the industry or the context our service is always the same: be it big business or start-ups we’re confident in our ability to find a course of action to suit your situation.

We think communication is the key to keeping simple things simple and making difficult things easier. We believe that our job is to look at any problems at hand, to ask questions that need to be asked, and identify what can be done to change things for you.

These services can be obscured by uncertain and vague billing practices.

If the billable hour doesn’t work for you, we won’t use it. To us, doing a great job means evaluating the task at hand and giving you confidence by committing to a fee structure that allows us to get down to business together with you.

Above all we are ambitious and hungry for change, and that change begins in our dealings with you.

What I and my clients appreciate most about working with the team at Burch & Co, is the straight talking commercial, practical and solution focused advice, which helps clients navigate through the complexity of the law in times of need. 

Burch & Co are not your typical law firm. They apply old-school knowledge and experience with new-school thinking. Always acting with our best interests in mind, forward-thinking and realistic. We're thrilled to have them in our corner as our business grows. 

John Chung, Director – Ineffable

The Burch & Co's professional and relaxed manner have made our business issues simple and easy to deal with. We greatly appreciate the support and advice that Burch & Co provide, as we know that they care and are putting our best interests first. 

Steve Joy, Owner – Sprout Coffee

Professional services is a team thing. As lawyers we believe we’ll deliver maximum value if we have a commercially connected and endlessly energetic network.

We have that network. To explore the complexities of particular legal ideas we’ve built strong relationships with experts in tax, accounting, audit, permits and licensing, public relations, sports administration, marketing and IT.

This has allowed us to build a dynamic legal practice, and further to this each of our clients brings with them their own innovative ideas that add to a network which we’re excited to keep growing.
