Ward Keller is the Northern Territory's oldest law firm, whose origins can be traced to the practice of its founding father, Ross Mallam, in 1910. The modern iteration of the firm, Ward Keller, was founded in 1963-50 years ago this year.
We are also one of the Territory's largest legal practices. Our experienced team of four partners, 22 lawyers, three conveyancers and 20 support staff operate from four offices in Darwin, Palmerston, Casuarina and Parap. We have fly-in, fly-out operations in Nhulunbuy and Alice Springs.
The firm's Partners are highly respected in their fields of expertise, and between them have 50 years' service with Ward Keller.
As one of only six Australian member firms of Lawyers Associated Worldwide, an association of 3700 lawyers in 100 law firms in some 60 countries, we can also help our clients with interests outside Australia to get the international legal assistance they need.
We act for resource companies, infrastructure operators, pastoralists, financial institutions, the Territory Government, developers, insurance companies, national law firms, publicly listed companies, small business and individuals from the local community.
Our reputation for first-class service delivery and practical advice is based on decades of local experience, an acute understanding of the Territory and its laws, and the Partners' commitment to the firm, its staff and its clients.
