About SLF Lawyers

SLF Lawyers’ history goes back to 2007, when Mark Smith started a practice with one office in Brisbane and a staff of three.

Since that time, SLF Lawyers has grown into a highly respected commercial law firm with offices in four capital cities and a team of experienced legal professionals serving clients in many industries.

Known for our commercially minded approach to matters, we take a pragmatic approach to legal issues and offer clear, concise advice to all our clients. We take the time to understand the whole picture, and our lawyers think outside the box to find solutions in even the most complex legal situations.

Alternative dispute resolution is our specialty, but when litigation is unavoidable, we pursue it rigorously, innovatively and efficiently. Our focus is providing all our clients with a clear path forward to a timely and cost-effective solution.
