MORE ABOUT US
Corrs has a strong history spanning more than 175 years. We work with our clients as true partners in their business and are consistently recognised for world class services and results. Our clients include more than half the top fifty ASX listed companies, some of the largest privately owned companies in Australia and a number of global Fortune five hundred companies.

We also work with Federal and State governments on significant matters. Helping others is a key aspect of the culture at Corrs – we achieve this through pro bono legal work, volunteering and philanthropy.

David Anthony, Senior Associate

Corrs has an open and welcoming atmosphere that is inclusive of both Corrs’ LGBTI people and LGBTI people in the broader LGBTI community. The firm launched its LGBTI@Corrs Network in 2014 across all offices nationally. The LGBTI@Corrs Network is continuing to grow and plays an important role in fostering inclusion at all levels and demonstrating Corrs’ formal commitment to LBGTI inclusion. I am proud to be part of a firm that embraces both formal and informal inclusion. For me, Corrs’ approach has made it easy to be out at work and it is great to work in an environment where diversity is not only accepted but encouraged.
