Brisbane and Sydney Lawyers Rostron Carlyle have been advising many of the country’s leading corporations, banks, statutory bodies and individuals since 2001


Formed in 2001, Rostron Carlyle has grown into one of Brisbane’s leading firms, now led by 6 partners and employing more than 40 professional staff who specialise in a number of key practice areas.  Our experienced and committed professionals are focused on providing clients with result-orientated outcomes and commercially minded options to a range of legal issues.

Continuing our growth and commitment to the New South Wales market, Rostron Carlyle incorporated the well regarded and long standing law firm of Maunder & Jeffrey into its national presence.  The partners and staff of Maunder & Jeffrey bring with them a wealth of experience, understanding and know how to the Rostron Carlyle team in Sydney and are recognised as experts in the fields of corporate, commercial, property and succession & estates law.

What sets Rostron Carlyle apart is our professionals’ personal skills.  Technical excellence in the law is commonplace, the ability for lawyers to relate and empathise with clients, regardless of the nature of their legal issue, is rarer.  Rostron Carlyle’s philosophy and values focus on innovation, commitment and honesty, combined with our ‘relaxed professionalism’.  This approach appeals to our clients and staff alike, where we strive to be more than just lawyers, but people upon whom you can rely.  This attitude has been the cornerstone of our growth and success, and why we take great pride in the long term relationships we build together with clients.
