The Human Element

Salerno Law consists of a team of professional Lawyers, Consultants and Conveyancers retained throughout Australia. Each of Salerno Law’s lawyers work in distinct areas of the Law bringing qualifications and a wealth of experience in both business and law.

In addition to being experienced Legal Practitioners, many of the lawyers at Salerno Law have been exposed to or operated successful commercial projects and businesses both in Australia and internationally, in a variety of industries in synergy with their practice of law.​

This commercial background gives each lawyer a commercially realistic and strategic approach to each of their client’s interests. Our lawyers are armed with practical experience that enables them to effectively serve both businesses and individuals in a pragmatic, cost effective and solution-based approach.
