Welcome to
Colquhoun Murphy

Colquhoun Murphy is a long established legal practice in the Nation’s Capital specialising in commercial litigation and business law.

Colquhoun Murphy Lawyers is an integrated team of professionals who are each dedicated to achieving the same goal: solving our clients’ legal problems.

We believe that effective lawyers aim to achieve the outcome that addresses the reason a client came to seek out our legal services. Whether that solution involves reviewing a contract and advising on potential areas of legal and commercial risk; reaching a negotiated resolution to a dispute; effecting the reliable and timely conveyance of an interest in property in the ACT or NSW; obtaining probate of a will and providing on-going advice to an executor; or conducting litigation in the Courts.

Our goal is to provide each client with tailored, timely, technically and superior legal services. We understand that no two sets of facts are the same and we never assume that the different clients have same goals. We listen carefully to the facts that have led to our client’s problem as well as the outcome that the client wishes to achieve. Our goal is to present our clients with a range of solutions to each client’s individual circumstances.

Unlike many Canberra-based law firms, Colquhoun Murphy Lawyers does not act for government. We are not prevented by a conflict of interest from acting on behalf of a client in their dealings with government.

We can assist you by reviewing senior employment contracts with government; advising on the government procurement process – including providing advice on tendering and associated probity issues; advising on the APS Code of Conduct; providing advice to recipients of government grants and acting for parties in dispute with the government.

Colquhoun Murphy Lawyers are pleased to be able to offer our clients the benefit of different members of our team being able to converse fluently and/or at an advanced level in the following languages: Mandarin; French; Spanish; Hindi, Punjabi and Bahasa. We are also able to offer reading and writing skills to a professional level in most of these languages.
