Move west: Perth based SRB Legal joins McCabe Curwood

Sydney/Perth, 1 July 2020: Perth based law firm SRB Legal has joined the ranks of McCabe Curwood, taking the ambitious group to five offices nationally; Sydney CBD, Chatswood, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.


“The combination of McCabe Curwood and SRB Legal allows us a strong West Australian presence. We have not been quiet about our plans to expand nationally and to be in a strong position to better service our large insurance clients,” says Managing Principal Andrew Lacey.

“Our across country presence also appeals to a large sector of our commercial clients; it is a deliberate plan to be able to offer more on the ground commercial expertise in other states.”

SRB Legal will now be known as McCabe Curwood, and the Perth office will be led by Alex Freeman, who has been a partner at the firm for 21 years.

“We are pleased to be joining with McCabe Curwood and creating a national footprint. By combining our respective practice areas, we can offer a valuable legal resource to our clients.  Importantly, there is a significant alignment of our respective firms’ cultures and aspirations for the future, which will flourish under the leadership style of McCabe Curwood.

“It is an exciting time in our firm’s history, and we are thrilled about being a part of a national, Australian owned and operated law firm,” says Freeman.

Lacey unveiled a firm-wide focus on growth and building an influential culture during an all-staff address in late 2019.

“McCabe Curwood is a firm that wants to be excellent – we want to provide excellent legal solutions to our clients and also be an excellent place to work. We listen to our employees and operate as a team – we have not lost our large boutique culture during our growth,” says Lacey.

“Supporting and developing our people, streamlining systems and resources and being engaged with our clients and business partners enable us to deliver on our high standards,” says Lacey
