Our Melbourne office traces its history to 1853 when the original partnership was formed in Melbourne. 

We have been part of the Melbourne commercial community ever since. We incorporated and floated BHP in 1885 and are proud to say that we act for the company, now known as BHP Billiton, today.

As one of the largest offices in the Herbert Smith Freehills network, we provide a full-service legal offering to our clients across all major sectors.

The Melbourne office is a leader in workplace diversity and inclusion, with networks and programmes for LGBTI inclusion, women in business, helping parents return to work and the promotion of cultural diversity.

We have a long history of pro bono support for worthy organisations and encourage staff members to volunteer in the community.
