Why Work Here

THE OPENING STATEMENT

At BlackBay, we believe our strength lies in our people. Our rapid growth since our founding in 2022 is a testament to the talent and dedication of our team. 

The culture that we have created allows the right individuals to thrive and progress faster than anywhere else. Our Associates succesfully run full hearings before many of their peers at other firms would be allowed to join a client meeting.

 

We are a firm for ambitious people.

- Victoria-Jane Otavski, Managing Partner at BlackBay Lawyers
