Our Services

____

At QRA Lawyers, we live and breathe our distinct areas of focus. We have assembled a small but dedicated team of experts, placing our firm in a position to secure the results you desire.

The strength of our experience enables us to provide legal services underpinned by a thorough understanding of the commercial perspective. We are adept at identifying risks and working with clients to find the most effective ways around them.

Although we have extensive experience across our key practice areas, our focus is specifically on corporate and commercial law, and insolvency and commercial litigation. If we feel a matter falls outside this core expertise, we will provide a referral to a trusted specialist within our network.
