At Corney & Lind Lawyers we are called to deliver Just, Redemptive Outcomes®.

We recognise the devastating consequences human error, institutional failures, fractured relationships, discrimination and other wrongs have on the whole person. We understand the importance of life-giving community; of safe and healthy families, institutions, charities, churches, schools and businesses that shape lives and culture. Cultivating wise decision making requires space, dignity, discretion and clarity around risks and options. Each of our lawyers believe in the call on their lives to contribute to the fabric of this world through measured, timely and strategic counsel, courageous advocacy and clear documentation. This leads to Just Redemptive Outcomes®.

I have been fortunate to have had the support of Corney and Lind lawyers for over 10 years in my role as Principal/ CEO at A.B. Paterson College and now at Bayside Christian College. The team at Corney and Lind stand out above the rest because of the care, support, and encouragement they offer leaders. Not only do they provide strong guidance on all legal matters, but they seek outcomes that are truly redemptive through a caring and Christian approach to all they do.

The lawyers at Corney and Lind not only provide detailed legal advice and argument but provide advice that seeks to support the needs of our hearts in the most difficult of situations. The level of care and support provided is far beyond that of a mere contractual business relationship, and I could not recommend their services high enough.

Whether support is needed in family law, contract law, navigating compliances in immigration and employment law, I have found all aspects of their support to be of the highest standard. They have saved me countless headaches, and significant cost savings in their approach to legal matters and disputes. Most importantly for me, is that I can call at any time and can speak to someone who truly care about what we are going through at the time.

This is indeed and most truly a law firm that stands apart from the rest.

As Executive Director/Principal Research Officer of Associated Christian Schools, It is my pleasure to offer an endorsement of Corney and Lind and, in particular, Managing Director Alistair Macpherson.

Associated Christian Schools (ACS) values the partnership we have enjoyed with Corney and Lind over the last thirteen years since ACS was established. The membership of ACS comprises 49 member schools located throughout Queensland, of diverse governance, size and educational structure. Corney and Lind have been flexible and strategic in supporting our schools through difficult and challenging issues. Specifically, during COVID, Corney and Lind were able to provide our members with guidance on Policies relating to Vaccinations and Staff Employment conditions.

We have appreciated the relationship we have established with all staff at Corney and Lind, their expertise, and professional conduct. In particular, the Managing Director of Corney and Lind, Alistair Macpherson has been strategic and responsive in allocating relevant lawyers to respond to members’ issues. We look forward to a continued productive partnership with Corney and Lind.

Corney & Lind Lawyers are approachable, professional, and knowledgeable about the law as it relates to the Christian and nonprofit sector, and I regularly recommend them to Christian Management Australia members as a firm who they can trust.

In a recent practical example my local church needed expert legal advice on a difficult matter unique to the church sector.

I recommended that our pastor approach Corney & Lind Lawyers, and we quickly received a clear, straight forward response that equipped us to address the issue appropriately.

As a leading provider of information to professional service firms within Australia, we provide services to government and other large enterprises, including law firms.

It is an understatement to say that we need good lawyers.

Corney & Lind Lawyers are those lawyers – knowledgeable, straight talking, commercially astute, highly responsive and solution focused.

We have used their legal services extensively for many years, often on large, complex and time sensitive matters, and we have found that they have always been worthy of the trust that we have placed in them.

Cameron Beavis | Managing Director | GlobalX Group

I am happy to provide a testimonial for Corney and Lind Lawyers.

They have provided a valuable service to Emmanuel College on the Gold Coast for many years. I have always found their responses to our requests to be deeply thoughtful, incisive and extremely thorough.

On many occasions, they have raised matters which we would not have considered had they not raised them for us, and have protected us against what would almost certainly have been difficult territory had we not engaged their advice.

I have found that their personal approach has really assisted both me and my staff, and we count our relationship with the various members of the firm to be one of cordiality and professional friendship and respect.

Graham Leo | Former Principal | Emmanuel College
