Australian Family Lawyers (AFL) is an ASX-listed family law firm with annual turnover of around $7m and 35 staff. Both AFL and Slater & Gordon (S&G) have announced that they have entered into a referral arrangement with each other.
Slater & Gordon does not practise family law. According to AFL, the referral relationship will allow AFL to support Slater & Gordon clients who may need family law advice.
Family law was a part of the S&G practice but in February 2018 it announced that it would downsize its general law business, by winding down or divesting the practice areas of Succession, Criminal, and Family Law to focus on Personal Injury, Class Actions and the Industrial/Union practice.
