At Fox & Staniland we value efficiency, experience, and attention to detail. We aim to provide our clients with the best possible legal services.
We are committed to:
Fox & Staniland has its origins in the old city firm of Sillar & Maddison which was established many years ago. The founders were Ralph Sillar who lived in Pymble, and John Maddison who subsequently became the State Minister for Justice and Attorney General, and who lived at Wahroonga. David Fox and Richard Staniland became partners in Sillar & Maddison.
Shortly thereafter they opened a branch office of that firm at Gordon. In 1972, following the retirement of Ralph Sillar and John Maddison, the partnership was dissolved and David Fox and Richard Staniland continued the practice at Gordon under the new name of Fox & Staniland. The firm has grown since and is one of the largest legal firms in the Ku-ring-gai area.
Notwithstanding this growth we have maintained our emphasis on giving personal service to all our clients. In 2001 the firm moved from its original premises in the Gordon shopping centre to an office building located in Pymble’s Bridge Street business precinct.
In October 2014 Fox & Staniland lawyers became a company "Fox & Staniland Pty Limited" and expanded its premises to accommodate its growth.
Reminder that close attention to detail is extremely important when creating your employment contracts. If you intend to engage someone as an independent contractor rather than as an employee then make sure the contract is clear! Read more
