Professional services list (QLD)

A directory of solicitors and other legal professionals who specialise in the building and construction sector.

Professional services list (QLD)

A directory of solicitors and other legal professionals who specialise in the building and construction sector.

The HIA is often asked by members and consumers to recommend a solicitor who practises in the area of building and construction and related areas. Unfortunately, the HIA cannot do this as it is not in a position to warrant the skills of a particular legal firm or lawyer. However, what the HIA can do is  set out a list of solicitors or other legal professionals who are sufficiently interested in the area of building and construction to become a member of the HIA. 

In this article

  • List of professional services providers 

List of professional services providers

As the choice of solicitor or professional service provider is a very important one, we strongly recommend that you not only use this list as a guide, but that you contact some or all of the listed solicitors and discuss those issues of importance to you. Many of these solicitors will offer you an initial free consultation.
