Australia: Staggering growth spells office move for expanding Middletons
Last Updated: 18 September 2011

Middletons continues its success story in Western Australia, recently announcing it has moved into the Perth CBD to accommodate its growing workforce.

Talking about the move, Middletons national managing partner Nick Nichola said, "Since we entered the West Australian legal market back in 2008, our Perth office has exceeded growth expectations year on year. Our move will place us in the heart of Perth among many of our major clients and will allow us to continue to expand in response to increasing client demand."

In 2010 alone, Middletons' Perth office grew revenue significantly and the firm now employs 40 staff in Perth including seven partners, many of whom featured in Doyles Guide 2010.

Middletons has successfully grown its presence acting for clients in the mining, energy and resources sector. In addition, the Perth office has expanded its corporate advisory, workplace relations and safety, commercial litigation and property, development and construction practices, further complemented by the firm's national full service commercial offering.

The growth of Middletons in Perth is consistent with the firm's already strong brand on the east coast. Middletons had a stand out year last year, winning several industry and client awards including the prestigious BRW ANZ Private Business of the Year Award.

"What sets us apart from others in a highly competitive market is our down to earth, straight talking approach to providing legal advice. We pride ourselves on delivering the highest quality legal advice that reflects an understanding of clients' commercial goals and in language clients can understand and apply. Client feedback is that is what they really value," remarked Mr Nichola.

Mr Nichola expects growth in market share to be a key theme for Middletons in FY12 saying, "Western Australia is experiencing sustained growth in the mining, energy and resources sectors and Middletons is well placed to support this growth through relevant local expertise supported by a national network providing a full suite of legal services to clients operating in these industries."

As part of its commitment to the Perth market, Middletons is proud to be associated with the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships as a gold sponsor and exclusive legal services provider. This is the biggest sailing event to be held in Perth since the 1987 America's Cup Defence and is of international significance as an Olympic qualifying event for the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Middletons' new Perth office is located on Level 32, St Martins Tower, 44 St Georges Terrace, Perth. The firm's phone numbers remain unchanged.
