We are pleased to announce that two long-standing and respected Brisbane law firms, Rice Naughton and Jones McCarthy, have joined together to form Rice Naughton McCarthy, creating the largest specialised family law firm in Brisbane.

The decision to merge our two companies evolved in recognition of our shared approach to the practice of family law. We recognise the need for a compassionate, dedicated and efficient family law offering and the merged firm will combine intellectual rigour with considered, respectful advice.

We look forward to offering our clients this service, while also continuing to provide thought leadership through the delivery of seminar papers and membership of key professional committees.

All 4 of the members of our leadership team are recognised by Doyle’s Guide as key players in their field of expertise. Ten professional and six support staff complete the mix of our full-service firm, including expertise in mediation, arbitration, collaboration and litigation.

The team at Rice Naughton McCarthy will continue to provide exceptional service and help clients to crystallise the issues, clarify their thinking and reach a respectful resolution.

We look forward to working with you.
