Who We Are

Chalk & Behrendt is a respected specialist practice based in Sydney. We focus on serving Indigenous organisations and businesses, governments, and other private clients in the areas of public law, commercial and governance matters and land acquisition and development.

We act for clients across Australia, including in proceedings in the various State supreme courts, the Federal Court and the High Court of Australia.

Our reputation is built on the results we achieve for our clients. We measure our skill and commitment by their success. In every matter we keep their long-term interests squarely in view.

The firm's standing in native title and administrative law has been acknowledged over many years in peer refereed guides such as Chambers, Legal Profiles, Doyles and Who's Who Legal.

Chalk & Behrendt works in alliance with leading commercial law firm Gilbert + Tobin. Through this alliance, the two firms utilise shared resources and expertise to make significant contributions to our clients, especially in advancing their economic interests.

Previously practising as Chalk & Fitzgerald, we launched under our new name on 1 January 2017. We are proudly Supply Nation certified as an Indigenous Business.
