In early 2019, Russell Kennedy (Melbourne) and Aitken Lawyers (Sydney) merged to create a 270- strong practice.

This merger brings together two firms with complementary capabilities across practice areas including aged care and retirement living, corporate and commercial, dispute resolution, property and development, government, workplace relations and employment, estate planning, family law, rural services and renewable energy.

The two firms have long histories, both dating back more than 120 years. Russell Kennedy’s origins date back to 1857, while holding the Russell Kennedy name since 1926. Andrew Aitken is a 5th generation lawyer and firms holding the Aitken name date back more than 120 years. Our lawyers help shape the way in which the industries appear today and are leaders in their fields with several accredited specialists.
