About Us


Fortunately, not all lawyers are the same, some just stand out for the right reasons….

Why is Dundas Lawyers different?

Dundas Lawyers was established by business people just like you.  We are commercially focused and pride ourselves on being technically astute in solving clients’ legal problems.  Whether it’s something simple like our Client Guide to Reducing Legal Costs, our Time Billing Policy or our commitment to our Quality Management System (QMS)  for client satisfaction, you can be sure that your experience with Dundas Lawyers will be different.

Why call the Firm Dundas Lawyers?

The Dundas’ are one of the oldest and most significant clans of Scotland, usually thought of for their contribution to the legal profession.  It has been said that “any Prime Minister can raise a man to the House of Lords, but it takes seven centuries of Scottish history to make a Dundas of Dundas” – source unknown.

Malcolm Burrows, Legal Practice Director and Founder of Dundas Lawyers is a direct descendant of several “Dundas of Dundas“.  His ancestry can be traced to Sir George Dundas, 19th of Dundas and Sir James Dundas, of Dundas.  His other notable legal forefathers being John Dundas born 1711 (Procreator to the Church of Scotland – meaning principal legal advisor), John Dundas born 1769, Writer to the Signet (what they called Solicitors at that time) and James Dundas an Advocate at the Scottish Bar.  With this distinguished heraldry as a foundation, Dundas Lawyers aims to combine the values espoused by the Dundas legal dynasty with commercial approach to the practice of the law in the new millennium.

The need for yet another law firm

Having spent the majority of his working life starting and managing technology businesses before being called to the law, our Practice Principal has since worked in law firms ranging from top and mid-tier, to boutique and large suburban.  To say that he was disappointed with the customer service is an understatement.  There was either a disregard for excellence or an over engineering and unrealistic non-commercial approach.  Dundas Lawyers was formed to address these issues by providing the level of service that the situation requires.   Each client and each matter is different, therefore so is each solution.

Commitment to excellence and innovation

Whether it’s looking at a client’s legal problem from a different perspective, or using skills from other industries in the practice of law, you can guarantee that your experience with Dundas Lawyers will be different.

The Firm is committed to the implementation of Quality Assurance through ISO 9001 Standard and LAW 9000 accreditation through the New South Wales College of Law.  The firm also participates in Lexon Insurance’s Enhanced Management Review program (EMR).
