  5. HHG Legal Group named as finalist in three categories of the Australian Law Awards for second year running – and the only WA law firm to be named.
20 Jul 2016

For the second year running, HHG Legal Group has been announced as the only exclusively WA finalist in the prestigious annual Lawyers Weekly Australian Law Awards. The Australian Law Awards are the premier legal event of the year. Recognising excellence in law, the awards celebrate the profession’s most senior ranks, rising starts and trail blazers in legal businesses that are challenging traditional models.

HHG Legal Group, a finalist for Innovator of the Year last year, has this year been named a finalist in two categories:


Boutique Firm of the Year

Boutique firms are small to medium size pioneering, innovative practices that are challenging the structure and culture of traditional firms. HHG is known for its innovative service offerings and value for money (for example, HHG Essentials online legal solutions, HHG Flexi-Fees and HHG Giving Back. HHG is also the first and only law firm in Australia to offer a money back, Client Satisfaction Guarantee. Clients are not required to pay for services they are not satisfied with. This is very new for the legal profession.


State/Regional Firm of the year

This award recognises outstanding performance by a law firm focussed not just on CBD practice, but also ‘whole of state’ practice. As a result of HHG’s commitment to all WA residents, what was a small firm only in Albany has grown to become a 50-60 employee West Perth, Mandurah, Albany and Mt Barker full service firm.


HHG’s Managing Director, Simon Creek has also been announced as a finalist for Managing Partner of the Year for the second year running. He has led the growth of HHG Legal Group from a run down, regional sole practice in 2003/4 to a thriving multi award winning WA medium sized law firm in 2016. He has focused on all aspects of growth including financial performance, business development, cultural development and branding. The firm is now a well-known WA brand.


“It is an honor to be recognized for our different client service offerings. At HHG we have a strong focus on changing client’s attitudes to the legal services industry. This is emulated in everything we do.”


                                                                        Simon Creek, Managing Director, Mediator & Special Counsel (Family Law)


Finally, this isn’t HHG’s first success for the year. The firm was also recently announced as finalists for the 2016 Australasian Law Awards for State Law Firm of the Year.

"Always fast and thorough service. Thank you"

Sitka Pil

My circumstances at the time I made contact with HHG were dire following my argument being rejected by two no win no fee firms. Following my initial meeting with HHG's employment law team I was left feeling extremely positive by the response and concern shown by HHG in regards to their support of my argument along with their preparedness to pursue an outcome on my behalf.

I accept the fact that nobody really wins in these cases (mental health/ workplace) however the end result was what would be considered most favourable and far in excess of what would have been achieved had I not sought the advice from HHG.

I have no hesitation in recommending HHG to anyone caught up in the messy circumstances I found myself in at the time.

Great advice and five-star commitment to their client!!"

Nathan Lynch

"Thank you for such great assistance with the transaction of Flying Domestics on behalf of Lorna Good. It has been such a pleasure to work with the HHG Legal Group and I look forward to working with you in the future."

Jim Goodwin

"Simon Creek and his team were at all times empathic, professional and confident.  My matter needed to be addressed within a pressing time frame, and their availability at short notice and contact after hours was much appreciated.  It caused me considerable stress, but having such a thoroughly reliable and competent team to call on helped me to feel in control. Although I hope not to need their services again in future, I would be confident in doing so!"

Dr Lana Bell

"A good outcome is what we can expect.  A great outcome is a sign of a company which does the very best for their clients. A very big thank you to Daniel Morris for showing empathy towards my small and much needed legal action.

It means so much at a very difficult time. I'm so grateful to you."
