McCabes is a leading Australian law firm with a reputation for delivering high quality service.

Led by Managing Principal, Andrew Lacey, McCabes was founded in 1991 by Terry McCabe with a small office of five employees. McCabes has since grown to over 100 staff with teams of specialists that provide quality and timely advice across a broad range of industries.

McCabes is a principal-driven firm with the flexibility to act quickly, the resources to deliver quality, and the efficiency to provide services at competitive rates.

The feedback we receive indicates we are easy to work with because of our collaborative approach and the accessibility of our principals. Balanced with a strong internal emphasis on culture and values, McCabes has the capability to combine innovation with commercial savviness to bring rewarding outcomes to all our clients.

Celebrating over 25 years, McCabes has transformed from a small, trusted legal team, into an outstanding young firm of over 65 lawyers who are passionate about delivering quality work.


Our clients operate across every industry. They include multi-national corporations in the public and private sectors, insurers, government departments, SME’s, family owned enterprises and entrepreneurs.

We have a strong commitment to building long-term relationships and make it our priority to learn about our clients’ businesses intimately. It is our attention to detail that gives us the ability to provide commercially focused and trusted legal advice.
