About Us

Modern, approachable and solution-driven

We believe in partnering with our clients so that we can understand their needs, and work together to provide a complete solution.

We do this by being approachable, and listening to our clients in order to provide timely, straightforward and personalised advice.

Mission Statement

We provide high quality legal services with integrity, professionalism and respect for our clients and the community.  In pursuit to this mission, we will hold to these values, striving to become one of the most sought-after providers of legal services.

Building a culture of belonging empowers people to do their best work. Hugill & Ip is an environment where individuals with different views, backgrounds and experiences can come together and support one another.

We are committed to operating a business that is environmentally sustainable and we persistently attempt to reduce any negative impacts on the environment. We integrate a practical sustainability policy that covers the use of office supplies, how we print and recycle.


We endeavour to exceed the expectations of our clients in all aspects of their legal representation.


We promote a collegial atmosphere in which all individuals are encouraged to learn, improve and excel and to become leaders in the legal, business and civic communities.


We manage our practice to provide the financial strength and growth necessary to attract and keep the highest quality lawyers and staff.


We work daily to enhance the supportive attitude, common bond and collective sense of humour — the special working atmosphere — which is a hallmark of our firm.

Our Journey

Our achievements are a reflection of our team.

We founded Hugill & Ip to apply modern thinking to client service, utilising up-to-date technology in a contemporary office environment. We believe that this, together with a commitment to investment in our staff, allows us to provide better solutions for our clients.

Diversity & Inclusion

We are committed to promoting diversity and inclusion in the workplace and in the community.

We believe in recognising and promoting talent and opportunities for every member of our firm, regardless of gender, race, family status, disability, sexual orientation, identity, age, body shape or size, religion or beliefs.

Inclusion makes all differences thrive. We wholeheartedly encourage all forms of diversity as they give everyone a strong additional value. Diverse teams make better decisions, and in turn build a better society for everyone: the clients we serve, and the employees and culture of our firm.

Equity takes Diversity & Inclusion one notch up. It encourages fair treatment and access to opportunities, while striving to eradicate the institutional and unconscious hurdles which reduce the potential of diverse members.

Social Responsibility

We believe that social responsibility is a necessary ethical stand, in which individuals are accountable for fulfilling their civic duty.

The actions of an individual must benefit the whole of society. In this way, there must be a balance between economic growth and the welfare of society and the environment.

We look to the future and believe that in taking corporate social and environmental responsibility, we will develop a better working environment for our staff and better services for our clients.

Social responsibility is a strong driver of our efforts and a huge contributing factor to our continuing success. We have been periodically involved in supporting causes we feel strongly about and strive to help achieve a fairer and more livable society, now and for future generations to come.
