About BTLawyers

BTLawyers is a fast growing Brisbane law firm of bold, balanced and brilliant thinkers.

Our clients tell us that they know we’re always in their corner. And we are – we genuinely always have their best interests at heart, because we’re passionate about what we do. We like to think adventurously but act carefully, always striving to get our clients the best outcome possible while delivering real value for money.

To us, being a leader is more than just a buzzword. In 2016, we were proud to be named by Doyles Guide as one of only two Tier 1 Workers Compensation (defendant) Law Firms in Queensland.

BTLawyers was started by Bruce Thomas in 2002. Having worked in big law firms, Bruce knew there was an opportunity to deliver a different, more personal experience for his clients – an experience based on trust, creative thinking, and a fixed fee pricing model to give clients peace of mind when it comes to their legal spend. So he left the big firms and started out on his own, specialising in insurance and workers’ compensation law.

15 years on, our insurance and workers compensation business has been expanded to encompass workplace and family law, business disputes, and debt recovery. Our reach now goes well beyond Queensland to clients based in all states of Australia, with some of the most complex legal issues.

We act for many of Australia’s leading businesses in industry groups including retail, transport and logistics, manufacturing, property, agriculture, tourism, health and aged care, financial services and insurance.
