Our Services

Roberts & Kane provides specialist legal services to individuals in a range of practice areas. Our team appreciates that sometimes, things happen. Without purpose or intention. And when they do, individuals need a legal partner that they can rely on to to ensure their rights are fully protected and they are kept informed of their choices. 


Buying or selling your home may be one of the most important and stressful legal transactions you make. The Roberts & Kane team works to ensure your interests are protected (and your stress is minimised) by providing sound conveyancing services for the transaction duration.


Roberts & Kane’s Wills & Estates service is practical, professional and personal. The firm has a strong appreciation of the importance of preserving family relationships. We make every attempt to resolve the dispute without the need to issue formal legal proceedings. Most Will disputes, in our experience can be settled at or before mediation, minimising unnecessary costs and pressure on family relationships.

 We have earned our reputation as a leading firm in this area and act to ensure you are afforded natural justice and your rights and legitimate expectations to earn a living are not infringed. As specialists in representing nurses and midwives that are the subject of a notification to AHPRA, Roberts & Kane has been providing representation before QCAT in disciplinary hearings for over 30 years


For every individual and in every industry, effective management of property assets (and liabilities) can be crucial to success. Our team applies its in-depth industry knowledge to every transaction, ensuring commercial objectives are realised. We assist individuals and businesses of all sizes in buying and selling businesses, commercial leasing, debt recovery and most commercial transactions.

Roberts & Kane has a long history of acting in Industrial and Employment matters and the firm has a proven and proud association with a number of industrial unions. We assist individuals with matters associated with workplace discipline, dismissals, discrimination and sexual harassment. Our experience means that you can rely on us to ensure your rights are protected and you are fully informed, empowering you to make the best choices for your circumstances.


If you are called to give evidence at coronial inquests or coronial investigations, you need experienced advice on your side, to ensure that your interests are fully protected. Roberts & Kane will provide all the support you need to be assured you have a full understanding of the laws of privilege and the evidence favourable to you is highlighted.
