About Us

Established in October 1997, Steinepreis Paganin is an independent law firm offering clients specialised and comprehensive advice on a range of equity capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, corporate and commercial, energy and resources and financial services matters. We seek to understand our clients’ objectives and deliver our service in an innovative, professional and constructive manner. We believe service, quality and value for money are paramount. Our highly qualified staff are focused on understanding the needs of our clients and working with them to achieve their corporate and commercial objectives.

How Do We Work

With over 30 lawyers and graduates, our corporate team is comparable, if not larger than, many large corporate practice law firms across Australia. With seven Partners working collaboratively within our office we have the flexibility, experience and capacity to service our clients' needs.

We pride ourselves on being able to distinguish the services we provide from other law firms. We deliver quality work in a timely and cost effective way.  Importantly, we have a focused commercial approach to matters and maintain open communication with our clients.

Our strong corporate reputation, coupled with relationships with the key regulators within the corporate and commercial community, enables us to achieve our clients’ commercial objectives through practical, goal orientated, legal advice. 

Our Clients

The majority of our clients are public listed companies. However, we also act for a wide range of other clients from unlisted companies through to small businesses and high net worth individuals.

A significant proportion of our work comes from three sources:

  • existing clients who, having utilised our services, continue the relationship for future matters;
  • referrals from existing clients, other professional service providers and industry contacts; and
  • new enquiries from public companies or privately owned businesses.

We have a specialty in acting for small to mid-cap ASX listed companies, with particular interests in mining, technology and pharmaceutical to name a few. Regardless of your industry, we have the knowledge and know-how to help you with any corporate or commercial transaction.

Since 2015, Steinepreis Paganin has been a Foundation Member of the Singapore Chamber of Commerce (Western Australia).                                  

Having been involved in various cross-border transactions between Australia and Singapore, Steinepreis Paganin values its relationship with the Chamber and Roger Steinepreis and Toby Hicks regularly visit Singapore and provide seminars to Singaporean business groups on doing business in Western Australia.

We Provide a Full Service

Even though we specialise in the areas of equity capital markets, mergers and acquisitions, corporate and commercial, energy and resources and financial services law, we maintain affiliations with a number of other specialist law firms and advisers, both within Australia and overseas, who can assist us in providing a full service to you.

These specialist law firms and advisers practise in a wide range of areas, including property, taxation, employment law and commercial litigation.

In addition, we are more than happy to work in conjunction with other law firms and existing advisers.
