SSMITH & ASSOCIATES are construction and commercial law experts in advocacy. Be it resolution of disputes with state significance (we have had carriage of resolving claims on the Commonwealth Games Village), civil or residential dispute resolution; our building law expert Mr  Stephen Smith Chartered Building Professional AIB is a leader in his field.

Did you know that one of our principals was the key legal adviser on the development of Part 4 Reforms of the Environmental Planning and Assessment Act? We have also been engaged by state governments and federal bodies to advise on the establishment of building regulation.
