Our History

James Conomos Lawyers was established by James Conomos in July 1992 as a boutique legal firm offering specialist expertise in commercial litigation and insolvency. The firm came into being because James is passionate about achieving positive outcomes for clients and providing real value for money.

Since then, James has pursued his desire to help younger lawyers learn the art of law and problem solving. Through his mentoring, James has shaped a team of capable and ambitious lawyers who will adeptly solve your legal problems within a realistic time frame.

Based in modern offices in the heart of Brisbane’s central business hub, our team has now grown to a total of 14 staff. Expertly guided by Director James Conomos, you can rely on us to tackle any commercial issue you throw our way.
