Catherine Higgins from Lawbase

I’m a passionate, energetic Sydney-based lawyer who works with small and start-up business owners. I’m genuinely inspired by their unique journeys, and importantly, I love helping them solve their business needs. 

I’ve always been fascinated by commercial legislation, so I started my career as a paralegal – and later became a managing solicitor - in a boutique commercial law firm while completing a double degree in Bachelor of Business (Management) and Bachelor of Laws at the University of Western Sydney.

I graduated in 2009, and was admitted as a solicitor that same year. In 2012, I started my own boutique commercial law firm, and in 2016, I graduated from the University of New South Wales with a Masters of Law, specialising in corporate and commercial law. 

Although I’ve appeared on behalf of my clients in the Local, District and Supreme Courts of New South Wales as well as the Federal and High Courts of Australia - and won multi-million dollar cases against top-tier firms – I’m professionally rewarded by delivering smart legal solutions for small business.
