The practice of Cantle Carmichael Lawyers was established in 2001 by Beverley Cantle and Tony Carmichael in the CBD of Newcastle. Since its commencement, the firm has developed a sound reputation in commercial and insurance law, servicing clients in the areas of manufacturing and engineering, construction, mining, infrastructure, property development, health and disability services, hospitality, consulting and other personal services. Today, the firm’s clients include ASX200 companies, large privately owned companies, national NGOs, start-ups and other private entities and individuals.


By law, our options in charging for our services are limited. We are otherwise flexible about our fee structures. Most clients are accustomed to hourly rates (except where fixed fees are mandated), but we also offer daily and half day fees and, in certain circumstances, fixed fee and retainer arrangements. We also offer “insourcing” services, where we deliver services in our clients’ offices and interact with their teams.



Satisfying Essential Expectations

Any law firm will promise to deliver accurate, practical, timely and cost effective legal services, or they should. We understand that is an essential expectation.

Big Firm Experience

Our team comprises lawyers who have developed their skills and experience in national law firms.

Collaborative and Connected

Our team is small. We collaborate with our clients to ensure our work is needs responsive, innovative and truly adds value. Clients are always connected to the lawyers actually performing the work.
