In addition Hillhouse Burrough McKeown Solicitors Brisbane provide a full range of services to individuals in the areas of Conveyancing, Family Law, making and contesting Wills, Estate Planning, Employment Law, Litigation, Motels, Caravan Parks & Hotels. See Our Services for the full list and details.

Rather than merely providing an interpretation of the Law and leaving you to your own devices we provide legal advice while being aware of your commercial objectives.


We are close to the Brisbane Law Courts, easy to find and easy to get to by car or public transport. This suits our clients, staff and solicitors. Brisbane City Hall car park is next to our building and the Brisbane Transport Centre is a short walk down Adelaide Street. We are easy to find adjacent to Brisbane City Hall and Brisbane City Square.

The firm was formed in 1991 by the merger of two established firms Hillhouse Burrough & Whitton with Shaw McKeown Bowers Solicitors. Brisbane was the home of both firms and the partners of both firms were solicitors who have always practised law in Brisbane. Both these firms had a similar culture focusing on small to medium business and the needs of individuals and their families.

How we do business

  • Insight – Insight, experience and up‑to‑the‑minute legal skills are offered to all clients.
  • Keeping you informed – Information is vital. We provide practical advice as to how the law affects a business in its daily operations.
  • To budget – Using the client’s budget framework we provide practical solutions.
  • Three dimensional viewing – We view issues from every angle.
  • Personal touch – We take a real and active interest in our clients and their businesses.
  • Skills and experience – Skills plus experience equals = valuable legal solutions.
  • Ethics are paramount – For us, ethical practice is the first priority.


We seek balance in our working lives. While making sure our client’s needs are met we also maintain a good work/life balance allowing plenty of time for community, family, friends and recreation. This distinguishes us from most other firms of solicitors.

Brisbane is our base and while we provide services to clients from all over Australia (particularly in our Motels, Caravan Parks & Hotels work) we do not seek to expand our geographic scope. At Hillhouse Burrough McKeown Solicitors Brisbane we know a calm, focused approach is the best way for us and our clients.
