Office Description:

Our history Our Sydney office can trace its roots back to 1833, when George Robert Nichols, the son of the colony's first postmaster and the first native-born Australian to be admitted as a solicitor in New South Wales, opened his practice. As the practice expanded, it evolved into John H. Clayton and then, by 1920, it had become Clayton & Utz. Apart from losing the ampersand, it's the name we still proudly carry today. Our people Our people are committed to excellence - in everything they do. They are commercial, pragmatic, and focused on delivering an exceptional client service.
