Dowson Turco Lawyers
Dowson Turco Lawyers (DTL) is an Out Loud and Proud™ LGBTIQ law firm and are legal advisors to the SGLBA.
The firm operates from its head office in Newtown and employs lawyers who act across the spectrum of law including criminal law, estate litigation, probate law, property law and conveyancing, family law, immigration law, commercial law, intellectual property law including trademarks and copyright, and employment and discrimination law.
DTL is known for its technical knowledge of complex law and its ability to advocate, negotiate and resolve disputes favourably for clients. DTL also has a reputation for passionate advocacy for the LGBTI community including in relation to law reform in the areas of homosexual persecution and hate crimes, marriage equality, safe schools, discrimination and vilification.
DTL has been nominated for four ACON Honour Awards and has won two awards (2015 and 2017). The firm has also received accolades from members of the NSW Parliament for its advocacy for the LGBTI community and in 2018 the firm is nominated in the Australian LGBTI Awards in 2018.
DTL believes in being more than just lawyers. The firm cares about humanity and animals, and works passionately to bring about a safer, happier world for the LGBTI community and its friends.
Dowson Turco Lawyers joined the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Business Association (SGLBA) because we saw, first-hand, the amount of work that the SGLBA board puts into developing the LGBTI’s business community.
We enjoy attending Fruits in Suits for networking and we benefit from an SGLBA location at Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras Fair Day. We also get to help other members of the Sydney business community with contract law, employment law, intellectual property law and risk management.
