Shire Legal was formed in 2003 by principal, Melissa Bush, who identified a definite need for clients to be offered a more innovative approach to obtaining legal services. Melissa sought to take advantage of the breadth of knowledge and experience that she gained working in multinational CBD firms, by focusing on a small firm attitude but with a big firm approach. Since then, Melissa has built Shire Legal into a firm with a genuine client focus. Our team work hard to provide unparalleled client service by building long-lasting relationships with clients and referral partners.
Our clients include businesses both large and small, industry associations, strata managers, families, individuals, landlords and property developers. In addition to its Miranda office, Shire Legal also has the ability to meet in the CBD with clients whose businesses and workplaces are in the city, and for those clients with court matters. Shire Legal's lawyers are members of various professional organisations, such as:
- Miranda & Districts Chamber of Commerce
- Realise Business (formerly the Business Enterprise Centre)
- Law Society of New South Wales
- Australiasian Legal Practice Management Association
- Legal Marketing Association
Shire Legal's community mindedness has seen its sponsorship of and support for the following groups and organisations:

- Salvation Army's Community Wills Assistance Days
- Red Cross Wills Days

Should a business owner know how to take proactive steps to understand the law?
Knowledge is power. And we believe that if business owners are armed with more knowledge about essential business laws, then legal issues (which can be costly in terms of time, money and energy) may be avoided.
To help its clients, Shire Legal has developed a new online portal - Business Know How - to equip business owners with knowledge and documentation - for minimal outlay.
