Australian Family Lawyers to open new Perth office

AF Legal Group (ASX: AFL) has announced the company's expansion to Western Australia with a new Australian Family Lawyers office in Perth to open in November.

The new office will be the group's fifth office to open this calendar year, following the openings of AFL in Canberra, Maroochydore, Caloundra and Adelaide.

"The opening of our Perth office is significant on two fronts," said AFL executive chairman Grant Dearlove (pictured).

"Firstly, we have completed our strategic objectives for 2020 as AFL now serves Australians in every major mainland capital city.

"Secondly, we have achieved what no other law firm has in Australia's legal history. We are the first and only national family law firm."

AF Legal Group hopes to attract the more than 2 million residents of Perth with its offering, pointing to a 19 per cent rise in divorce applications at the Family Court of Western Australia in 2019.

Further, the company highlights how the Family Courts in WA finalised the highest number of final orders in its history during 2019.

The announcement comes two months after the company's founder Edward Finn stepped away from the role of managing director to focus on a strategic project for generating future growth.

Outgoing MD Finn - the company's founder and largest shareholder - will now chair a market advisory board focused on further development of client acquisition engine AFL 2.0.
