History of CBL Business Lawyers

The founder and managing director of CBL Business Lawyers is Nicholas Corr.  CBL was established on 1 July 2011 under the name Corr Business Lawyers.  However, the firm is not associated with the firm Corrs Chambers Westgarth Lawyers.  As a part of a rebranding exercise the name of the firm was changed in May 2013 from Corr Business Lawyers to CBL Business Lawyers.

The Corr family has a long and reputable history and a widely respected name within the legal industry. The firm now known as Corrs Chambers Westgarth was formed in 1991 as a result of the amalgamation of three established law firms. One of these law firms was Corrs Australian Solicitors. Corrs Australian solicitors, which had previously been known for many years as “Corr and Corr”, traces its origins to 1841. The founding partners of “Corr and Corr” were Nicholas Corr’s great grandfather and great grand uncle. Nicholas Corr’s grandfather, Vernon Corr, and his grand uncle, Alan Corr, were the next generation of partners in the firm.


CBL is a modern law firm at the forefront of change in the legal industry. The firm is not a traditional legal practice. We embrace technology to provide innovative and practical legal solutions to clients in a manner that the modern business world justifiably expects that legal services ought to be provided.

The inception of CBL resulted from increasing frustration with the inefficiencies that can be caused by the very models and principles on which some law firms historically base their practices. The CBL Business Model was established to offer businesses a different type of legal service.
