By Lawyers was proud this year to celebrate our co-founder and Editorial Director, Guy Dawson achieving 50 years as a continuously practising member of The Law Society of New South Wales. Guy was admitted on 31 May 1968.
Guy completed his articles at Robilliard & Robilliard and practised as a solicitor with Marsdens, Shailer Dawson, Pedley Dawson, Dawson & Butt and Our Lawyers before co-founding By Lawyers.
During this time Guy dedicated himself to general practice, developing a wealth of knowledge and experience across many areas of law.
Guy Dawson is well known for his collegiate and practical approach to his dealings with other lawyers, focusing on creating cost-effective and timely solutions for clients and building working relationships that are founded on trust and honesty.
Drawing on his experience and regard for the legal profession inspired Guy to create By Lawyers with the goal of making the practice of law more enjoyable and reducing the risk that small law firms face. Today, By Lawyers Legal Guides and Precedents are used by more than 10,000 subscribers across Australia, making Guy one of the most read legal authors in the country.
Guy’s years of dedication and hard work in bringing By Lawyers to firms across Australia is a significant contribution to the legal profession and the betterment of law and justice in the community. The By Lawyers team is proud to be a part of Guy’s bold vision.
