Kott Gunning was established in 1919, when Max Kott set up office at Weld Chambers in Perth. Today we’re one of Western Australia’s most established law firms – and one of its most adaptable. On 19 September the firm celebrates it’s 95th anniversary and also honour the significant contribution made by long serving partner Laurie James. Mr James started with Kott Gunning as an articled clerk in 1963 and has been a partner since 1967. He is a Senior In-house Counsel and Senior Partner in the Local Government Practice Group.
Kott Gunning’s strong focus on clients and our robust knowledge of the state’s corporate and commercial landscape are among our trademarks. The firm’s continued delivery of personalised, quality legal advice has seen Kott Gunning evolve into the progressive and steadfastly independent law firm that it is today.
“We are a client focused law firm and take our relationships seriously,” says managing partner Stephen Williams. “In a constantly changing business environment, clients continue to rely on us for informed accurate and tailored advice. 95 years on, we’re still committed to Western Australian business and the community.”
