WELCOME TO BROWNLEE LLP

As a law student, it can be easy to see all law firms as one vast conglomeration of lawyers, files and statutes. Even if you have had the opportunity to meet or know some lawyers and visit law firms, or even if you have worked in a law firm before, choosing the right law firm for you can be a daunting task.
