We are effective.

We are accessible.

We are meticulous about
protecting your legal rights.

When founding partners Searle Batten and Wayne Sacks first met in Melbourne 20 years ago, not only did they share a similar journey as professionals from South Africa but they also wanted to commence their own practice after working in large law firms in both South Africa and Melbourne. Within months, Batten Sacks Lawyers opened its doors on St Kilda Road, South Melbourne.

Their mission was simple and continues today – to provide quality, practical and effective legal services that deliver the best possible outcomes. No complicated legal jargon. Just timely, precise and easy to understand explanations to enable each client to make well-informed decisions.

It is about listening to your needs.

Understanding where you are coming from.

Getting the big picture.

Working expeditiously.

Giving our best and delivering excellent outcomes in the most cost-effective ways.

Since 2003, Batten Sacks has grown to include two more partners – Trevor Rosenthal and Colin Adno – and five lawyers and consultants, providing legal advice across 10 specialist areas. We are proud to act for large multi-national corporations and are panel solicitors for the Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Ltd.

Despite our growth, our core values remain the same. No matter how small or large you are, whether an individual or a small or large enterprise or corporation, Batten Sacks is meticulous about protecting your legal rights.

You can count on our integrity, our diligence and our extensive experience to help you attain the best possible result.
