Andrew Davies named as Perth’s leading family lawyer in 2021 Doyle’s Guide

16 December 2020

Andrew Davies, partner of O’Sullivan Davies Lawyers has again been listed as Perth’s only Leading Family and Divorce Lawyer in the 2021 Doyle’s National Guide rankings released today.

There are three classifications of awards on the Doyle’s Guide starting with Preeminent, Leading, and Recommended. Besides Andrew Davies, no other Western Australian lawyer was listed in the top two classifications.

The Doyle’s Guide is a national publication that ranks leading lawyers and law firms  by undertaking independent research based on reviews by clients, peers and relevant industry bodies – it’s the Oscars of the legal sector.

Mr Davies says that he leads by example and is thrilled to receive recognition for excellence.

“Our work ethic is led by excellence, not just in what I do, but all of our lawyers and the firm’s uncompromising commitment to work with families to prevent or resolve disputes”, Mr Davies says.

Two weeks ago, six O’Sullivan Davies lawyers, Trevor O’Sullivan, Andrew Davies, James Claringbold, Nicola Watts, Nicola Jansen and Ryan van der Merwe, were individually named across five rankings for excellence in Family Law in WA with individual honours in the areas of High Value/Complex Matters, Parenting Matters and Mediation in the Doyle’s Guide.


Established in 2000 and celebrating 20 years of service this year, O’Sullivan Davies Lawyers is a specialist family law practice with a skilled team of 32 staff based in Perth.
