Blackwell Short Lawyers commenced in July 2006 by the founding principals seeking to provide a narrow number of areas of practice for a regional law firm. Those four initial areas of law continue to this day with the addition of commercial litigation upon the Consultant, John Carpenter joining the firm.

Outside of our core areas of practice we regularly refer clients to other practitioners practicing in the areas to meet our clients’ specific needs.
