Cooper Grace Ward is a leading Australian law firm established in 1980. With a team of more than 200, today we are the largest solely Queensland-based firm, servicing clients throughout the state.
Cooper Grace Ward is known for its positive and diverse team culture. Fostering a supportive and nurturing work environment for all team members, irrespective of background or attributes, is a cornerstone of the way we operate.
Our commitment to supporting our team is reflected in the comprehensive families and flexibility policies we have in place to assist team members to manage their work and personal lives. This includes paid parental leave, flexible working arrangements, and our breastfeeding at work policy. We are proud to have been accredited since 2009 as a Breastfeeding Friendly Workplace, recognising the need to support our team members when they return to work from maternity leave.
We have been recognised externally for our efforts towards creating an inclusive culture, including receiving the Queensland Law Society’s 2013 Equity and Diversity Award, and achieving accreditation as an Aon Hewitt Best Employer in 2013. Further, our accomplishments in terms of gender diversity have earned us Employer of Choice for Women citations by the Equal Opportunities for Women Agency (now Workplace Gender Equality Agency) every year since 2009.
