Showcase SA spoke to Cowell Clarke chief executive officer Rob Comazzetto to find out more about Cowell Clarke.

Q: What does Cowell Clarke do?

Cowell Clarke are corporate and commercial law specialists.  Our firm comprises of around 100 people providing legal services, commercial advice and support to clients in all industries and sectors of business across Australia and internationally. 

Our key points of difference are that we focus on delivering commercial solutions for our clients through the expertise of our legal team and investing in the use of innovative technology.

We have genuine experience and know what it is like to start up, build and maintain a successful business. Our firm was founded by Brett Cowell and Jon Clarke over 30 years ago when they sought to disrupt the standard offering of a commercial law firm by providing a boutique service with a global perspective.

We have established, long-standing client relationships and key international relationships through a network of integrated offices and associated firms.

Q: How long have you been in operation?

We’ve been in operation for 30 years.

Q: How have you managed your business through COVID-19?

Cowell Clarke has remained fully operational during the COVID-19 pandemic. Our agility and use of technology meant that we were quickly able to observe Government protocols and have some staff on premises and others working from home.

All of our staff were able to work very effectively and we trust that our clients have not experienced any reduction in the level of service delivered during this time. As always, the safety of our clients and staff is our top priority.

To this end we have ensured appropriate social distancing and hygiene procedures are in place throughout our office including reception areas and meeting rooms.  We ask our clients and staff that if they feel unwell that they refrain from attending our offices. In this event, we can arrange meetings via telephone or video conferencing.

COVID-19 has changed the way we live and work and brought multiple challenges to businesses and commercial entities. As a result, there have been numerous amendments to State and Commonwealth legislation with far reaching consequences.

While many of these have been related to employment and property, they have also had an impact on corporate, commercial and taxation matters.  Our expertise across corporate and commercial law has allowed us to provide guidance and offer solutions to a range of unforeseen issues that have affected our clients.

Q: Where can we find Cowell Clarke?

Cowell Clarke has a head office in Adelaide and an office in Sydney. You can find us at Level 9, 63 Pirie Street, Adelaide SA 5000 and online at
