Our firm started life in 1965 as NJ Papallo & Co, founded by Nicholas Papallo. Renamed NJ Papallo Lawyers in 2006, and in 2016, Nicholas’s youngest son, David Papallo, took over the reins of the practice.

David is passionate about building on his father’s legacy and continuing the vision and commitment of a client-focused practice, built on  a foundation of excellence, innovation and relationship.

The Sydney-based firm provides a wide range of legal services to a broad client base, from first home buyers right through to multinational companies.
