What Our Clients Say

Aspen has grown since inception to be the biggest pharmaceutical generic player in Australia and have relied heavily on Chris’ guidance. When a job is given to Chris, he uses commercial acumen to advise and ensures that a prudent decision has been made. He and his firm are incredibly responsive, and their billing rates are more than reasonable. Due to Chris’ material understanding on a great variety of issues he now acts for me in my personal capacity as well as my family.

Bull, Son & Schmidt are more than lawyers, they are partners and behave accordingly. We look forward to working with Chris and his team on our next transaction.

Trevor Ziman, Director, Aspen Australia Pty Limited

I have worked with a number of law firms over the years, both large and small, but I can safely say that Bull, Son & Schmidt would rank among the best, if not the best. The excellent planning and scheduling of the work ensured that not only were all aspects covered but that the final documentation was always on programme.

This degree of professionalism was not only confined to property sales and leases but also to general legal work. The advice we received from the firm was always pragmatic and practical allowing us to make commercial decisions.

Amanda Clarke, Smart Design Studio, Innovation & Collaboration

Bull, Son & Schmidt provided great advice for planning our estates and understood exactly what we wanted to achieve.

Gavin & Christina Jones

I have worked with Richard Schmidt for many years relating to Power of Attorney and management of a sizeable estate. Before then, I had never been in a solicitor’s office. I think when you are at your lowest, and dealing with complex personal and financial matters, in an emotionally charged situation, the most important thing is to be able to trust the legal expertise and integrity of your solicitor. In Richard I found such a person.  Additionally, he is attentive, responsive, and strategic, knowing when and how best to fight for the interests of his client. And he is always cheerful and positive! I cannot recommend Bull Son & Schmidt strongly enough.
