Michael and Paul then completed their Law and Commerce degrees at the University of New South Wales before entering into partnership. They have now been in partnership for over 36 years.
Haydon Fowler Corbett Jessop was established in 1989 with the amalgamation of the three local firms, Haydon & Haydon, Peter G Fowler & Associates and Corbett and Jessop. Haydon & Haydon and Corbett and Jessop had direct proprietary links to the first firms ever established in the Sutherland Shire.

Clients of the firm have enjoyed an elite level of legal advice due to the high competency and integrity of its lawyers. There is and has been a standard of advice available which one might expect at major CBD law firms without the inconvenience of attending the city or paying city fees. The fact that four of our lawyers also hold Commerce degrees is especially beneficial to our business clients.
The firm has transitioned to cutting edge office premises to offer clients a comfort and pride in representation they might not expect in a suburban law firm.
The practice has thrived by offering sensible cost-effective advice to individuals, small and large business entities.
