About Our Founder Nick Xenophon
Nick Xenophon & Co. Lawyers established in 1984
Nick Xenophon started practicing as a lawyer at the end of 1982, after graduating with a law degree from Adelaide University. In 1984, he established and became principal of his own law firm, Xenophon & Co. Lawyers. His primary focus was on assisting South Australian’s with personal injuries as a result of motor vehicle accidents, in the workplace, in public places and for medical negligence. Nick served as president of the South Australian branch of the Australian Plaintiff Lawyers’ Association from 1994 to 1997. In 1997 Nick retired from practicing law and was elected to the Upper House of the South Australian parliament as an independent. In 2007 he was elected to the Australian Senate and currently holds this position.
“Everyone is Entitled to Fair Justice”
While today Nick is no longer actively involved in the firm on a day to day basis as he now devotes himself full time as an Independent Senator for South Australia, his unwavering values of battling for a fair and equitable outcome are firmly entrenched in the firm and all the staff at Nick Xenophon and Co. Lawyers.
The firm’s original values that “everyone is entitled to fair justice” is the guiding light in the way we continue to do business today.
Nick is very proud of the team of lawyers that work in the firm who work incredibly hard to protect people’s rights and ensure they get best possible advice, representation and the result they deserve.
