About Us

Welcome to CGL Legal

Our Firm

CGL Legal is a boutique law firm located opposite the historic Guildford Hotel in Guildford, in close vicinity to the Midland business district, the Swan Valley vineyards and the Hazelmere industrial area. Our lawyers provide a wide range of legal services including Commercial & General Litigation, Wills & Estate Matters, Family Law, Commercial Law, Criminal Law and Employment Law.

The practice director, Alex Atkinson, worked in Perth CBD law firms for most of his career. He decided to take his knowledge and experience and set up a practice in Guildford in 2012 so that he could be closer to his home in the Perth hills. Alex has more than 30 years’ experience in litigation and has represented businesses (small to large) and individuals in the Supreme Court of Western Australia, District Court, various tribunals and Magistrates Courts. Alex is also fluent in German.

Alex has a dedicated and capable team of lawyers and support staff behind him. For feedback on our services please read the testimonials from our clients.
