Fox Tucker Lawyers

Fox Tucker was established when the lawyers who'd been practicing as DLA Phillips Fox in Adelaide joined with those who'd been practicing as Rankine Tucker Lawyers, also of Adelaide, to form an entirely new, independent entity. This happened quite recently, in September 2010. So technically speaking, as we occasionally must, we've only just begun. But in real terms? In practitioner experience and achievements? That's a different story.
