Catherine Higgins is a Sydney-based lawyer who is committed to providing affordable, yet highly strategic, business solutions for small and start-up business.

Catherine commenced her career as a paralegal – and later became a managing solicitor – in a boutique commercial law firm, while completing a double degree in Bachelor of Business (Management) and Bachelor of Laws at the University of Western Sydney.

Catherine graduated in 2009 and was admitted as a solicitor that same year. In 2012, she started her own boutique commercial law firm and in 2016, graduated from the University of New South Wales with a Masters of Law, specialising in corporate and commercial law.

Throughout her career, Catherine has appeared on behalf of her clients in the Local, District and Supreme Courts of New South Wales as well as the Federal and High Courts of Australia, and has won a number of multi-million dollar cases against top tier firms. Although finding these experiences rewarding, Catherine now prefers to focus on delivering smart legal solutions for small business.

As a result, she launched Lawbase in December 2016, a virtual law firm which provides small and start-up business owners access to comprehensive, but affordable legal services, including tailored advisory services, commercial and trademark solutions, debt recovery management and ongoing education to enable each of her clients to be highly competitive.

Catherine understands the legal needs of small businesses and the unique challenges they face. She believes that every business – no matter how small – deserves the same opportunity to succeed.
