Bugden Allen Graham Lawyers is a technology-focused law firm servicing the Australian and overseas property sector, with special expertise on common interest subdivisions such as strata and
community titles.

Our firm is led by three of Australia’s preeminent experts on strata title law and development, Gary Bugden OAM, Michael Allen and Tim Graham who have collectively practiced in this area for close to 100 years.


We work with property developers, strata managers, financiers, Owners Corporations, Governments and other law firms on the design, development and management aspects of community and strata title schemes. Our clients include some of the world’s leading property developers and our team has consulted on some of the largest and most complex real estate developments in the world.

Areas of Practice

We have expertise across a broad range of practice areas in property development and strata:


Bugden Allen Graham Lawyers has the most experienced and innovative team of development lawyers in Australia with an unmatched track record of successfully structuring large and complex developments.


While working to expand our range of on-line virtual legal products (designed to produce quality legal services at minimal cost) our experienced strata and community title lawyers advise on the full range of legal, governance and management issues which confront management committees.


Bugden Allen Graham Lawyers is very experienced in advising developers, bodies corporate and caretakers in relation to management rights issues, many of which are contentious.


Where a scheme is experiencing serious problems because of poor structuring by the developer, the development team at Bugden Allen Graham Lawyers can assist. This includes working with developers and owners looking to terminate and re-develop an ageing strata scheme.


The dispute resolution team at Bugden Allen Graham Lawyers is focused on achieving the best outcome for its client, be that a negotiated resolution of the dispute or a contested matter before a Court or Tribunal.


Bugden Allen Graham Lawyers provide strata and community title consultancy services to Governments and agencies both within Australia and overseas. Members of our Government consultancy team have worked in democratic, communist and autocratic political environments in both common law and civil law systems.


Although we are not focused on general property law (such as cottage conveyancing and domestic leasing), our broad-based strata and community title practice inevitably results in us being involved in related commercial property transactions.


Our IT consulting team has extensive experience in designing and building cloud-based strata management platforms. We work with the product teams of software and strata management companies to ensure their management and accounting solutions are legally compliant.


Our team works with energy operators, owners corporations, strata managers and suppliers on a range of sustainability initiatives in the built environment such as the implementation of NABERS, by-laws for retrofitting and embedded network contracts.
