bringing harmony to strata living


Stratify Legal is a premium Queensland law practice dedicated to the strata industry. Our mission is to bring harmony to strata communities through strong legal representation, education and advocacy.


Our directors are highly skilled in strata law. They have helped shape Queensland’s legal stratascape for more than two decades through their involvement in seminal strata proceedings and legislative reform.


Our practice is primarily devoted to bodies corporate. To ensure we are always available to provide unbiased and robust representation to our body corporate clients when they need us most, we do not act for building managers.


We provide legal advice and representation to bodies corporate and owners in community titles schemes in Queensland.
