The HBA Legal Story

HBA Legal was formed in 2011 by legal entrepreneurs Nathan Hepple, Brett Ablong and Mark Birbeck. They had a vision to pioneer change in the legal industry, in line with clients’ imperative for better service, lower costs, faster solutions.

HBA’s philosophy is built on our core values of creative, collaborative, genuine and generous. We apply thinking and behaviour aligned with this in all that we do.

We partner with clients to take on their challenges (rather than being paper-pushers at the end of the phone), and our flexible approach means we structure service, fees and anything in between to suit each client. We talk like real people, and through our culture of innovation, we have fun finding ways to make things better.

HBA Legal is part of the HBA Group, founded by Nathan Hepple and Brett Ablong. This group also comprises claims management business Paratus, and outsourcing provider Pillion. Through Paratus and Pillion, HBA can offer clients a new, seamless approach to legal and risk management, delivering significant bottom-line results.

That’s evolution. That’s HBA Legal.
