The HBA Legal Story

HBA Legal was formed to challenge the traditional law firm model and instead bring clients fast, efficient, and commercially savvy legal services.   Our mission remains the same today as at the beginning –   to simplify and solve clients’ problems across the insurance industry, working innovatively in all that we do.

Since HBA’s inception in 2011, legal entrepreneurs Nathan Hepple and Brett Ablong have gone on to create the HBA Group, three allied businesses that together power new solutions and exceptional outcomes for clients.  Their vision to pioneer change in the legal industry, to help relieve clients’ commercial pressures, is being realised.

HBA works ‘the HBA Way’ –  a philosophy built on flexibility, innovation and partnership. It is underpinned by our core values of creative, collaborative, genuine and generous; and our ‘One HBA’ business model which harnesses the skills and experience of our entire national network, breaking apart old school silos and restrictions to success.

We partner with clients to take on their challenges, 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.

The HBA Group also comprises claims management business Paratus, and legal process and technology provider Pillion.   In alliance with Paratus and Pillion, HBA is uniquely placed to offer clients a seamless approach to legal, claims and risk management, delivering significant bottom-line results.

That’s evolution. That’s HBA Legal.
