Polaris is the name of the North star: the first and brightest star in the night sky. Because it is stable, it has been used for centuries by explorers in navigation, and for European explorers – Polaris showed the way home. We believe that at their best, lawyers serve as navigators: guiding our clients through a complex legal system.
If you’ve been injured or have a disability, you deserve the best legal representation; whether it be in a motor vehicle accident, a workplace accident, as a result of medical negligence or as result of someone else’s negligence.
At Polaris Lawyers, we are expert lawyers who provide clear advice in plain English, when and where you need it, and with no hidden costs.
We are an innovative boutique personal injury law firm combining over 30 years of big firm expertise, with the personal service and empathy you only get with a team dedicated to you and your case.
Meet Polaris founder Nick Mann, to find out why Polaris was started and what makes it different from the big firms.
We’re committed to guiding you through the legal process, working hard and smart to:
- Maximise your financial support and compensation
- Protect your benefits and entitlements
- Prepare your case promptly and with legal expertise
- Resolve your claim without delay, while also evaluating your individual needs
Polaris Lawyers was started with a simple vision – putting our injured clients first as we guide them to a great result. At Polaris we ask: how can we help? We don’t just work for you; we work with you. We listen, we advise and we act.
It might not sound revolutionary, but for us this means delivering top quality personal service for every client, keeping our promises, no nonsense advice, and cost certainty for every one of our clients.
We’ve learned, from many years of experience, that clients want up front and easy to understand advice. We understand that if you’ve been injured, you don’t know where you stand legally, and the last thing you want is costly and complicated legal advice.
At Polaris we promise no legal jargon – we guide you through the legal claim, giving you advice and updates in plain English, when you want it.

Our focus and commitment guides us to get the best possible legal outcomes for you:
- We’re on your side – we’re with you every step of the way to get the outcome you deserve.
- Compassion and personal service – every client treated with respect and empathy. You’re not just a number.
- No hidden costs or fees: Know where you stand from day 1. We offer no win no fee representation, a clear quote on your costs you pay if you win, and caps on costs so that you keep the majority of any compensation you receive.
