About Us

Specialist and service-led. With focused expertise and experience.

A practice geared specifically to take care of the complex layers of legal matters that affect today’s business owners. This was the foundation upon which Bunbury Darcy has been founded and built – combining over 30 years of legal expertise with a specialised approach to law.

As life becomes more complex, the world requires specialist solutions to specific problems. This is where real effectiveness and efficiency lies. Conor Bunbury and Marie Darcy established Bunbury Darcy in 2018 to provide a specialised boutique legal service to local businesses of all sizes. By moving away from time-intensive areas of general law – we are able to offer our clients concentrated focus, greater availability and a personal approach to their business requirements.

It Starts with Being Interested...

The founding principle on which our practice has been built is authentic interest in your business. Both partners share a passion for commercial law and in working with businesses to understand how they tick, grow and thrive. We’re fascinated by business in action, and our greatest reward is being a part of their successful stories. And in yours. We’re interested  – and it makes a difference.


The freedom of focus – all of our time is dedicated to business and property law, which maximises our knowledge, availability and experience.

Partner-led personal service – as a small practice, you will always deal with one of the two business principles. Our simple structure and lean way of working allows us to be responsive, agile and always involved – to get the job done, with the right result, in the right time.

Clarity conscious – We don’t clutter with complexities. Whatever service we’re providing, we’ll make it as simple and straightforward as possible.

The spirit of open – From what we do, to how we charge, we are transparent and clear.
