Our value propositition to you
“Lawsons. The experience and benefits of a big firm with small firm attention”
Robert Lo, CA
Lawsons’ principal and founder, Robert Lo, is a chartered accountant with 30 years of experience. He gained his qualifications in the UK and worked in London over a period of 10 years, several of which, as a chartered accountant with a large firm.
Robert started private practice in Melbourne in 1990 after a few years with another large chartered firm in Melbourne.
In 2000, he founded Lawsons practice in Mount Waverley.
Large firm experience with small firm attention
Robert recognised that many smaller businesses are caught in a dilemma: they need the confidence of a big accounting firm but after paying premium fees find their businesses are not big enough to get the service levels and attention they need.
With this in mind Lawsons was set up to offer the experience and benefits of a big accounting firm with the dedicated attention by a small firm to businesses in the Monash area.
This has been very well received by Lawsons’ clients all of which are long term clients.
