The BDN

Our Story

Over 150 years in legal practice

Respected, Responsive and Experienced - we understand you

BDN Lawyers is one of the oldest law firms in Australia, with our longevity and success drawn in equal parts from the expertise of our practitioners and the enduring relationships we form with our clients.

BDN Lawyers as it exists today draws its history from two firms.

  • The first, Deane & Deane, started practice in Sydney in the early 1850’s.
  • The second, begun by Mr Joe Scrivener, started practice in Queanbeyan in 1861.

The two firms came together in 1923 when Deane & Deane relocated and purchased the Queanbeyan practice.

While variations have been made to the name of the firm, there has always remained a continuity of practice, principles and values unique to a local and community orientated business.

Dear valued clients

No doubt you are aware of the many challenges COVID-19 has presented for us all.  Here at BDN we are continuing to provide legal services for all of our clients.

But we are working differently; many of our staff are now working remotely from home. 

We will now communicate with you over the phone, via email or using video link as much as we can. 

If we do need to meet with you, for example to sign a will or a contract, we will only meet with you by prior arrangement and when this is essential.  We will ask you to observe our strict hygiene practices.

We are working very hard to ensure that your needs are met and that our staff are safe.

From time to time, there may be a slight delay in responding to you.  Please be patient and know that we are still here for you.
