About Us

Choose a business that cares about yours. We appreciate that our clients are whole people, and accordingly we bring our whole selves to work and work in ways that suit both us and you.

WE HAVE ONE SIMPLE GOAL

How we work

We have a capability-based approach, where we work our hours to suit demand and our personal lives.

We use legal technology and automation where we can so that we can focus on what matters most: you and your needs.

When & where you need

We engage experts from around the world to suit your needs.

Whether you are after legal advice, cybersecurity audits, or an education and training session, we have the qualifications, tools and experience.

Honesty & Integrity

We recognise the importance of honesty and integrity in our engagements.

We endeavour to facilitate the free and open flow of communication and trust with our clients.

“Begin with the end in mind”

Stephen Covey, author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, suggests “an outcome-oriented mindset in every activity,” and this is how we approach our legal and consulting services. We don’t believe in wasting time unnecessarily – we prefer to use our time creating value for you.

MEET OUR LAWYERS

EJ Wise & Henry Austin-Stone.

EJ Wise

EJ is an internationally recognised lawyer and cyberlaw expert.

Prior to establishing Wise Law, EJ spent 25 years working in the legal industry with the Australian Federal and State Governments and in private practice. She specialises in cyberlaw policy and advice, international humanitarian law, law of the sea, administrative law and criminal law. 

EJ’s passion for cyber began in 1987 studying computer programming as part of an undergraduate Applied Science degree.  Years working as in-house cyber legal counsel to the Royal Australian Air Force’s cyber squadron, as well as years working within the United States Air Force’s Operational, International & Cyber Law section in the Pentagon led to EJ’s decision to enter private practice as a lawyer practising in cyberlaw.

In September 2019, EJ was featured on an episode of the Beyond Billables Podcast: EJ Wise – Cyber Lawyer & Founder of WiseLaw.

The Beyond Billables podcast is a program featuring the lives of great lawyers, understanding how they embrace change, take advantage of opportunity, and build original careers. Listen here.
