In 1882, William Sparke was admitted as a solicitor in Newcastle. Within a week, he’d hung out his shingle in Hunter Street and began his 65 year career. Over the years, William represented miners and mining companies, local, national and international shipping companies and municipalities (in the days when most Newcastle suburbs had their own councils).

Sparke Helmore now has offices in Newcastle, Upper Hunter, Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
