[11] A Lawyer Changing The World

Nicholas Stewart is changing the world. Once in a while you come across someone extraordinary who is doing extra ordinary things. They have niched their law firm Dowson Turco as an out loud and proud law firm. They support the legal needs of clients in the LGBTIQ community. But that isn’t what makes them stand out. Nicholas has dedicated his working life to changing the world, everything that they do within the law firm needs to make the world a better place. He does this through his pro bono work. Nicholas is the Vice President of New Theatre Properties, Director (Legal and Governance) at Rainbow Families NSW, LGBTI National Co-Chair and an executive at Australian Lawyers for Human Rights, a casual keynote speaker, a pro-bono lawyer at the Inner City Legal Centre, Kings Cross and a student in the Business and Human Rights Program (2018) of the International Bar Association and National Law Council of Australia. He is currently working to bring about a parliamentary inquiry into agency responses to LGBTI hate crimes in the 80s, 90s and 00s. In this capacity he is the pro bono lawyer for Alan Rosendale, a 1989 gay bashing victim.

In this podcast we talk about how they approach their marketing and the benefits and challenges of working in this space.
