Who We Are

Why 1878?

David’s family have been involved in the practice of law in South Australia since 1878 when David’s Great Great Grandfather Charles T Hargrave (the Elder) was admitted to the partnership which became ‘Knox, Gwynne & Hargrave’, later known as Knox and Hargrave.

Knox and Hargrave was the oldest law firm in South Australia with a continuous history which can be traced back to a legal partnership created in 1838.

David worked for a later partnership of the Knox and Hargrave firm prior to incorporating 1878 Elix Lawyers in December 2011.

Brigid joined 1878 Elix Lawyers in 2016 as a law clerk and then commenced work as a solicitor following her admission in October 2016.  Tui joined the team in March 2018.
