Who’s behind Opus?
Opus Workspaces is a subsidiary of Barristers’ Chambers Limited (BCL) and was acquired in March 2018. BCL is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Victorian Bar and its purpose is to be the home of the Bar, open to all.
BCL’s initial objective was to provide accommodation to barristers without the financial impediments found in other states. BCL’s ability to offer affordable and well-located chambers encouraged a diverse range of individuals to pursue a career in law, not just those from wealth.
Since that time, BCL has grown and now provides chambers for barristers across seven locations in the Melbourne CBD legal precinct. Coupled with a suite of integrated service solutions including IT and Telecommunications, Facilities Management, Practice Support Services and a Business Centre, BCL provides a full range of services to the Victorian Bar.
BCL is already a major tenant at 200 Queen Street where Opus Workspaces is located, providing chambers to barristers across 15 floors in the building for over ten years.
BCL’s strategy is to be an efficient services organisation based on three key areas; innovative price competitive technology, modern affordable chambers and fast and responsive solutions. It is focused on reinvestment back into the business to improve and deliver the fundamental services a barrister needs to be successful. It aims to be responsive, decisive and provide these services at the lowest possible cost.
To re-engineer our operating model through effective systems, processes and people. To ensure the permanent resolution of systemic issues. To have the best people focused on being efficient, low cost, responsive proactive and decisive.
Strong Property Portfolio
To effectively manage our current property portfolio through a longer-term property investment strategy. To be commercially efficient and financially prudent to control the costs passed onto barristers.
To provide price competitive innovative technology solutions now and into the future that are relevant, reliable and reduce risk.
