Chris Setter – Director and Principal Lawyer

After years working as a nurse and health system manager then as a solicitor in top-tier Australian and international law firms and government, I founded Health Law Solutions to support busy health professionals who need practical legal solutions to help their practices thrive.  

I am motivated to use my extensive healthcare experience to tailor solutions for busy health professionals with their own practices.  I specialise in business sale and purchase, lease and purchase of property and clinical equipment, business structures, contract drafting and negotiation,  trademark and IP, regulatory advice, insurance and employment arrangements.  I can also support you to develop policies and procedures, risk management frameworks and business plans and to obtain research and other grant funding.  

Meeting up

I know you need to focus on running your practice and seeing patients so, when meetings are required, let me come to you.  I also offer tele and video-conferencing, including after hours so you can get home to the kids and chat once they’re tucked in for the night. 

Also, we both want meetings to be productive so I’ll send you documents ahead of time so you know in advance what we’ll be discussing.


You need predictability, so most of our prices are fixed, please see the fixed fee price list. We know you don’t want surprises and have better things to do with your time than call around getting quotes.

Giving back

Each time you refer a new client to us, we’ll donate $10 to the MND and Me Foundation or AEIOU Foundation to support people with Motor Neurone Disease or Autism.
