About Us

Our History

Bruce Legg founded the business in 1975 as a sole practitioner.  He operated from offices in South Melbourne for 9 years until relocating to its current location in Port Melbourne in 1984.

Concentrating on small business and personal (family-group) accounting, tax and wealth creation strategies, Bruce Legg & Co has been shaped by our clients’ needs and requirements.  The business has been built purely on recommendations and referrals and with the philosophy of creating long lasting relationships.  Many of our current clients have been with us since our beginning, and we now include many of their family members as part of the client base, as well, looking after the coming generations.

Stuart Legg joined the business in November 2009. This guarantees the continuation of our business philosophy and quality of service for our future clients.
