A handful of Australian law firms are making good money out of the federal government. Top of the list is Corrs Chambers.

New figures revealed by Treasurer Peter Costello, in answer to questions from the Labor Party, show seven government agencies and departments paid nine legal firms $7.5 million in fees during 2004-05.

The biggest winner was Corrs Chambers Westgarth which was paid $2.2 million for its work with the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and the tax office.

Philips Fox was not far behind, receiving $2 million, most of which came from the ACCC and the National Competition Council.
