"Jeremy Corbyn's feebleness on this matter is a disgrace to the Labour Party and shames its traditional creed of tolerance, as well as grossly insulting some of our fellow citizens".
The allegation against Mr Austin is nearly identical to the threat of similar action against veteran MP Margaret Hodge, who has admitted calling Mr Corbyn a "racist" and 'anti-Semitic'.
In a letter to Labour's general secretary Jennie Formby, the law firm said the party had failed to set out what the allegations against the MP were and questioned the "fairness and legitimacy" of the probe.
He accused Mr Corbyn of introducing to Labour a more "extreme" brand of politics, telling BBC Radio 4's The World This Weekend: "Somebody with views and history like his isn't really suited to the leadership of a mainstream political party".
"Jeremy was deeply upset because, when you have someone haranguing you in that way, of course it's upsetting".
It comes as British Labour politician Margaret Hodge reportedly called Corbyn "an antisemitic racist" in the House of Commons.
Responding to the editorial, Gideon Falter, chairman of Campaign Against Anti-Semitism, said: We hear from members of our community constantly that were Jeremy Corbyn to become prime minister, they would take the drastic step of leaving the country. "But the areas in which we agree far exceed the areas in which we disagree and we all agree, I think without exception, that a government led by Jeremy Corbyn would be a disaster for Britain".

And she added: "I'm not aware of any processes by which because somebody speaks to somebody else "in a particular way" we've had disciplinary procedures".
"I just can't see a situation where we discipline people for speaking their minds to each other, whether its members of the shadow cabinet or the leader of the opposition himself".

Labour's code of conduct states explicitly that "anti-Semitism is racism", and goes on to say that "it is unacceptable in our party and in wider society".
He stated numerous IHRA's examples of anti-Semitism had been "adopted word for word in our code of conduct", and noted that in others "the ground is covered".
"Jeremy is as committed to that as anyone else within our party and anyone else within our community".
The papers said that until recently, the Labour Party was a natural home for the Jewish community, but now Labour has seen "its values and integrity eroded by Corbynite contempt for Jews and Israel".
It followed the unprecedented step of three of the UK's leading Jewish newspapers publishing a joint front page message warning a Corbyn-led government would pose an "existential threat to Jewish life in this country".
