  • In the last three years, we’ve worked for 10 of the top 20 Australian companies by market value. So we know what’s happening in the market and the issues you are likely to face. We have over 100 lawyers who are qualified in Australia and New Zealand, and our core team of partners can advise you in every deal or dispute. 

    We help Australian companies in their efforts to expand their reach internationally, and with their international divestments. Equally, we also help our international clients across a broad range of sectors in their efforts to invest in, and set up operations in Australia. We’ve helped mining companies extend their reach around the globe, Australian companies looking to list abroad and Australian banks on complex cross-border financings. 

    We’re not tied to any one Australian law firm and we’ve built strong relationships with the best firms across Australia. So we’ll choose the best local firm for each matter based on our experience with them, our knowledge of the markets and the advice you need.

  • Our experience in Australia includes advising:

    • major FTSE 100 companies on anti-bribery and corruption, regulatory requirements and investigations under Australian law;
    • Australian financial institutions on financing arrangements in Europe and Asia;
    • a major trading house on environmental liabilities for 12 projects in Australia; and
    • a private equity fund on its first major acquisition in Australia.
