International Firms

The most significant change in the practice market in Australia in recent times has been the emergence of the “international” law firms in Australia. Created through firm mergers or start-ups with an established group of senior lawyers moving “en masse”, these firms are now aggressively targeting the former safe havens of top tier clients with a truly international offering. With the continued economic growth in Asia, many firms have strategically positioned themselves to reap the benefits of this regional growth by providing a seamless legal service on a pan Asia Pacific basis.
