Top Tier Firms
The top tier firms in Australia work on a national basis with offices located in most state capitals. They typically act for large listed national companies and multi-nationals as well as smaller unlisted companies across a wide range of industry sectors. Lawyers typically have strong academic records and a strong track record of working on high calibre legal work if being recruited externally. Overseas non-Australian qualified lawyers in transactional areas such as banking, corporate, energy and projects often relocate to work in top tier firms in these disciplines.
