Our Melbourne office provides risk advisory and legal services across a range of industries, with a strong focus on financial institutions and the technology and innovation sectors. We support Australia’s leading banks and insurers in managing change resulting from regulatory reform, while limiting business risk and ensuring return on investment.
Our leading construction and engineering team has a strong track record in large and complex projects, with experience across procurement strategy, project structuring, negotiation and preparation of contracts. Our life sciences and franchising teams are also market-leading. Our Melbourne litigators are renowned for successfully concluding very large litigation, including cross-border commercial claims, class actions and infrastructure construction disputes.
One of the largest global law firms in Australia, we work closely with our teams in Brisbane, Canberra, Perth and Sydney. We also provide a full service indigenous commercial law service through Jaramer Legal, our joint venture with Mailman Law. Jaramer Legal is the only full service indigenous commercial law firm able to leverage Indigenous Procurement Policies (IPP) across federal, state and territory governments, as well as in the corporate sector. It also provides legal services intrinsically linked to improving economic outcomes for Indigenous peoples under the Closing the Gap Policy and other similar initiatives.
