This enables us to handle from the most complex and the most sophisticated commercial transactions down to simple matters.

The development of global markets means that many of our clients do business in different jurisdictions. To respond to the needs of our clients we are members of an international legal group called LAWorld ( We were invited to become the LAWorld representative for Victoria.

Our active membership of such an organisation enables us to provide added value to our clients by referring them to a firm in a foreign jurisdiction, safe in the knowledge that our member colleagues have similar levels of service to our own. In particular, all members have broadly based commercial, corporate and business practices with litigation capabilities and can help our clients with issues such as cross border transactions, business migration or international contracts. Like us, our LAWorld colleagues have a strong commitment to the use of the latest technology and have English speaking lawyers who communicate efficiently with us.
