Our Commitment to Diversity



Level 32, 44 St Georges Terrace
Perth, Western Australia, 6000

Located in the capital city of resource-rich Western Australia, our Perth office supports local and national clients, as well as a rapidly growing number of international clients.

Perth is located in the same time zone as 60% of the world’s population. As a result, our lawyers are ideally placed to support the extraordinary levels of inbound investment into the resources, agribusiness, and property investment sectors in Australia. We also support companies with their projects and outbound investment into locations such as Africa, Asia, Canada, and South America.

In addition to servicing the construction, mining, and oil and gas industries—as well as the large labour forces those companies supervise—our lawyers advise a broad range of owners, developers, and investors on their acquisitions and disposals, subdivisions, leasing, due diligence, agricultural, and aged care matters.

Our Corporate team supports clients with transformational mergers and acquisitions, capital raisings, and governance in the mining, oil and gas, agribusiness, and startup industries.

Our Litigation and Dispute Resolution teams have deep knowledge in a number of sectors, including mining, oil and gas, sports, and insolvency. Some of Perth's most complex and significant litigations, coronial inquests, and regulatory investigations have been handled by our firm.
