Chambers Asia Pacific 2016
Australian Law Firm of the Year
Chambers Asia Pacific 2016
Australia continues to attract overseas investment due to its sustained economic growth, diverse and strong performing industry sectors, and close proximity to the rapidly growing economies of Asia.
The strength and transparency of Australia's legal and regulatory systems also provides security. Recent reforms continue to improve the regulatory environment for business, for example, in the areas of banking and finance, corporate governance, employment, environment, privacy and tax.
There is significant transformation underway as the economy transitions from being resources centric to becoming more balanced across key industry sectors including energy and resources, banking and finance, infrastructure, real estate, healthcare, technology, tourism, retail and agriculture.
This combination of benefits and opportunities make Australia a truly strategic location to grow and operate a business.
To succeed within this complex and fast-moving commercial climate, you need a law firm that understands your business issues and can help you get to a solution fast. A firm that understands the local market but also has experience of global business.
Ashurst is well positioned to help international investors to capitalise on the many opportunities available in Australia. As part of our global network of 25 offices, we have strength and depth across Australia with offices in each major capital city and teams who provide a full service offering.
We have a track record within and beyond Australia for successfully managing large and complex multi-jurisdictional transactions and projects.
