Cross Border Investment

Cross Border Investment - Australia

Integrated expertise for large cross-border investments

We have advised on some of the largest and highest-profile cross-border investments in recent times.

Clients in these deals rely on our integrated expertise, which includes experts in government, mergers and acquisitions (M&A), banking and finance, and tax. Basing key team members in Canberra has also enabled us to forge strong working relationships with the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB), Federal Treasury and other government departments and agencies.

We also work with clients across Asia and have extensive experience advising companies pursuing investment opportunities in Australia. With offices across Australia, Hong Kong, PRC and Europe, we can ensure you get a seamless, co-ordinated, and multi-lingual service. We have also established good working relationships with other top law firms and local counsel around the world.

Our partners assist investors with financing, negotiating, structuring and securing regulatory approvals for transactions in different industries. We also have extensive experience in project-managing multi-jurisdictional transactions.

We have a full team specialising in this area.
