Outbound investments are vital to Australia’s prosperity and growth. Many of Australia’s leading companies have global footprints and are at the forefront of international developments. Others seek new opportunities for growth, in established or emerging markets.
We provide an integrated solution to Australian organisations looking to invest internationally. Our teams have substantial direct experience supporting clients with major projects, transactions and disputes around the world, working with local counsel in relevant jurisdictions. We have strong long-term relationships with leading law firms globally, and connect with the best lawyers internationally to provide our clients with the right team for every engagement.
Leveraging our substantial international experience, we advise our clients on strategies for managing investment risks, including entry point investment structures, obtaining the best protections under investment and tax treaties and managing tax and revenue risks.
For investments in emerging markets, which inherently involve higher risk, we provide our clients with invaluable insights arising from our unique experience acting for emerging market governments (including advising senior ministers and officials) and conversely negotiating projects, transactions and joint ventures with host states and state-owned enterprises. We support our clients to invest with confidence, wherever in the world they do so.
