Our Commitment to Diversity



Level 16, 66 Eagle Street
Brisbane, Queensland, 4000

Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland, and the third largest city in Australia. Queensland’s four-pillar economy—based on construction, agriculture, resources, and tourism—makes it an attractive destination for foreign investment. This attraction is amplified by the ease with which business can be done in Queensland, and results in Brisbane being a rapidly expanding business hub in Australia.

Brisbane will also be home to the 2032 Olympics. The next decade will see Queensland prepare itself to stage this event, which has global importance and potential long-term benefits for the state. Our Brisbane office is well positioned to assist in providing crucial legal services leading up to, during, and after the staging of the Olympic Games. 

Our lawyers have a deep understanding of the local business environment and provide a full suite of services to clients wanting to take advantage of the opportunities across numerous sectors, including finance, real estate, energy and resources (including coal and gas), infrastructure, agriculture, technology, manufacturing, transport and logistics, and tourism.

Advising local and international corporations, financial institutions, governments, and private-sector clients, our team provides advice across all areas of law, including finance; restructuring and insolvency; litigation; and dispute resolution through to corporate and transactional; real estate; immigration; and labour, employment, and workplace safety.
