Papua New Guinea has enjoyed high economic growth in recent years and continued foreign demand for PNG's commodities has positive implications for the country's broader future development.
The current government has embarked upon a wide range of reforms and initiatives, including the establishment of an Independent Commission Against Corruption and a review of taxation, particularly resource project taxation.
We practice local and international law and represent many Papua New Guinean, foreign and multinational companies on their investments and business interests, both in PNG and overseas. Our lawyers from PNG and Australia have extensive local and international experience.
We are experienced in energy, resources and infrastructure; corporate and commercial; banking and finance; international trade; privatisation; litigation and dispute resolution; foreign direct investment; employment law; project finance; and capital markets.
Our work in PNG has included acting on some of PNG's most important resources projects and commercial transactions. This experience is complemented by our close relationships with government and regulatory authorities.
We have unparalleled knowledge of PNG's business environment, developed over decades of advising PNG's key industry participants and new entrants to this emerging market.
We have extensive experience working with the PNG Government on a number of reform projects and have deep knowledge of PNG's legislative process, having been involved in the formulation, drafting and passage of a variety of PNG statutes.
