Our Perth office has been at the centre of some of the most high-profile and complex transactions and matters in the Western Australian legal market for more than 20 years. The office has grown rapidly over the past two decades, and is recognised as a significant legal force within the Western Australian business community.

We have market-leading experience, love the work we do, and take a collaborative approach to working with clients. This means our clients receive the highest-quality advice from a team focused on building long-term relationships.

We work in a range of sectors, including Mining, Oil & Gas, Banks & Financial Institutions, Infrastructure & Transport, Power & Utilities, Real Estate, and Government.

As well as being part of the 'Australian Law Firm of the Year' (Chambers Asia-Pacific 2017), we are proud to be a 'Certified Carbon Neutral Firm' – the first major Australian law firm to achieve this (Carbon Neutral Program). We are a signatory to the Diversity and Equality Charter (a Law Council of Australia initiative), and we have a community engagement program, in which our people can contribute their skills and resources to make a real difference in: alleviating disadvantage, access to justice, reconciliation and protecting the natural environment. To us, being a leading law firm is about more than just delivering excellent legal advice.
