Our Australian offices work on some of the most significant transactions in the Asia Pacific region, such as representing the New South Wales government on the sale of its electricity retail and generation assets — the country's largest privatization. We also advised Recruit Holdings, Japan's largest staffing firm, on its entry into the Australian market via two major acquisitions that transformed Recruit into the second-largest staffing firm in Australia.

World-Class Career Opportunities
We are committed to providing you with world-class opportunities to learn, develop and succeed in your career. We focus on improving the leadership, business development and project management skills of our lawyers by providing programs to expand their experience.
Corporate Social Responsibility in the Australian offices comprises two distinct areas: the pro bono legal services provided by our lawyers and the community service activities undertaken by all staff.
We believe that providing pro bono legal services is a fundamental professional responsibility. As lawyers, we have specific skills and the best way to assist those in need is to utilise those skills. Underscoring our commitment, all our lawyers are expected to work on pro bono matters and we have a dedicated pro bono practice group. We are also a signatory to the National Pro Bono Aspirational Target of at least 35 hours of pro bono legal work per lawyer per year.
