The Defence industry is experiencing an unprecedented level of growth in response to record government investment and a changing geopolitical landscape.  The Australian Defence industry is key to maintaining sovereign capability and involves a deep, varied and far-reaching supply chain.

Piper Alderman has a long and proud history of serving Australia’s Defence industry.  From being a founding member of the Defence Teaming Centre to possessing the specialist experience needed to service both industry and government, our team has consulted on a number of key projects, consistently demonstrates thought leadership, and is active in the wider industry.

Piper Alderman has the capability, accessibility and expertise needed to help companies understand and respond to major requests for tender.  Our lawyers regularly advise on multi-million dollar property and corporate acquisition deals within the Defence sector, and understand the regulatory environment that Defence industry companies operate in.

We identify and manage key risks, and ensure our clients are equipped to achieve their goals and obligations, all with the sensitivity that this industry demands. We know that time is of the essence, that requirements move rapidly and that experience matters.
