The nature of business is becoming increasingly global and a thorough understanding of the complexities involved with international dealings and disputes is critical.

Acting for multinational corporations as well as the Australian branches of many organisations listed in offshore markets, Piper Alderman is regularly involved in complex negotiations across a wide variety of industries and countries. Many of our lawyers hold international qualifications and have practised in other jurisdictions, allowing us to offer our clients effective cross-border legal services backed by extensive experience.

Our international networks are extensive, allowing us to draw upon the expertise of lawyers in local jurisdictions across the globe. Through our membership of TAGLaw and Legalink, we have access to a global network of leading independent law firms located in the world’s top financial and commercial centres.

We are often selected by clients and overseas law firms because of our expertise as well as our independence, as we are not formally aligned with a global law firm. We are also a single, united partnership which facilitates a unified approach to legal services nationally. Our national presence also helps overseas companies negotiate the daunting and often complex mix of state and federal legislature across Australia.
