Assisting overseas clients
We provide our international clients with a full range of legal services and work in conjunction with their advisers and consultants to ensure that all of their needs are met.
Specific services for foreign investors in Australia include:
- assistance, through our industry networks, in identifying and evaluating investment opportunities
- due diligence
- establishing and structuring clients’ Australian investments in a tax effective manner; guiding clients through the regulatory and Government approval process.
We are also happy to assist in the organisation and management of investor feasibility missions. We are typically engaged in the early stages of a transaction or a project. This enables us to provide a strong practical context for our legal advice.
Where appropriate, we work closely with Invest Australia (the Australian Government’s inward investment agency) and the Foreign Investment Review Board, to facilitate investment solutions that meet our client’s business objectives.
