As all business owners and senior managers know, building and maintaining a strong, healthy business is a challenge in any industry, let alone one that operates overseas. International markets present unique legal, commercial, political, social and cultural conditions and requirements, which are subject to constant change and language difficulties. Our International Business team has the skills and experience to help you successfully navigate the issues.
The same team also has considerable experience in assisting inbound investors. Most frequently this has been in establishing the most appropriate legal and financial structures for their local investments, taking into account their anticipated commercial outcomes, risks, potential taxation liabilities and personal objectives including for permanent residency. But our skills are not limited to these areas alone; we also advise established foreign owned businesses on cross-border issues in their operations, residency matters and so on.
We have worked closely with clients in most major global business regions, including China, India, South-East Asia, Europe, the USA and Australasia, to help them make the most of their opportunities and manage their risks.
Our international expertise spans many areas of corporate and commercial law, tax, intellectual property and legal and justice projects. We have particular experience in advising participants in the agribusiness, wine, franchising and property and construction industries.
We are also actively involved in several international associations, including the American Chamber of Commerce (AMCHAM), Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce (AICC), Australia India Business Council (AIBC) and Japan Australia Business Council (JABC).
