Our Australian office was established in Sydney following our merger with one of Australia’s premier specialist law firms focusing on new economy industries. Our team is highly regarded in the Australian and New Zealand markets, having received many high profile awards, and is consistently recognised by some of the most prestigious legal directories and institutions for its expertise.
With a team of 40 legal experts, our Sydney office provides advice to clients across the Asia Pacific Region in relation to corporate and commercial law, intellectual property, competition law, dispute resolution, employment, real estate, restructuring and insolvency and privacy and data protection.
The Sydney office undertakes cross-border and multi-jurisdictional work for some of the highest profile global and national corporations operating in the communications, electronics, energy and utilities, food and beverage, life sciences, information technology, media, leisure and financial services industries.
All of our lawyers work closely with other experts across the Bird & Bird network, but particularly with their colleagues in offices in Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Beijing.
Our Sydney office is headed by Managing Partner, Shane Barber.
