International Trade

Piper Alderman’s cross-border legal services team has extensive experience assisting international enterprises deal with the wide variety of issues organisations face when doing business in Australia.

Before entering a new market, proper preparation is essential to ensure that relevant legal issues are identified, understood and managed. Our team is experienced in advising international clients on the best way to commence new operations in Australia and how to conduct business in the Australian business environment.

As a national firm, we are able to help our clients deal with the sometimes complex mix of state and federal legal and administrative regimes which operate in Australia as well as relevant government and industry-based regulations.

Piper Alderman acts for many multi-national corporations and for the Australian branches of many organisations listed on offshore markets. We are regularly involved in complex cross-border, international and multi-national transactions across a wide range of industries and across the globe.

Many Piper Alderman lawyers have also practiced in other jurisdictions and hold qualifications from abroad.

Piper Alderman is also a member of two international networks, TAGLaw and Legalink, linking us to a worldwide network of high quality corporate and commercial law firms.

Our team has also put together a guide called Doing Business in Australia, aimed to help those companies wishing to enter Australia. Click here to view.
