International

We facilitate international companies entering the Australian market as well as those in Australia wanting to expand into international markets.

Being relevant to our clients and their needs is underpinned by our cornerstone strength of providing an outstanding experience every time, for every client. Gadens works with international clients doing business in Australia and Australian clients with offshore and cross-border needs; we service these clients very effectively through proven existing relationships with law firms with the right expertise in the relevant jurisdictions. We have extensive capabilities to service our clients’ international needs in areas such as intellectual property, corporate advisory, property, international tax structuring, cross border disputes and international arbitration.

Our approach to servicing clients’ international legal requirements is to work closely with reputable local firms that are highly-experienced in their own jurisdictions to achieve the best outcome for our client. Our independence ensures that:

  • Our clients receive a service that is tailor-made to their unique requirements.
  • We can work with the right firm in every instance on each individual matter.
  • Other local, in-country law firms come to us to help their clients because we do not compete with them in their respective domestic markets.

Doing business in Australia

The Australian Government welcomes foreign investment. With well-developed infrastructure, a stable political environment, robust economy and easy access to Asia Pacific, Australia is an ideal investment location for foreign companies looking to grow internationally. There are important considerations for foreign investors to make when deciding on how to enter the Australian market. Whether it’s the choice between establishing a new company, registering as a foreign company or acquiring an existing company, each option has its own regulatory and tax considerations.

At Gadens we facilitate international companies entering the Australian market as well as those in Australia wanting to expand into international markets. Through the experience and expertise across the various practice areas of our firm, we welcome the opportunity to work with foreign investors in establishing and running businesses in Australia.

Our Doing Business in Australia guide provides foreign investors with an overview of the Australian business environment and practical advice on how to go about setting up and doing business in Australia. This guide serves as an overview only and should not be used as a substitute for specific legal advice on the application of Australian law.
