HWL Ebsworth's international strategy is focused on providing the highest level of legal advice to international clients transacting in Australia and to local companies operating overseas. We support our clients wherever in the world they need our assistance.
Our international offering is based on our independence. As an independent Australian firm, we are not locked into a rigid international network of law firms. Accordingly, we have the freedom to select the most appropriate local firm for our clients' business needs. By combining our lawyers' experience with that of the best local law firms, we are able to seamlessly deliver market leading advice, regardless of where the transaction is occurring.
When acting for an Australian client operating internationally, we make an assessment of the most appropriate law firm for the matter in hand based on technical expertise, relevant experience, geographical location and cultural alignment. Our existing relationships with a broad range of leading independent law firms worldwide allow this selection process to occur without delay. This model ensures that we are in a position to offer our clients the very best legal advice, based on deep local market knowledge and our familiarity with our clients' situation, objectives and preferences.
For overseas clients seeking assistance in Australia, HWL Ebsworth offers technically outstanding and commercially relevant legal advice. We understand the importance of working in partnership with international clients' existing relationship lawyers.
HWL Ebsworth's strategy of limiting our expansion to the Australian market allows us to provide international firms with certainty that we will not be seeking to compete with them within their home market. Our absolute independence ensures that we have no desire to commandeer the relationships that overseas law firms have with their relationship clients. Our interactions with international firms and clients are built on integrity and trust.
