Our Perth office is located at One The Esplanade in the Elizabeth Quay precinct. It’s close to many of our clients and has brilliant views of either the city, the Supreme Court Gardens or the Swan River. The office is new in 2023, and supports collaborative working styles.

Global Mobility and Client Secondments

As a global organisation we support opportunities for our lawyers to spend time in other offices within our network. Fostering our 'one firm' culture, international secondments are a key way in which we share our expertise, enrich experiences and broaden horizons.

Opportunities to spend time at a client working within their in-house legal team are also common.
