  • This certainly gives the lie to everyone who said that English firms wouldn't be interested in Oz because they couldn't make enough money there. Clutz may not be at the top of the tree, but they have quality lawyers and these guys will be missed.

  • If this is the new magic circle hunting ground, you wonder if this will give CC the push it needs to go after Mallesons again...

  • The interesting thing will be how this fits into A&O's Asia-Pacific practice? Australia is an important base for Japan. How will this interact with the existing Japanese office? Does this signify an attempt by A&O to better access SE Asia>

    My firm spent several months looking at Australia and decided against it because the margins are too low. And it turned out to be the right approach. If A&O wants to have a flag in every jurisdiction, so be it, but we'll be laughing as they pour their money down the plughole.

    Oh here we go again the boring, and predictable of xenophobic outpouring on the legal pages demonstrating a depressing level of ignorance and hate

  • The opening of a Perth office is an especially smart move. Western Australia is extremely wealthy in terms of oil and gas.

  • "a depressing level of ignorance and hate" - That sounds like those tinny-baring, borish hordes I drive past every Sunday afternoon outside the Forum in Kentish Town... Though I'm not sure they're all lawyers.
