Perth is quite a difficult city to crack due to its isolation and the long-established city relationships but the potential rewards are obvious. Energy and mining are booming in WA in unprecedented volumes due to the Chinese/Indian need for raw materials and Perth is an increasingly important business hub for the Western Pacific economies. The money flowing into the city over recent years has been vast.

Squire Sanders are a true international business law firm and the Perth partners will surely benefit from their international and particularly Asian reach. I believe we will see more US and international firms entering our market, with Australia’s inbound and outbound access to Asia. Congratulations to both firms!

Secondly, Perth is one of the most prosperous cities in Australia.Western Australia is very wealthy in terms of natural resources, and that can only mean one thing: more work for the lawyers. I’m sure that other hungry UK firms will follow suit.
