  • A good move for SSD with a merger of this kind. 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.

  • This is an excellent move for both firms and another plank in the internationalizing of the legal services sector. 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!

  • Firstly, Australia has escaped the world-wide recession. 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.

  • Eaton Square under Dr Stephen Moss and Hildebrandt Consulting under Brad Hildebrandt were the consultants who helped facilitate this combination.
