Bird & Bird operates as one truly international partnership. Our open and flexible business culture allows us to configure ourselves to respond as quickly and effectively as possible to the commercial pressures faced by our clients. Our priority is providing excellent client service, however they themselves define excellence.

Our Australian office was established in Sydney following our merger with one of Australia’s premier specialist law firms focusing on new economy industries. Our team is highly regarded in the Australian and New Zealand markets, having received many high profile awards, and is consistently recognised by some of the most prestigious legal directories and institutions for its expertise. Our presence there also forms an integral part of our global offering and complements our significant practice in the Asia Pacific region where we have offices in Beijing, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore. As such, our firm is well placed to advise corporations on inbound and outbound investment opportunities with leading trading partners in the region.
