Asia Pacific Lawyers (APL) provides high-quality legal services to clients in Australia and Southeast Asia through our affiliated offices in this region.
The diverse background of our team enables us to appreciate the cultural differences between clients and respond accordingly to their specific needs. As a result, we enjoy ongoing relationships with our clients and advise them on both business and personal legal matters, including immigration.
We provide tailor made solutions to all our clients whether they be individuals, small businesses or publicly listed companies.
The Commercial and Business Law Practice Group has acted for numerous small and medium-sized businesses in Victoria, Australia. We have also acted for high net worth clients from Australia and overseas including residential and commercial development projects with a total asset value of over $100 million.
Australian companies with interests in Asia have retained our services for advice on their commercial dealings with companies in the region, most notably in relation to offshore manufacturing. We have worked for companies that are involved in the business of exporting and importing goods to and from Asia and we have experience acting for both franchisors and franchisees in the negotiation of agreements.
We are currently advising a group of Asian investors in the establishment of a seafood processing plant and aquaculture venture in Geelong, Victoria.
