For 100 years, Hall & Wilcox has been advising clients on a wide range of legal issues. They act nationally for Australian-based clients and multinational clients with Australian interests.

Smarter Law

At Hall & Wilcox, their purpose is to enable their clients, people and communities to thrive by practising smarter law. Smarter law is how they help their clients achieve their business objectives. It is how their people will prosper in times of change. Smarter law means that the firm is imaginative, agile, tech savvy, collaborative and remarkable. Smarter law demands service, solutions, systems and processes that are flexible, responsive, efficient and intelligent. Smarter law leads to greater value for clients.

International practice

Over many decades, their lawyers have been advising on cross-border transactions and disputes and developing a practical understanding of the business environment outside of Australia. By remaining an independent firm, when many Australia firms merged to become global, they have the flexibility to work with clients and other firms with fewer restrictions. They have several international desks led by partners and senior lawyers who are native speakers and understand first hand, the commercial and legal issues of doing business in that country. Their international desks include China Desk, Korean Desk, European Desk and German Desk.

Areas of expertise

As a full-service commercial law firm, their international clients benefit from their specialists in key practice areas, such as:

  • Banking finance
  • Capital markets
  • Corporate and commercial
  • Corporate governance
  • Employment and workplace relations
  • Financial services
  • Insolvency and reconstruction
  • Insurance
  • Intellectual Property
  • Investment Funds
  • Litigation and dispute resolution
  • Mergers and acquisitions
  • Property and projects
  • Superannuation

ILN Firm of the Month – Hellström – Stockholm, Sweden! 

FirmoftheMonth1

The ILN is proud to announce our latest firm of the month, Hellström – Stockholm, Sweden!
Hellstrom was founded in 1991 by three young lawyers who left well-established law firms to focus on international actors in London, Paris and New York and supply these with advanced finance and transactional law services for their Swedish operations. A contender. Much has happened since, and today they are a well-established, full service law firm with expertise in a range of areas. Hellström is a large firm in a small format. They think it works better that way. Their approach remains the same as in the beginning. They are proud to have employees and procedures that enable them to compete successfully with the largest firms in Sweden. Hellström delivers international quality services with the availability, dedication, personality and client focus that a smaller firm can offer.
“Lawyers you want on your side” – what does that mean? For them, it means a promise of commitment and innovative solutions that meet their clients’ needs in all phases of their business processes. Ask their clients, they are the lawyers you want on your side!
