Within a top tier firm you've advised as Lead Solicitor on transactional deals upward of $500 million and acted as advisory capacity on substantial E&R projects.

Many firms claimed to be positioned for Asia Pacific. It is not just having a network of offices across Asia nor is it just having a awarded Partner in the M&A space. It is a matter of being in a firm where they are central to their clients in a global sense but in particular in the US with subsidiaries and links to the firms in Asia. Very few law firms in Australia offer that combination.
This global firm is one of the highest grossing firms in Asia Pacific and has an eminent position in the US market. Their focus is not to try for substantial market share in Australia but to support their current clients in the Asian market. This means the focus is on delivery on truly global deals rather than you trying to bring in deals in order to justify progression in to a Senior title.
