What the team is known for As one of the top-flight independent Australian full-service firms, Clayton Utz positions itself as a go-to choice for international referrals and is able to draw on its relationships with foreign firms to co-ordinate advice to its Australian clients on their global transactions.

Interviewees highlight the firm's success in international dispute resolution when acting for non-Australian clients in disputes that concern Australian assets, and the firm is also recommended by overseas counsel to represent clients in Australia-related disputes in such venues as the Singapore International Commercial Court.

Strengths Clients confirm the strength of the firm's relationships with international firms, describing the team as "very well connected internationally with UK and European contacts" and confirming its status as "one of the few firms that haven't merged and can handle cross-border."
