What the team is known for White & Case opened its first Australia office in late 2016 with a specialised projects and infrastructure practice group targeting regional transactional, finance and construction and development mandates. The Melbourne and Sydney-based partners contribute to integrated Asia-Pacific teams advising on projects across the region for Australian and international clients.

Since entering the Australian market, the firm has established itself among clients requiring international experience and multi-jurisdictional advice relating to renewable energy projects, mining and resources assets, and transport infrastructure.

Strengths Sources attest to the firm's prominence in regional Asia-Pacific matters and its ability to organise teams in various countries, with one source stating that "the expertise in the UK, Hong Kong, Australia and the USA fits our needs for cross-border transactions." The interviewee continues to explain how "transactions in mining are usually cross-border, and White & Case really provides convenience by having offices with high-quality lawyers in most of the mining jurisdictions."
