Our team has been involved in some of Australia's most significant corporatisation and privatisation projects over the last two decades. Our past roles on many privatisation projects have given us a full appreciation of the commercial sale issues, strategy and process. This has included roles acting for governments and bidders on sale processes executed as both trade sales and IPOs over a range of industries.

We appreciate the policy considerations such as stakeholder impact, the minimisation of financial risks and the ongoing provision of services and take a collaborative approach to all projects.
