"They're all first-rate lawyers, extremely skilled and very commercial."

Client quote, Chambers Asia Pacific

We are renowned for achieving cutting edge outcomes in milestone transactions involving large private businesses and entrepreneurial listed companies. Many of our clients have been with us for decades, and the firm has provided advice on all aspects of their business cycle, from seed through to public listing, acquisition or divestment. 

We take a deep personal interest in the success of our clients, and in ‘getting things done’. Our lawyers are known for being innovative, staunch advocates, and gifted negotiators. We are thought leaders, at the forefront of market dynamics and development in the Australian corporate landscape, with reach that extends far beyond Australia’s borders. 

Shareholder activism is here.

In recent years, shareholder activism has come to dominate conversations worldwide in boardrooms, the media and the analyst community. With a thriving activist contingent and favourable legal system, the Australian market is primed for more activity. 

Arnold Bloch Leibler has partnered with Activist Insight to produce a report providing the first detailed analysis of activist investing trends and insights in Australia.
