Our experience

Over 70 years ago, Arnold Bloch Leibler was founded to act for entrepreneurs in the old-world economy. Today, that history and tradition continues as the firm guides new economy entrepreneurial clients throughout their journey from startup to raising capital, through to public listing, global expansion and exit.

We are renowned for achieving cutting edge outcomes in milestone transactions. We have advised hundreds of innovative startup founders and we have extensive experience in working with investors and venture capital firms.

Our advice for both domestic and international clients spans structuring, commercial agreements, taxation, incentive plans, strategic initiatives, IP issues and milestone transactions including capital raisings & exits, acquisitions and divestments.

Beyond legal advice, our lawyers take a deep personal interest in the success of our clients and use our strong network in Australia and beyond to introduce founders and potential investors to one another.

“They provide excellent client care and always understand the ambitions of the client and think commercially about how to achieve them.”
