Nominated for our work on transformative cross-border transactions straddling old and new economy sectors, our Corporate and M&A team has been announced a finalist in this year’s Australian Law Awards, in the category of Commercial Team of the Year.

The Australian Law Awards are regarded as the profession’s most prestigious, showcasing both individuals, firms and practice teams that are leading the way.

Over the last 12 months, our multi-disciplinary Corporate and M&A team has worked on iconic, history-making matters, including cross-border matters, where lawyers at all levels have shown courage, pushed the envelope and broken new ground. Over the last six months, the impact of COVID-19 has generated “bet the farm” challenges and opportunities for clients, and they’ve turned to us to help them navigate the uncertainty to make quick, clever decisions.

Responding to the announcement, partner Jonathan Wenig said: “The matters included in our nomination demonstrate that, as a domestic Australian law firm, the breadth and complexity of commercial matters in which ABL is involved, is highly unusual. Through building long-term relationships with some of the most successful entrepreneurs and businesses in Australia, the team has developed the commercial skills required to service clients on significant, high-stakes transactions.”

Asked to encapsulate the team’s business mantra for the nomination in 25 words or less, Jonathan summed it up this way: “Be uncompromising in your dedication to excellence.”

The winners in the Australian Law Awards will be announced on 7 August.
