Australia: Corrs China Business Group
Last Updated: 10 April 2016

China and Australia are natural partners, with bilateral trade between the two countries worth A$105 billion. Investment between the two continues to grow.

The Corrs China Business Group works on behalf of clients to effectively and efficiently navigate Australia's legal and regulatory environment. Collaboration is fundamental to how we do business. Our clients' success in investing and operating in Australia for the long term is the benchmark for our success.

Corrs' China Business Group is co-chaired by Dr Geoff Raby, former Australian Ambassador to the People's Republic of China. It focuses on providing practical and strategic advice to Chinese clients investing and operating in Australia. Our China Group has advised on some of the largest and most complex investments by Chinese businesses in Australia. We know that successfully executing a transaction for Chinese businesses requires long term relationships to facilitate a deep understanding of our clients' strategic objectives. We have acted for Chinese clients over many years and members of our team have lived and worked in China, so we appreciate the framework in which Chinese business operates.

Our outstanding track record of executing deals on behalf of Chinese businesses and obtaining foreign investment approvals speaks for itself. We deal regularly with the Australian Government on foreign investment issues and by taking a practical approach can facilitate even the most politically sensitive applications through the Foreign Investment Review Board to achieve a successful outcome.

A commitment to teamwork forms the cornerstone of our approach to client service. We are proud of our longstanding relationships with many leading Chinese companies.

Our clients include both state-owned enterprises and private companies, including those operating in energy and resources, mining and metals, agribusiness, technology and communications and manufacturing.
