Our Australian partners among the very Best Lawyers

Norton Rose Fulbright Australia has finished with strong results in the annual Best Lawyers peer-review rankings, published by The Australian Financial Review on August 11, 2014.

Wayne Spanner, Managing Partner in Australia, said the results showcased the impressive depth across the practice.

"What is particularly pleasing is that we have strength in all practice areas – disputes, corporate and banking and finance. The partners who have been recognised are among the very best in Australia and thoroughly deserve the recognition from their peers that they have received today."
