As a truly Australian firm, our goal is to be the independent firm of choice for international companies seeking to do business in Australia.  We provide a complete suite of transactional support and commercial law services.

Our partners regularly travel to the UK, Europe, US and throughout the Asia-Pacific to develop and build on our relationships with international clients and leading independent law firms with whom we have cross-referral relationships.  We seek out firms which are "best of breed" and which share our commitment to excellence and our service ethic.  We work with firms that reflect our distinctive "Lander & Rogers culture".  This is very important to us and to our clients.
