What will you create?

You’ll help Australian businesses, not-for-profits and governments create value and improve the way they work.

  • Advising on a broad range of financing transactions, including market-leading large-scale private equity and corporate acquisitions, renewables, energy and infrastructure projects, and a range of real estate matters, including socially critical community housing developments
  • Developing deep client relationships, leveraging PwC’s broader market presence and a real opportunity to engage with clients on strategic matters beyond the role of traditional lawyers, often at or before deal inception
  • Providing commercial solutions to clients’ complex and diverse funding requirements and challenges
