Our company has been acquired, purchased other businesses, been active internationally and relocated offices. Because of this, our parent company legal advisors have changed, but I have always referred to Brett for complicated matters.

I recommend Cowell Clarke to many people and have found that virtually all have become long standing clients. It is always a pleasure dealing with professionals.

Rick Allert AO
Company Director

Brett has been my lawyer of choice for over 30 years. He is very professional, gives valuable and timely advice, prompt service and has a broad base of skills and experience. Brett always thinks things through. He has assisted me in complicated negotiations and has helped me to avoid the traps of signing an agreement before all of the ‘what ifs’ have been answered.

Venture capital transactions are time sensitive, often involve international parties, and include complex technology issues. I know I can rely on Cowell Clarke to provide timely, pragmatic and commercial advice to get the deal done.

Shane Cheek
Managing Partner
Acumen Ventures

Brett knows our business...Good lawyers and solicitors know your risk tolerance, without you having to establish it through brail. He just knows where we are at, how far to push, what we stand for and our principles. This is not a skill that can be readily emulated by other practitioners.

Glen Simpson
Group Executive
Coffey International Limited

I’ve worked with a whole range of lawyers and they often give you a long spiel about all of the things that you can’t do. I don’t want to know what I can’t do, I want to know what I can do. Rob is always to the point. He is open minded, creative and commercial. He thinks outside the box. His expertise in corporate recovery, reconstructions and turnarounds is second to none.

Partners manage the relationship and retain involvement. Legal knowledge is important, but how it is shared as commercial advice is even more so.

In essence, we are always in tune about where a case is heading and where we want to land. All the other things that one expects from a good law firm – professionalism, knowledge, experience, due diligence, quality, timeliness of advice – Cowell Clarke has in spades. This level of insight is invaluable.

I always use Cowell Clarke on complicated multi-jurisdictional matters particularly in developing countries and the Middle East. They are more than helpful. Brett led our largest acquisition, in 2008, of an American company. It was a long negotiation and a complicated deal.

Coffey International Limited

All of the partners of Cowell Clarke are aligned culturally such that all of the partners and staff that I deal with, give the same level of service. The partners have a wide set of skills, borne out of years of practice and experience at a national and international level.

Rick Allert AO
Company Director

The team at Cowell Clarke are passionate about working with companies and investors in the technology and innovation sector and they’ve built an enviable track record and network in this space. Whether it’s working on capital raisings, fund formation, mergers and acquisitions or commercial matters, they understand our business and what drives the industries and markets that we operate in.

Shane Cheek
Managing Partner
Acumen Ventures

Although Cowell Clarke have grown significantly, they still give personal service and advice. Unlike some of the larger interstate firms that I have dealt with, you’re not handed from one lawyer to another, until your matter is delegated to the most junior resource.
