Licensing in Australia

Are you located overseas and looking to expand your financial services business into Australia?  Our team can help with legal advice, Australian Financial Services Licence and Australian Credit Licence applications, training and document needs.

Crypto

The law relating to crypto assets, tokens and their underlying protocols is complex and rapidly evolving.  We don’t have a standalone crypto team – all of our lawyers understand that distributed ledger technology impacts on nearly all the aspects of financial markets as we know them.  We can help you register as a Digital Currency Exchange (DCE) with AUSTRAC, implement an AML/CTF Program and more.

Commercial Work

Our commercial arm of the firm not only supports our financial services clients, but we also act for many mid to large sized corporations, helping them with broad commercial law needs.

AML/CTF

Our lawyers have a deep understanding in Financial Crime, including the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing (AML/CTF ) obligations for reporting entities and financial services and credit firms.  We can help you register your business with AUSTRAC, prepare or draft your AML/CTF Program and help you with setting out your Risk Registers.
