Since Faethm’s launch less than four years ago, the Australian company has assisted clients in 21 industries in 26 countries, including Boston Consulting Group, BT, HSBC, NatWest, Nestlé Purina, Microsoft and Rio Tinto, as well as government bodies across the Asia Pacific, Europe, North America and the Middle East.
Seeking to echo Faethm’s remarkable success story, Biztech Lawyers is also on a growth trajectory, explains Anthony.
“We are known for helping world-class Australian tech businesses realise their global potential because we bring to the table specialised knowledge that comes from servicing hundreds of entrepreneurial and startup businesses in the technology arena over the last three years.”
“With offices in the US as well as Sydney and Melbourne, the fact that we have an international presence is a key point of difference for us, and we’re able to leverage an international knowledge base that deepens the skillset available to our clients and enhances our availability across all time zones.”
“We find that many of our clients are global, and accordingly they want a law firm that has a global outlook as well – in this sense, Biztech operates as a mini multi-national.” says Antony.
