The merger brings together two practices regarding cross-border transactions – United States, Australia, the United Kingdom and other global jurisdictions.
NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 27, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Spillman&Partners is pleased to announce it has merged with prominent Australian technology law firm Biztech Lawyers. The merger will formally bring together two practices that have already complemented each other on joint representations regarding cross-border transactions involving the United States, Australia, the United Kingdom and other global jurisdictions.
Biztech Lawyers holds an indisputable reputation as a key and trusted advisor in the areas of corporate law and commercial transactions and is led by its founder, Anthony Bekker. The integration of our teams deepens the skills set available to our clients and enhances our availability across all time zones.
Biztech Lawyers founder Anthony Bekker described the natural progression of the relationship: “I’ve been working with Chris and his team for over seven years now, first as a client, then as co-counsel. It’s always been a pleasure. We noticed we were working together with increasing frequency for our common global scaleup clients. We have been stitching together cross-border deals and providing joined up AU-US legal advice that few others can offer at an affordable price point. The next natural step was to formalize the offering through a merger.”
The combined firm, operating under the Biztech Lawyers brand, will continue to focus on serving technology and other startup and high growth businesses with all their commercial legal needs (specialising in complex transactional, data, privacy, corporate and commercial), having already secured an impressive calibre of clients including a number of leading US, Australian and multinational businesses.
Chris Spillman described the possibilities that the deal brings: “I am thrilled to be working with Anthony to create this truly cross-border law firm, giving us a native capability to enable our clients’ global business plans on a round-the-clock basis. We’ve already been closely collaborating over the last few months in anticipation of this finalization and announcement. Unlike the siloed practices of the BigLaw world, with US and foreign lawyers operating under the same flag but rarely collaborating directly, the Biztech team is integrated and efficient, with one common goal of client success. ”
Anthony Bekker shared his unique perspective on the legal and operational edge that progressive global companies need to be successful, having served as General Counsel and Head of Operations at Rokt, one of Australia’s fastest growing tech companies, helping expand that business from Sydney to eight international markets: “We live and breathe high-growth tech start-ups. We get them. We know the challenges they are facing – because we’ve been there and sat in their seat. We’re with them every step of the way. Expanding into the US market is a key step in servicing our growing tech-centric clientele. ”
