In this regular section which appears in our APAC region's newsletter, a selection of our members in the region share a snapshot of the collaborative referrals they have received and worked on from across the APAC region and internationally.


David Baumgartners at Baumgartners, Brisbane and Melbourne, Australia

There was a lot of activity this quarter between Baumgartners in Australia and fellow member firms around the world. This included providing a quote to Alliotts in London to carry out single joint expert witness services in a UK divorce case that included UK and Australian assets. Manus Brady & Co, AGA’s law firm in Ireland requested franchising advice for a client based in Melbourne and Baumgartners worked with Audalis in Germany, after the latter required tax advice for a client selling shares in a Berlin-based company.

Baumgartners and Alliott NZ also worked together after the former identified potential new business analytical software for the firm which Alliott NZ already uses. Mentoring support from Alliott NZ colleagues has been instrumental in helping with the decision-making process.
