It's hard to look past the business opportunities presented by Australia's harbour city. A gateway for the aviation, construction and insurance sectors, Sydney is also known as a centre for finance and trade.

Investment opportunities abound and HFW's specialist lawyers provide support in major real estate developments, shipping logistics operations, key infrastructure projects and hospitality developments as well as to insurance and re-insurance majors and asset financiers.
