Norton Rose Fulbright is highlighted for its blend of global, Pacific and 'on-the-ground PNG knowledge and experience'. Karo Lelai, who is singled out for her 'good government relationships', and Keira Brennan in Brisbane head the practice. The arrival of John Biddle from an in-house general counsel role and associate Benjamin Yalehen has boosted the team of late. Special counsel Paul Toua handles a range of corporate matters in the energy/natural resources sectors and the team also takes on significant work in the financial services, transport and urban development arenas. Australia-based transport/shipping expert Ernest van Buuren has left the firm to join Clyde & Co LLP.
‘NRF is unique in that it offers extensive global experience blended in with Pacific and especially PNG on the ground knowledge and experience. Key capabilities in resource developments and in particular Oil & Gas.’
‘The key strengths are the extensive and diverse PNG legal experience & PNG network contacts that the local NRF PNG staff have and can draw on. There is attention to customer service; personable and warmly approachable dialogue and communication interface. Open to reasonable negotiation to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes with a view to future repeat business.’
‘Excellent dealings to-date with Paul Toua.’
