Chambers Global: "A very professional, well-resourced and responsive firm." "We considered some other firms, but decided to offer the work to Clayton Utz on the basis of its detailed proposal and the obvious breadth and depth of expertise within the firm. They kept to the initial timetable, which was extremely tight for such a complex project, and delivered on time. They also provided follow-up advice where necessary after completion of the project."
