What you’ve said about us
APL have been valued legal partners of HOST International from its inception, advising on local and global legal issues as HOST expanded overseas.
People & Culture Manager
Management of over 200 staff working in Sydney, interstate and internationally was made significantly easier thanks to APL’s expert legal advice.
These guys treat my business like their own, and look after our challenges with such passion and dedication. I cannot recommend APL highly enough.
Chris Daniel Wong
Chief Executive Officer
Tamsin and Shanil are critical partners who we rely on to look after the set up and expansion of our Malaysian business in Australia. Australian Presence Legal is our commercial law firm of choice in Australia and are highly recommended.
Government of Sri Lanka
I have observed the way the team at Australian Presence Legal have assisted local and expat Sri Lankans, and was impressed with the level of personal care, which was well in excess of what would normally be expected from a city law firm.
You can imagine my stress when my partner found out that he had one week left to remain in Australia. Tamsin resolved the problem in 24 hours! Our little family is so grateful for the wonderful work done by the APL immigration team.
Thanks to an impressive and persuasive legal submission, the APL team helped Ventrac secure a business critical new team member from South Africa.
Jacob Egholm Lyngsø
Actona Company A/S
Actona Company relies on the specialised advice given by APL to bring key members of our Danish team to fill critical roles in Australia and New Zealand.
Always approachable, always reliable, and most importantly, the legal outcomes for my business have always been positive and cost effective.
These guys turned around a highly complex conveyance within an insanely short timeframe when everyone else said it was impossible.
We have worked with the team at APL on a range of commercial matters, and have been very impressed with the timeliness, attention to detail and quality of work their lawyers have produced over the years.

Campus Living Villages
Buying our first home was a nerve wracking experience, and we really appreciated the time, patience and personal attention given by Nathaniel Murray throughout the conveyance.

We love the wonderful work being done by the Otara Foundation and Embark for the street dogs of Sri Lanka, by educating the public and conducting awareness campaigns as well as rescues since 2007. The emphasis has been to making it fashionable to adopt street dogs, in the hope of fostering a more compassionate attitude towards them.
Embark is provided financial backing largely by Otara Gunewardene, an entrepreneur, fashion icon, and philanthropist.
Much needed additional support is provided by generous advocacy groups and individuals who strongly support the welfare of street dogs.
We are so happy to make a small regular contribution by donating a percentage of our monthly billing to Embark, and we encourage our friends to also consider donating to this wonderful organisation:
