As a result of advancements in technologies and reduced barriers to entry, space increasingly presents opportunities for both startups and established businesses. In a space industry driven by technological innovation and collaboration, but complicated by regulatory uncertainty and complex risk issues, having a trusted partner who understands the industry is critical.

We offer space industry participants unparalleled breadth of expertise across Australia and in all areas of law.
