We assist privately owned and unlisted companies looking to list, predominately on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), and can facilitate the process including:

In addition, we are a "Nominated Advisor" of the National Stock Exchange of Australia (NSX).

We are also able to provide Australian related legal advice to listed and unlisted companies wanting to list on other exchanges, such as the LSE, AIM, TSX and SGX.
