It's hard to look past Australia for foreign lawyers looking to strike the right balance between professional development and quality of life. It has one of the most resilient and reactive economies in the world and a sophisticated legal market. Lawyers here advise on complex domestic & cross-border matters every day.


Below are the cities in this region which Sonder recognise as having a growing legal industry with demand for professionals.
Sydney is Australia's financial and economic hub and has contributed significantly to Australia's economic growth over the last decade. The city is a gateway to the ever-important Asian markets and serves as the Australian HQ for many leading national and international organisations. 60% of Australia's top 100 companies are headquartered in Sydney.
Melbourne is the second-most populous city in Australia, after Sydney, and ranked 9th in the 2021 Mercer Global Quality of Living Survey. Melbourne is a major port and an important commercial and cultural centre that is renowned for its quirky restaurants, arts and culture. 30% of Australia's lawyers are now based in Melbourne.
Brisbane is the third-largest city in Australia, with a population of around 2.4 million people and a $160+ billion economy. Most major Australian and many international organisations have offices in Brisbane. Queensland is also known as the 'sunshine state' - averaging 280 days of sunshine a year. The weather is certainly an attractive feature of living in Brisbane.
Perth, the capital of Western Australia and the fourth most populous city in Australia is home to beautiful nature parks and reserves, unique wildlife encounters, and world-class walking trails. It is an extraordinary place to live. Western Australia (WA) is also developing a reputation as a regional resources service hub. It is home to the head offices of more than 300 of the top ASX listed companies, more than any other Australian city.
