The UK government has appointed MinterEllison (Australia) and MinterEllisonRuddWatts (New Zealand) in partnership with UK firm, Hogan Lovells, to advise on the negotiations of the UK-Australia and UK-New Zealand free trade agreements.

“Both trade agreements are top priorities for the UK government, and will boost trade and strengthen investment post Brexit between long standing 'friends' and like-minded economies. MinterEllison and MinterEllisonRuddWatts present a unique Trans-Tasman international trade offering,” said Jeremy Blackshaw, Managing Partner, International for MinterEllison.

The firms will be advising on the negotiation and implementation of the Agreements.

"We are delighted to be appointed by the UK government to advise on some of their first post-Brexit trade negotiations. This appointment recognises MinterEllison's market leading credentials in international trade law. We look forward to contributing to the negotiation and implementation of what promises to be a gold-standard agreement," said Mr Blackshaw.

The appointment is for three years and resulted from a competitive tender.
