Startups

From our own history, we understand how dynamic businesses change over time.

In 1988, Gilbert + Tobin was nothing more than two lawyers with a clear mission: to build the leading Australian corporate law firm. We now have over 500 people across offices in three cities, working on some of the world’s largest and most complex transactions.

Helping startups grow is part of what made us who we are today – and it will be an important element of who we are tomorrow. Our strategy is simple: we will continue to invest in great ideas and support entrepreneurs wherever their journeys lead.
