Deutsch Miller | Legal 500 Asia Pacific – Dispute Resolution – Ranked: Tier 4

The firm is delighted to be recognised for the 9th consecutive year in the 2020 Legal 500 Asia Pacific, maintaining our tier 4 ranking, with particular mention of dispute resolution partners Mark Deutsch and Shane Anderton.

This is a result of the hard work of the dedicated team throughout 2019 and we are looking forward to an equally challenging and exciting 2020.

The Legal 500 - Asia Pacific - Dispute Resolution - Tier 4

Described as having ‘impeccable integrity’, client-focused Deutsch Miller is a small but well-regarded firm in dispute resolution. It successfully defended BNP Paribas in its high-profile dispute with Santos Ltd and the motorsports administrator V8 Supercars against one of its racing teams. It also specialises in representing high-profile individuals in matters relating to wills, trusts and defamation – most notably for Ms Hope Rinehart Walker in trust proceedings relating to the multi-billion dollar Rinehart fortune. The practice is led by Shane Anderton and Mark Deutsch, who also advise Abigail Boyd M.P. in a complex political matter.


‘The adaptability of the team to work across complex matters in a cohesive manner and to keep clients informed of the status of things and recommendations as they evolve is a strength.’

‘While one would prefer not to be involved in legal disputes, DM and Mark Deutsch make the process more relaxed and are excellent at dispersing anxiety and worry through well informed guidance and outcomes.’
