Escape from anywhere!

Escape from anywhere!

Ok – so it’s maybe not as bad as all that, but with cold-weather fronts rolling in, travel strikes aplenty, and an uncertain market outlook, we are speaking to lots of lawyers considering a move from the UK/Ireland to Australia in 2023.

Conversely, we are also assisting just as many lawyers looking to move the other direction and head to the UK; definitely a trickier task at present, but something our team has extensive experience in.

Key focus areas with high demand include Corporate M&A, Investment Funds, TMT/IP, Restructuring & Insolvency, Banking & Finance, Construction/Infrastructure & Major Projects, Financial Services/Regulatory, Capital Markets, Tax, and to a lesser extent, Litigation, and Property.

Montgomery Advisory is dual-headquartered in Australia & London, and as such, is uniquely placed to assist lawyers to make a move, whatever your market. 2022 international success stories include:


  • Associate in Real Estate, national firm in London > Sydney top tier
  • Associate in Investment Funds, top tier firm in Belfast > Sydney major firm
  • Associate in Investment Funds, top tier firm in Dublin > Silver Circle in London
  • Senior Associate in Project Finance, major international in London > Sydney major international


  • Associate in TMT, top tier firm in NZ > international firm in London

We also assist domestic UK candidates to secure lateral roles in London & beyond on a daily basis. Please feel free to reach out to your local Montgomery contact for a chat about your potential move prospects and career planning in 2023.
