After opening its doors just a year ago, Pinsent Masons Australia has won a place in Australasian Lawyer's Fast Firms report.

The firm has continued to grow the practice, most recently adding infrastructure-focused corporate specialist Ewan Robertson, and infrastructure specialists Anthony Arrow and Margaret Cole, to the team.
