We are delighted to announce the opening of our Australian office in Sydney! Emma’s strong leadership has brought her to Australia to set up Cleveland & Co’s Asia-Pacific office, turning Covid’s challenges into an opportunity to capitalise on business development. This reflects Emma’s strategic vision: evolving the business when faced with external challenges.

‘We are thrilled to expand our global outsourced in-house legal team into Asia Pacific. We can now offer our clients access to a deeper pool of high performing specialists in financial services and investment management across multiple jurisdictions, via a single engagement with us and single monthly cost to the client.’ says Emma Cleveland, CEO.

To start this new and exciting journey we have brought Andrew Goldstein on board as our Managing Director for the Asia Pacific region. Andrew has been integrated within the financial services industry for over 20 years. During that time, Andrew has spent more than 15 years in senior, legal advisory positions at Macquarie Bank and Challenger. In 2020, Andrew was appointed as the Co-Chair of the Financial Services Council’s Legal and Compliance Experts Group, cementing his reputation as a recognised industry leader in financial services law and regulation. Andrew joins us as an integral member of the team to lead us in the next stage of our expansion.

Cleveland & Co was founded to be a pace setting law firm with a strong culture of leadership, innovation, diversity and professional improvement. As a leading boutique law firm in the financial services industry, in under ten years Cleveland & Co has grown to service approximately 200 clients with AUM in excess of £8.7tn and are the first and only law firm exclusively offering an outsourced in-house legal model to financial services firms.
