Press Release: Fairfax Legal (Fairfax) joins Pacific Legal Network


Fairfax Legal (Fairfax) is pleased to confirm that it has been appointed the Papua New Guinea member firm of the Pacific Legal Network. Fairfax is headed by Principal and founder, Keith Iduhu and has grown rapidly from its beginnings in 2006. Keith is supported by a young and energetic team of lawyers and Fairfax represents a wide range of corporate, government and institutional clients. Pacific Legal Network (PLN) is the only co-ordinated network of law firms in the Pacific, allowing clients access to local in-country knowledge across the Pacific while having extensive experience in facilitating substantial cross border transactions. PLN is now in its fifteenth year of operations and its success can be largely attributed to the longevity and depth of relationships with regional and international clients and with Pacific based law firms such as Fairfax. Keith's vision for Fairfax is to facilitate the development of the next generation of lawyers in PNG: "Joining PLN gives us a platform to achieve my goal and vision for Fairfax. It helps to empower our local lawyers by giving them (and our clients) access to broader skill sets across the region, and of course the opportunity for our lawyers to work on complex regional transactions" For PLN, the addition of an experienced law firm in PNG gives inbound clients an enormous advantage in terms of being able to access relevant and well informed advice. John Ridgway, Head of Legal Services at PLN: "We have worked with the Fairfax team for some years now. We know each other and we have the same professional DNA. This initiative with Fairfax is part of our broader regional initiative, and it is very exciting to have Fairfax and PNG leading the way on this. We know our regional clients are already excited about this. We embrace the challenge of continuing to be at the forefront of regional business activity" Media contacts Papua New Guinea Keith Iduhu Principal Fairfax Legal, Pacific Legal Network kiduhu@fairfax.com.pg T +675 321 4470 Australia John Ridgway Head of Legal Services PLN Australia, Pacific Legal Network j.ridgway@pln.com.au T +61 410 520 416
