Master Builders NT



As a leading global firm that provides legal services and commercial solutions to businesses across a range of sectors, our team needs to be agile and evolving in thought to ensure that we can apply the most up-to-date approaches to our clients’ challenges and opportunities.

Our clients are looking for advice that is based on diversity of thought, and that comes from sharing ideas from many perspectives. Turning an idea or old problem on its head and viewing it through a different lens is the way forward in a disrupted world that is ever-changing, where technology and interconnectedness are moving at a rapid pace, and where ultimately, innovation is key to success.

That is why MinterEllison supports TEDxDarwin. We understand the importance of new ideas generation and encourage their incubation through platforms such as TEDx.
