Humphrey is a name that has become synonymous with private equity, having literally ‘written the book’: The Australian Private Equity Handbook (CCH). With key clients that include AMP Capital and Macquarie Capital, Humphrey has a reputation as a safe pair of hands on private equity and more broadly midmarket corporate and M&A deals. Recent advice includes that given to Tea & Coffee Traders on the sale of its shares in Jireh Group to the Singapore-listed Global Yellow Pages, for a purchase price of $35.6m. Since joining Sparke Helmore in January 2012 to lead the firm’s national corporate practice, Humphrey has built an eight-partner team from the ground up.
