Baker McKenzie lures HSF executive counsel

Baker McKenzie has appointed former Herbert Smith Freehills (HSF) executive counsel Emily Peverill as a commercial real estate partner in its Melbourne office.

Baker McKenzie national managing partner Anne-Marie Allgrove highlighted Peverill’s experience as a real estate lawyer, which spans more than 17 years. Peverill has advised on complex real estate matters across Australia for corporate and government clients.

She has tackled commercial property matters such as the acquisition and disposal of commercial, industrial and retail properties, the negotiation of commercial contracts, complex leasing, and property development projects. According to Baker McKenzie commercial real estate head Sebastian Busa, Peverill’s “extensive experience working on complex commercial real estate transactions and infrastructure projects throughout Australia” will significantly enhance the firm’s Melbourne practice.

Peverill’s appointment came on the heels of the firm’s recent hiring of a Norton Rose Fulbright team that included Emanuel Confos and Harriet Oldmeadow.
