MinterEllison has elevated Andrew Rentoul, the managing partner of its Brisbane office, to the role of firm chair.

A star M&A specialist, Rentoul has been with the firm since 2006. He served as a partner in the capital markets and corporate team, and was key to the expansion of the practice in relation to high value and complex M&A transactions in the infrastructure sector, the firm said. He also sat on MinterEliison’s board.

Rentoul will continue to work with clients as he assumes the responsibilities of the chair position.

“Andrew is a respected and effective leader. I congratulate him on being elected chair of the firm. He is a senior practitioner who brings to the role his wide experience in the law and business and deep understanding of our firm. It is a privilege to be elected to the role by partners, and I wish Andrew every success,” outgoing chair David O’Brien said.

Rentoul praised his predecessor’s contribution to the firm, and added that he was eager to work together with the MinterEllison leadership team.

“I am looking forward to working with my fellow board members, Virginia Briggs, our CEO and managing partner, and our leadership team. The firm has a clear strategy and a strong sense of purpose and values centred on our clients, our people and the community,” Rentoul said.

Victoria Hepburn will step into the role of Brisbane managing partner.
