New partners boost firm’s projects and tax practices

Corrs gains two senior lawyers

Corrs Chambers Westgarth has expanded its partnership with two new partners in Melbourne.

The firm has appointed Anthony Arrow as a partner in its projects practice, while Jennee Chan has been named a partner of the tax practice.

Gavin MacLaren, Corrs chief executive, said that both Arrow and Chan are “very well-regarded in their areas of expertise.”

“Anthony is a highly regarded and extremely experienced front-end construction, infrastructure and energy lawyer. He has more than two decades of experience advising governments, sponsors, developers and contractors across the full suite of procurement models, and is a strong addition to our team,” said Andrew Stephenson, who heads the firm’s projects practice.

Arrow moves to Corrs Chambers Westgarth from Pinsent Masons, where he was a partner. He has held leadership positions at the international firm, including head of energy in Australia. He was also formerly a partner at Allens, where he headed the projects group in Perth.

Chan moves to the firm from Allens, where she was most recently senior tax counsel. She was also previously a senior associate at legacy Blake Dawson.

“Jennee brings significant experience and expertise in stamp duty, particularly in relation to property and infrastructure, M&A, and energy and natural resources matters across all jurisdictions,” said Rhys Jewell, who heads the Corrs tax team.

The appointments come after DLA Piper recruited a partner from Corrs to boost its partnership in Melbourne. The former Corrs partner was a member of the firm’s commercial litigation and class actions groups.

Corrs recently confirmed its role in multiple raisings connected to the coronavirus pandemic. The deals totalled more than $450m, the firm said.
