New partners boost firm’s projects and tax practices
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.
