Allen & Overy’s latest promotions cycle has seen three joining the partnership at the firm’s Sydney office.

William Kim, Lisa Emanuel and Daniel Harris were among a total of 36 making partner across 13 of the firm’s global offices effective 1 May. Kim hails from the banking team, while Emanuel and Harris work with the corporate team.

Kim tackles matters related to real estate finance, structured finance, fund finance and corporate finance. He has helped clients to structure and implement upstream and downstream facilities including subscription line facilities, GP/LP facilities, and NAV and hybrid facilities.

He has handled issues involving syndicated loans, acquisition and other event-driven financings as well as on multisource financing platforms. He has also worked on significant portfolio deals and back-leverage transactions.

Kim’s clients include top investment and commercial banks, private capital fund managers and major corporates across Australia and the APAC region.

Emanuel specialises in strategic, cross border merger control and large regulatory investigations and enforcement action. An antitrust expert, she has guided clients in matters connected to digital platforms, energy and resources and financial services.

She has tackled M&A, joint ventures, and issues involving antitrust regulators, such as merger review and market studies.

Harris has spent time in both London and Sydney, and has considerable experience advising on private M&A transactions in Australia and the APAC region.
