KWM acts as investor sells majority stake in Australian supply chain giant

King & Wood Mallesons (KWM) is continuing its work for a global investment manager as it exits a majority position on an Australian ports and supply chain giant.

KWM is advising Corsair Infrastructure Partners (CIP), the global infrastructure investment business of Corsair Capital, as Dubai-based DP World regains a majority holding in DP World Australia (DPWA).

The stake is being sold by Gateway Infrastructure Investments, managed by CIP, to DP World and to new investment funds managed by CIP, which retain a substantial minority investment in DPWA.

The transaction builds on KWM’s long-standing relationship advising CIP, said Ros Anderson, who is jointly heading the firm’s team with senior associates Clifford Sandler and Carola Toledo Silva.

Additional support is provided by special counsel Glenda Hanson and solicitors Michaela Lange, Justin Wretham, and Emily Campbell. Partner Justin Rossetto and senior associate Victoria Lanyon are handling tax matters, while banking advice is provided by senior associate Will Stawell and solicitor Samir Kinger. Partners Sharon Henrick and Malcolm Brennan, with Christopher Kok and Katherine Yang, handle regulatory matters.
