Clarendon Lawyers has promoted M&A expert David Bryant to the partnership.

Bryant first joined the firm in 2018 as a senior associate. He is knowledgeable on matters involving private and public M&A, capital raising and investments, joint ventures, strategic contracts, corporate restructuring and general corporate and commercial law.

He has a wealth of experience gained from his time in various roles—he was previously senior legal counsel at Costa Group and worked in ASIC’s corporate finance division. He was also part of King & Wood Mallesons’s M&A team.

Managing director Tony Symons praised Bryant’s dedication to his clients across several industries.

“[Bryant] has quickly established himself as a leading corporate transactional lawyer in mid-market M&A and ECM, with a strong focus on providing an exceptional client experience. His technical skills and experience enhance the firm’s specialist offering across our full suite of corporate legal advisory services,” Symons said.

Symons pointed to Bryant’s promotion as an expression of Clarendons’s commitment to nurturing its talent despite COVID-19’s impact.

“We are committed to providing our talented team with opportunities for personal development and career advancement, even when faced with the challenges of a global pandemic,” Symons said. “Dave has made an outstanding contribution to our firm, people, culture and clients. We are thrilled that he has joined our partnership and achieved a well-deserved career milestone, particularly in the current environment.”

Bryant stepped into his new role beginning 1 July.

“I am thrilled to be joining the Clarendons partnership. The firm has an exceptional team with an unwavering client focus and a growing reputation as the country’s ‘go-to’ specialist corporate legal advisory firm,” he said.
