National firms lure partners from big globals

Johnson Winter Slattery (JWS) and Corrs Chambers Westgarth have welcomed partners into their fold from Baker McKenzie and PwC, respectively.

Building and construction disputes specialist Aleisa Crepin commenced with JWS in Brisbane, while transactional tax expert Cameron Blackwood joined Corrs in Sydney.

Crepin, who was previously with Baker McKenzie, mainly works with the energy sector. In a legal career spanning over 15 years, she has played a role in several high-profile construction projects, including those involving the Sydney Light Rail, Parramatta Light Rail, Perth Airport and Gold Coast Airport.

Meanwhile, Blackwood has spent almost 20 years advising ASX-listed and international corporates. He focuses on tax complexities related to mergers, acquisitions and restructures, debt and equity capital management, cross-border issues, and all aspects of employee share schemes for both public and private groups.

Prior to his stint at PwC, which began in June 2022, Blackwood was with Greenwoods & Herbert Smith Freehills for 18 years.
