The senior lawyer moves from another top-tier firm
Pinsent Masons’ banking and finance group will get bigger tomorrow as the firm welcomes a new partner in Australia.
Jeremy King will join the firm’s Australian practice from Corrs Chambers Westgarth, where he has been a partner in the banking and finance practice for more than seven years. He also became the chairman of the firm’s pro bono and community program in 2016.
The firm said that he will be based in Melbourne, but will also support Perth and Sydney offices and bolster the firm’s banking and finance offering across the entire Asia-Pacific region.
King has a particular focus on project and infrastructure finance, structured asset finance, acquisition finance, corporate finance, and restructuring and workouts, Pinsent Masons said. He is also experienced in financing for energy and renewables, social infrastructure, roads and rail, property, mining and resources, and water and sanitation projects.
Anthony Arrow, who leads the firm’s finance and projects team in Australia, said that the firm is excited to have a partner who is so highly regarded in the industry, particularly for his banking and finance work and his strong leadership in the pro bono space.
“Given the unprecedented growth in Australia’s energy and infrastructure sectors, we look forward to tapping into Jeremy’s significant experience and skillsets to enhance our offerings in the Australian market and the wider Asia Pacific region,” Arrow said. “Jeremy’s appointment as partner at Pinsent Masons is symbolic of our fast-growing brand recognition in Australia. It is also testament to the firm's strategic decision to focus on the needs of our clients in the infrastructure and energy sectors across the entire project life cycle.”
