Three Australian lawyers make counsel at Clifford Chance

Three Australia-based lawyers are among the 11 new counsel and consultants Clifford Chance has appointed in the Asia-Pacific region.

Jonathan Halliwell, Sean Marriott, and Jason Oliver have all been elevated from senior associate to counsel by the global giant.

Halliwell is a part of the corporate team in Sydney. He specialises in advising private equity, infrastructure investors, and financial sponsors and corporates on a wide range of matters, including leveraged buyouts, acquisitions and disposals, joint ventures, restructurings, secondaries transactions, and equity arrangements.

Marriott, who is based in Perth, is an engineer and lawyer known for his work in international commercial arbitrations and investment treaty arbitrations, including under the rules of The London Court of International Arbitration, the International Chamber of Commerce, the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law, the London Maritime Arbitrators Association, and the International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes.

Based in Sydney, Oliver is also part of the Clifford Chance litigation and dispute resolution team.  He is an internationally experienced lawyer specialising in complex, cross-border banking and financial services litigation, contentious regulatory matters, commercial disputes, insolvency litigation, and contentious restructuring matters.
