Corrs makes two senior appointments

Corrs Chambers Westgarth (Corrs) has strengthened its banking, finance and projects capabilities with the appointments of James Abbott and Simon Huxley.

Abbott and Huxley are partners at Allen & Overy (A&O) in Sydney. Abbott is a financing specialist with a particular focus on project and acquisition financing in the infrastructure, energy and resources sectors. He has worked on syndicated, ECA and multi-source debt financing involving major Australian and Southeast Asian projects.

A project specialist, Huxley has broad expertise in construction and commercial matters in the infrastructure, energy and resources sectors. He has dealt with leading complex project finance and M&A transactions and advised sponsors, project companies and financiers on all aspects of project finance and development.

Corrs announced the appointments of Abbott and Huxley following last month’s hiring of Adam Stapledon, another A&O partner and debt and projects practice lead.

“We are very pleased to welcome James and Simon to Corrs,” Corrs CEO Gavin MacLaren said. “Along with Adam, they are widely recognised as leaders in the market and will add substantial value to our banking, finance and projects capabilities.”
