G+T boosts partnership ranks with K&L Gates hire

Gilbert + Tobin (G+T) has boosted its partnership ranks with the appointment of Zac Kerr.

Kerr joins the energy and infrastructure team in Melbourne. He moved from K&L Gates, where he previously served as partner and global co-head of the construction and infrastructure group.

“I’m delighted to welcome Zac to the G+T energy and infrastructure team,” partner Alexander Danne said. “He is a highly respected member of the profession, and his appointment compliments and deepens our offering, bringing further bench strength to our project, construction and project finance teams in the energy and infrastructure market.”

Kerr has extensive expertise in large and complex infrastructure procurement projects. He has drafted and negotiated project agreements, construction, operation and maintenance agreements, feedstock, offtake, tolling and other revenue agreements, and ancillary project documentation.

He has advised privately owned toll roads in Australia and international road projects and assisted with numerous public-private partnerships (PPPs) undertaken within and outside the country. Moreover, he has helped clients deal with the sale and purchase of infrastructure assets and non-recourse or limited recourse project finance documentation.

Kerr’s clients include sponsors, PPP financiers and contractors, toll roads, power stations, renewable projects, transmission and distribution assets, rail, ports, airports, telecommunication, and industrial projects across Australia, New Zealand, developing and developed Asian countries, the UK, European countries, and the US.
