Alberto Colla is one of four new appointments to the panel
MinterEllison partner Alberto Colla has been appointed to the Australian Takeovers Panel for a three-year term.
Colla joins the panel as a new member and will work alongside other members to regulate corporate transactions through resolution of takeover disputes. He was one of the one of four new appointments announced by Federal Treasurer Josh Frydenberg last week.
“It's an exciting time to be joining the panel, with a number of important recent decisions that are reshaping market practice,” Colla said. “I'm looking forward to working with my peers on the panel, as well as continuing to support MinterEllison clients with their public M&A strategies as we navigate the opportunities and challenges our market presents.”
A Melbourne-based partner, Colla has extensive expertise in mergers, acquisitions, divestments, restructures, capital raisings, joint ventures and other commercial contracts. He has also handled a wide range of corporate governance matters, including continuous disclosure, directors’ duties, shareholder activism, financial reporting and executive remuneration.
He has represented clients across multiple industries, such as food and agribusiness, healthcare, manufacturing, retail, property and construction.
He is an active member of the Corporations Committee − Business Section of the Law Council of Australia. He also writes and presents on latest corporate legal developments, and has served as a guest speaker at Governance Institute of Australia and Leo Cussen Centre for Law.
