Baker McKenzie alum Maria O’Brien has made the jump to Clayton Utz as its newest partner.

Her addition bolsters Clayton Utz’s restructuring and insolvency offering. According to national practice group leader and restructuring and insolvency partner Nicholas Poole, O’Brien joins “amid an anticipated increase in formal insolvencies, presenting a substantial opportunity for our restructuring and insolvency practice”.

“Maria's addition to Clayton Utz will enhance our reputation for providing market leading services to debtors, financial creditors, sponsors, bondholders, and directors on all aspects of restructurings, workouts, and cross-border insolvencies”, Poole said.

O'Brien has represented distressed or insolvent companies, administrators, creditors, debtors, financial institutions, insolvency practitioners, distressed debt funds, and company directors in relation to contentious and non-contentious matters related to corporate distress.

She presides over Australia's Turnaround Management Association and is a fellow of the International Association of Restructuring, Insolvency & Bankruptcy Professionals.
