Simpson Grierson has expanded its senior team with the appointment of Catherine Shipton.

Shipton joins the firm’s corporate group in Christchurch as a senior associate following her six-year stint with Allen & Overy in London, where she primarily worked on complex M&A transactions in the global energy and infrastructure markets. Prior to this, she served as a solicitor at Bell Gully for over three years.

“Working from Christchurch/Ōtautahi with our Auckland/Tāmaki Makaurau-based team, Catherine is a shining example of our commitment to flexible working,” the firm said. “Her fresh thinking and extensive portfolio of work adds to the strength and depth of talent across our corporate team.”

A highly skilled corporate lawyer, Shipton specialises in M&A, equity capital markets, commercial contracts, corporate governance, financing transactions, leveraged and acquisition finance, debt capital markets, and project finance.

She has acted for numerous clients across the infrastructure, energy, and renewables sectors. Her clients include France-based private equity firm Ardian, global investment manager AMP Capital, and global financial group First State Investments (now Igneo Infrastructure Partners).
