What the team is known for

A strong domestic practice with a prominent regional capability. Acts primarily for major domestic banking institutions, especially in matters relating to real estate, property and construction finance, including structured and syndicated finance. Also advises borrowers on the financing agreements for real estate acquisitions and developments. Operates within the institutional bank, corporate bank, commercial bank, business bank, retail bank and self-managed superannuation fund markets.


One client particularly appreciates this as a practice with a "more streamlined and simpler process" than some, with lawyers who "do not overcomplicate things and create problems." Another praises the combination of "personal attention from senior staff and attention to detail from all staff."

Work highlights

Advised ING Bank on the AUD120 million debt financing of AEW Capital Management's purchase of a 27-storey office building in the Melbourne CBD.
