LAW firm Slater & Gordon has lost the head of its Melbourne commercial group to smaller peer Madgwicks Lawyers, a rising commercial and property firm in William Street.
Chris Verebes joins the firm as part of a hat trick for Madgwicks, which announced three new appointments this week.
Catherine Bourne also joins Madgwicks as a senior associate in the property division. She has experience in property development, conveyancing, leasing and general property matters. She joins the firm from Kalus Kenny Lawyers, a 16-year-old firm in Melbourne.
Khaled Bajhau joins Madgwick's financial services group, bringing experience in funds management, mergers and acquisitions, superannuation, corporate equity and private equity. Bajhau was previously the in-house counsel at Industry Funds Management.
