Nicholas Grambas will join the firm as a partner in its Melbourne office.
On why he made the move, Grambas said: “Gilbert + Tobin has a track record of high-quality clients and transactions in its M&A, ECM, finance and regulatory practice. I’m looking forward to the prospect of joining this top-tier firm and helping to develop their presence further in these areas – both domestically and internationally."
Grambas was the head of Baker & McKenzie's banking and finance group, and advises on international transactions, project finance and significant infrastructure developments.
