DLA Piper has appointed a leading Allens Arthur Robinson partner to its ranks in corporate. 


The firm today announced that Warwick Painter joined the firm in Sydney this week.

 

Painter, who was a partner at Allens for 11 years, is a leading corporate lawyer with experience advising on high profile and complex mergers and acquisitions, capital raisings in both debt, equity and listed funds, and restructurings.

Prior to working at Allens, Painter also spent 14 years as in-house corporate counsel at Westpac, including six years as head of corporate and institutional legal for the bank.

 

DLA Piper managing partner Tony Holland said the appointment represents an enhancement of the firm's strong corporate capability.
