ABL hires trio of new partners from rivals

ABL hires trio of new partners from rivals

Arnold Bloch Leibler has hired three new partners in its Sydney office, hailing from Freehills, SJ Berwin, and Sydney law firm Landerer & Company.

ARNOLD Bloch Leibler has hired three new partners in its Sydney office, hailing from Freehills, SJ Berwin, and Sydney law firm Landerer & Company. 

Rick Narev has joined as a commercial and corporate partner from Freehills, and Nathan Briner joined the firm as a banking and finance partner from SJ Berwin. Jonathan Caplan will join the firm later this month as a partner from Landerer & Company to lead the Sydney property and development practice.

Narev has been a partner of Freehills since 1996. He worked for large-scale public companies and large private client groups. His areas of practice include mergers and acquisitions, foreign investment, initial public offerings and other equity raisings, joint ventures, and transactional and strategic corporate advice.

Briner has spent the past 12 years in London and has been a partner of SJ Berwin since 2005. He has advised lenders and borrowers in relation to structuring, negotiating and documenting bank facilities and structured financings. Over the last five years, Nathan has had a particular focus on UK-based and cross-border real estate finance transactions.

Caplan has been a director at Landerer & Company where he has worked for over 17 years. His new firm says Caplan earned a reputation as a market leader in the area of commercial property law, particularly among high-net-worth individuals and large private client groups with key operations in the property sector.

Henry Lanzer, managing partner, said the appointments are high calibre and will assist in strengthening the firm's position in Sydney.

Senior partner at the firm, Mark Leibler AC, said all three partners have acted for large public and private clients, including some who already instruct the firm. 

"Their experience and expertise complement our focus and client base and will also provide additional capacity and depth of expertise to our clients.”
