GADENS Lawyers Sydney has hired a property expert from DLA Piper, where she was partner.
Laresa Koscharsky advises on large commercial, industrial and retail property transactions including negotiating development contracts, documentation for acquisition and disposals and leasing.
The new partner's client base includes corporate clients, listed property trusts and developers.
Steve Healy, head of Gadens property team said the new lawyer brings a wealth of experience that will be very valuable for the firm's large institutional property clients.
"At a time when many large law firms are scaling back their property practices, Laresa’s appointment is indicative of Gadens’ commitment to the sector, with property being a core area of focus for the firm."
