PwC has hired a partner from Blake Dawson to establish a corporate and commercial legal practice in Perth.
Paul Sartori practises in corporate and securities law, specialising in mergers and acquisitions and equity capital markets transactions.
Sartori began his career in Perth more than 15 years ago before moving to London in 2000 to join UK firm Berwin Leighton Paisner. He has been special counsel at Blake Dawson in Perth since 2008, where he has worked with a wide range of clients in the mining, oil and gas and financial services sectors.
PwC said the new recruit's experience reinforces PwC's Perth practice and strengthens PwC's focus on supporting Western Australia's key industries.
PwC's legal practice now spans the major cities of Perth, Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney.
