Minters hires Freehills partner in Perth

Minters hires Freehills partner in Perth

Minter Ellison has hired former Freehills finance partner Gemey Visscher in Perth._x000D_

Minter Ellison has hired former Freehills finance partner Gemey Visscher in Perth.

Visscher, formerly a partner of Freehills in Perth for 15 years, is a project finance lawyer with credentials in commodity-based, general commercial and complex corporate financing transactions. She has more than 25 years' experience in financing projects both in Australia and internationally.

In the past four months Minter Ellison’s Perth office has recruited partners Adam Handley and Richard Guit and partner designate Mike Hales to join the existing partners.

Chief executive partner John Weber said Visscher will enhance the firm’s finance capabilities in Perth.

“Particularly in the important area of project finance in the energy and resources sector. Her appointment highlights the firm's continued investment in the West Australian market and also strengthens our regional offering, especially in Greater China."

Visscher will work with banking and finance partner Ben Cockerill and insolvency and restructuring partner Leith Ayres. She will also work with the Co-Chair of the firm's China practice, Adam Handley, who is also based in Perth.

Commenting on her decision to join Minters, Visscher said a key factor was the firm's focus on having strong relationships in Asia and a strong on-the-ground regional presence.

"I'm particularly looking forward to continuing to work with all the major Australian banks as well as bringing my Chinese banking practice experience to the firm. Minter Ellison's reputation in banking and finance is first-class and its focus and track record on China is a great asset."
