K&L Gates takes Brisbane partner
K&L Gates has raided national firm Gadens in a bid to boost its finance stocks in Brisbane.
The global firm has lured across Deborah Bean (pictured), who has more than 20 years’ experience advising high-profile clients including the big four banks.
“Being able to provide a streamlined ‘one-stop’ legal service offering across multiple jurisdictions is exciting, particularly in light of the ever-shrinking global finance market,” she said.
In a 2008 interview with The Courier Mail, Bean, who was a partner at Gadens at the time, said the book that changed her life was Harper Lee’s To Kill A Mockingbird.
