Pipers calls corporate team to Brisbane office
Piper Alderman has nabbed a corporate transport team from Cooper Grace Ward for the firm’s Brisbane office.
The team is led by partner Peter Dwyer (pictured), a corporate and commercial lawyer with a specialist practice in the bus and road transport sector throughout Australia.
Dwyer is joined at Pipers by senior associates Maria Capati and Mark Askin.
The trio joined Piper Alderman at the start of this month.
The team represents both publicly-listed and privately-owned bus operators across a range of legal areas, including negotiations for state government service contracts and mergers and acquisitions, as well as acting for property owners and developers in sales, acquisitions, leases, development applications and subdivisions in various states across Australia.
Head of Piper Alderman’s Brisbane office, Greg Whyte, said: “I’m so pleased to welcome a team that understands the unique challenges of the transport sphere and provides such a wide range of specialist legal services. We are looking forward to getting to know Peter’s clients and sharing Peter’s considerable commercial expertise.”
