Squires nabs Dibbs finance expert

Squires Sanders’ Sydney office has made a major appointment by poaching finance expert Tom Lennox from Dibbsbarker.

Lennox (pictured) has more than 30 years’ experience in the banking & finance area; he spent more than 19 years at King & Wood Mallesons, where he was partner-in-charge of the firm’s Sydney and Hong Kong offices.

He was also the general counsel and company secretary for Allco Finance Group before joining DibbsBarker in 2009. He is a structured finance specialist with particular experience within the aviation and real estate sectors.

He brings with him senior associate Kate Prior and associate Abigail Sardinia, who have spent more than six years at DibbsBarker. Both have considerable experience in structured finance, particularly in the areas of asset finance and project finance.

Commenting on the hires, Squires’ Australia managing partner John Poulsen said: “With the recent hire of Josh Clarke in Perth and the Lennox team in Sydney, we now have finance capabilities spanning Australia.

“We are looking to expand our services in a number of key areas where we are experiencing client demand. We want to add high-quality lawyers, such as Tom and his team, who share our enthusiasm for a national and international platform and can add value to the services we provide.”

Campbell Davidson, office managing partner of Squires in Sydney, added: “We are excited to bring Tom, Kate and Abigail to Squire Sanders. Their arrival gives us real strength and depth from a financial services perspective, and will also enhance our services to clients in a number of key areas, notably corporate, projects and infrastructure.”

Lennox said: “The opportunity to join a first-class team of lawyers on the ground, and to be able to work with colleagues across the firm’s global platform, are among the reasons I’m pleased to be part of Squire Sanders.”

Lennox is the fourth partner to join Squires in Sydney since the office launched inNovember 2012, following the arrival of corporate partners Campbell Davidson from Allens and Richard Horton from DLA Piper, and construction partner Avendra Singh from Colin Biggers &Paisley.
