KWM promotes three to partner

KWM promotes three to partner

King & Wood Mallesons has appointed three new partners across its Sydney and Perth offices in a recent round of internal promotions.

Mark Bayliss (pictured) has been made partner in the firm’s projects & real estate group based in Sydney. He specialises in Australia and Asia regional real estate capital market transactions.

The Sydney office has also seen the promotion of Jerome Tse in the firm’s tax practice. Tse advises a range of clients, including banks and other financial institutions, private equity groups and resource companies.

Last month (31 October) KWM’s Melbourne office also added a tax partner, Michael Perez, who was poached from Allens.

In Perth, Juliana Jorissen is now a partner in the firm’s dispute resolution practice. Many of her clients are from the construction and energy & resources sector.

Jorissen is the third partner promotion in Perth this year following the recent appointments of banking & finance partner Nathan Collins and projects & real estate partner Katherine Vines.

 “These new partners are highly driven and will bring a wealth of new ideas and energy to the partnership,” said Sue Kench, KWM’s Australian managing partner.

The appointments of Bayliss and Jorissen are effective from 1 December 2013, while Tse will join the partnership on 1 January 2014.

KWM has promoted seven partners in 2013. While Perez is one of many lateral hires the firm has made this year, it has also lost a number of well regarded partners, including Alex Regan, who left KWM to join Corrs Chambers Westgarth in September.
