Shaw (pictured) and his team will join Swaab’s property and projects group on 1 July.
Shaw has been the principal partner of Shaw Reynolds for the past 10 years, specialising in environment and planning law, local government and property development.
His clients include local councils and NSW Government authorities and agencies, as well as private developers and corporations.
In March, Swaab appointed the former senior legal counsel of multinational engineering firm Parsons Brinckerhoff to head up its new construction and engineering group.
The firm also recently appointed its first managing partner in four years to work alongside long-time CEO Bronwyn Pott. Property partner Mary Digiglio follows in the footsteps of Swaab’s last managing partner and founder Fred Swaab.
