The former head of legal at The Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) in Hong Kong has joined Russells in Queensland.
Fraser Ross (pictured) has been appointed as a senior lawyer at litigation firm Russells. He has been tasked with setting up a new corporate division at the boutique firm, which has offices in Brisbane and Sydney.
Ross has more than 15 years’ international legal experience. Prior to a two-year stint heading up the legal team at RBS, Ross spent three years in the corporate, trust and financial services group at Wakefield Quin in Bermuda and five years with Clifford Chance in London and Hong Kong.
He also worked as a lawyer at Cornwall Stodart in Melbourne in the early 1990s.
Commenting on his appointment, Ross said he was looking forward to building Russells’ new corporate practice from the ground up.
“I look forward to building a strong corporate team,” he added.
