DLA picks up property partner duo

DLA picks up property partner duo

Two real estate lawyers, Eagul Faigen from Norton Rose Fulbright and Tim Mathers from Herbert Smith Freehills, have joined DLA Piper.

DLA Piper managing partner in Australia John Weber (pictured) was delighted by the twin hire, saying the appointments “represent a significant development for our growing real estate practice in the Asia Pacific region and supports our ambitions for further growth in the corporate and transactional areas of our business”.

Faigen was a partner at NRF for six years and has advised on large-scale capital transactions, real estate developments and complex high-end leasing for public and private sector clients.

He will join the Perth office in February 2015, at the same time as Mathers joins the Brisbane office.

Mathers’ appointment is a step up in his career as he previously worked as a senior associate at HSF. He has experience with commercial property transactions, major infrastructure projects and commercial M&A transactions in a wide range of sectors.

The two appointments stand in contrast to DLA Australia’s recent pattern of partner defections. Last year, the percentage of Australian fee earners fell by around 15 per cent and the partnership in Melbourne has dropped substantially since June 2012.
