Allen & Overy loses original Australian partner

Allen & Overy loses original Australian partner

Chris Roberts

One of the 14 partners who joined Allen & Overy when it first launched in Australia has defected to a rival.

Chris Robertson left Allen & Overy, where he was a banking and finance partner, to join King & Wood Malleson’s Sydney office as a consultant.

Mr Robertson was among the 14 partners who joined Allen & Overy when it opened its first Australian offices in 2010, leaving Herbert Smith Freehills for the newcomer.

According to a statement from KWM, he has more than 20 years’ experience in domestic and international finance, including syndicated and corporate debt transactions, leveraged and acquisition finance and secondary debt trades.

Mr Robertson was welcomed by KWM managing partner, banking and finance, Berkeley Cox.

“Chris’ appointment is an important and strategic investment in the growth of our deep and genuinely full service banking and finance practice,” Mr Cox said.

“Combined with the recent appointment, also in Sydney, of Andrew Maynes as a partner [from senior associate], it strengthens our position as the market-leading legal adviser for the financial services sector.”

KWM has attracted several new partners in recent months, including David Cowling from Clayton Utz and Matthew Swinn, formerly of Corrs Chambers Westgarth.
