Managing legal counsel for QIC moves to DLA Piper

Managing legal counsel for QIC moves to DLA Piper


DLA Piper has appointed former QIC corporate lawyer Emma Kendall as a partner in its Brisbane office.

Ms Kendall (pictured) was managing legal counsel for QIC, an institutional investment manager, before joining DLA Piper this month.

She specialises in transaction and execution advice covering commercial negotiations, investment structuring, particularly cross-border and domestic private markets transactions in real estate, private equity and infrastructure.

She is also experienced in funds management, wholesale product structuring and build advice.

Prior to her role at QIC, Ms Kendall was an associate director at Barclays Capital, the investment banking division of Barclays Bank, where she was an execution specialist in private capital markets.

John Weber, the DLA Piper managing partner in Australia, said: "We're pleased to welcome Emma Kendall to the firm. Her experience in cross-border transactions advice will greatly benefit our clients in Australia."

Asia Pacific head of corporate Bryan Pointon said: "Emma's appointment is a strategic addition to our Asia Pacific team, as part of our ongoing focus on transactional capital markets and private equity work in the region."

Ms Kendall is the seventh corporate partner to join DLA Piper in the past 10 months, following the appointments of James Philips from Minter Ellison, David Hallam from Corrs Chambers Westgarth, Michael Bowen, Scott Gibson and Marc Wilshaw from Hardy Bowen and Grant Koch from Allen & Overy.
