Lawyer leaves DLA Piper for DibbsBarker

Lawyer leaves DLA Piper for DibbsBarker

Mahoney Smith, DibbsBarker

National firm DibbsBarker has announced the appointment of a property partner who specialises in the hospitality and tourism sectors.

Mahoney Smith (pictured) is joining DibbsBarker’s Brisbane office as a partner from DLA Piper where she was a senior associate.

Ms Smith has experience in real estate advice and transactions, working across commercial, industrial, retail and residential sectors.

She has acted for REITs, ASX-listed companies and unlisted corporates on major acquisitions and disposals, complex developments, management agreements and large-scale leasing transactions.

Ms Smith specialises in the hospitality and tourism sectors, and has advised on several acquisitions and sales of islands in the Whitsunday region, including Lindeman Island.

In 2015, Ms Smith advised the Destination Brisbane Consortium on property aspects of the redevelopment of the Queen's Wharf precinct in Brisbane’s CBD.

Penny Murray, head of DibbsBarker’s property & projects group, said of Ms Smith: “She will add invaluable depth to our offering, particularly with her specialty in hospitality and tourism which are hot sectors right now. We are delighted that she has joined us.”

DibbsBarker recently welcomed Andrew Rankin as a partner in Brisbane, Fay Calderone as a partner in Sydney and Andrew Rankine as a special counsel in Sydney.
