Henry Davis York loses practice head

Henry Davis York loses practice head

walk out

The former head of restructuring at Henry Davis York has moved to Jones Day’s Sydney office, along with another partner.

Roger Dobson worked at Henry Davis York for more than 25 years, leading the restructuring team before moving on to Jones Day.

Also joining the Jones Day Sydney team is former Henry Davis York partner Katie Higgins.

"We are pleased to welcome Roger and Katie to Jones Day," said Chris Ahern, partner-in-charge of Australia and Japan.

"Both have strong reputations in restructuring and insolvency, an area of increasing importance in the Asia-Pacific. Roger and Katie will strengthen our skills in this area in the Asia-Pacific.”

Mr Dobson has worked on many large, complex restructuring and insolvency matters in Australia over the last 10 years, including Babcock & Brown, FreightLink, Yellow Pages New Zealand, Nine Entertainment, Hastie Group, I-MED, ABC Learning, and Allco Finance.

Ms Higgins has experience in advising Australian and international banks, funds, and financial institutions on their exposure to distressed companies and special situations investing.

She has advised on matters such as high-profile social infrastructure PPPs, project finance, structured and property transactions, and debt restructuring and workouts.

Henry Davis York opened in Canberra this month, while Jones Day launched in Queensland.
