"I'm delighted to welcome Vi-Ky to the partnership," said Mark Hickey, the firm's chairman of partners.
“His breadth of domestic and international transactional legal experience will make him a valuable member of our corporate group leadership team.”
Before joining Sparke Helmore in 2012, Mr Lam (pictured) worked at King & Wood Mallesons, Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer in London, Hewlett-Packard in Geneva and also assisted Ausgrid in the NSW Energy Reform Program.
Mr Lam advises leading corporates, private equity investors, institutions, venture capital funds and high net worth individuals on public and private M&A, venture capital and private equity transactions.
Sparke Helmore recently appointed six lawyers to its insurance team in Canberra following the loss of six members of staff to Hall & Wilcox.
