Elliot Raleigh (pictured) and Matthew Wilson have been appointed as banking and finance partners.
Mr Raleigh joins the firm from Clayton Utz, where he worked for more than six years as a senior associate with the banking and financial services team. He specialises in bilateral, club and syndicated corporate finance, construction and investment property finance, project finance, acquisition finance and pre-IPO finance transactions.
Mr Wilson has been promoted to partner from executive counsel. He has represented a number of commercial banks, international investment banks, property funds and other large corporates on general banking and restructuring transactions.
Kemp Strang managing partner Michael Joseph said the new partners would develop growth in firm’s banking and finance group.
"Over the past couple of years we have grown from one office in Sydney to offices in Melbourne and Brisbane, which together account for almost 20 per cent of our national headcount. Elliot is highly regarded in the market and we are delighted that he has joined us. I believe Elliot's expertise and specific skills will deepen our client offering in many areas," Mr Joseph said.
"Along with Elliot, the appointment of Matthew will help support and accommodate for the continual development of Kemp Strang’s banking and finance clientele," he added.
Kemp Strang has also recently appointed three new senior associates to the same practice area and a fourth to its corporate group. Jonathan Grunstein, Nick Garling and Stuart Stevens were promoted in the banking, finance and property team, and Alina Oussova in the corporate team.
