Mills Oakley appointments

Mills Oakley has announced the appointment of two new partners in its Brisbane and Perth offices.

Tony Lalor has joined Mills Oakley’s Brisbane corporate advisory team.

Mr Lalor was previously a partner at Clayton Utz, and brings to his new role extensive experience in M&A transactions and equity capital markets.

Throughout his career he has formed a diverse client base, which includes the mining, telecommunications, financial services, agribusiness and automotive sectors.

Meanwhile, Brendan Taylor is set to join Mills Oakley’s Perth disputes team.

Mr Taylor specialises in construction and corporate disputes, regulatory investigations and prosecutions, and media and defamation matters.

Mr Taylor joins the firm from Taylor Olivier (formerly Rockwell Olivier). He has represented ASX-listed and private companies across Australia in construction disputes and arbitrations.

Mr Taylor has also acted for directors, shareholders and companies in corporate disputes and investigations, administrative actions and prosecutions by regulatory agencies – predominantly ASIC – and law enforcement bodies.

Mills Oakley CEO John Nerurker said the two new partner hires are the latest example of the firm’s ability to attract and retain sought-after talent.

“We were one of many firms to express interest in Brendan when he left Rockwell Olivier back in 2015,” Mr Nerurker said.

“It has been a long process, but we see Brendan’s decision to join Mills Oakley as a real endorsement of what we have achieved in the west since launching in Perth nearly two years ago.

“Over half our partnership has joined us from tier-one firms and Tony fits well with the Mills Oakley value proposition of top-tier expertise, combined with the value of a mid-size firm.”

Mr Taylor commenced his new role with Mills Oakley in early October, while Mr Lalor will begin at the firm later this month.
