2 new partners for Corrs

Gaynor Tracey

Corrs Chambers Westgarth has announced it has appointed two new partners to the firm, with one joining the construction practice and the other joining the firm’s corporate advisory team.

Corrs has welcomed Jane Hider (pictured left) as partner within the construction practice and Gaynor Tracey (pictured right) as partner within its corporate advisory team.

In her new role, Ms Hider will be based in Corrs’ Melbourne office.

Ms Hider brings over 20 years’ experience to her new role, having advised on significant construction matters and major projects, as well as corporate advisory matters. She has advised clients on the procurement, structuring and delivery of government and private sector construction projects, primarily in the transport, education, water and renewable energy sectors.

Ms Hider has joined Corrs from DLA Piper where she was the managing partner of the firm’s Melbourne office.

Meanwhile, Ms Tracey joins Corrs’ Sydney office in her new role. She brings with her extensive experience in corporate and commercial law matters, both in the UK and Australian market.

Throughout her career, Ms Tracey has provided expertise in both the transactional and advisory areas of corporate matters and merger and acquisitions. She has significant experience in representing clients in the media sector, as well as working with private equity and start-up clients, as well as offshore clients.

Corrs partner and CEO John W.H. Denton AO welcomed the arrival of both Ms Hider and Ms Tracey, saying they each bring substantial value to the firm.

“Both Jane and Gaynor are extremely well regarded in their respective fields, and we are delighted to welcome them to Corrs,” Mr Denton said.

“Their skills and experience will complement and enhance our existing offering, and their combined Australian and international experience closely align with Corrs’ position as the most globally connected law firm based in Australia.”
