Perth office pinches new trio

Perth office pinches new trio

A national law firm has revealed the names of three lawyers who have started new roles in its Perth office.  

Gilbert + Tobin has announced the appointment of two senior associates and one solicitor in Western Australia.

Chris Marchesi (pictured), along with Alastair McDonald and Julia Scott are now part of firm’s the 36-head office in Perth.

A statement released by the firm said the hires have been made to service client demand in Perth’s energy and resources sector.  

Mr Marchesi was pinched by Gilbert + Tobin’s Perth office from Melbourne after a number of years working at the firm in Victoria. He will relocate to the west coast for the role in June.

Mr McDonald, a former Tata Steel Europe corporate counsel, has longstanding commercial experience. He has previously advised on strategic projects, divestments and construction projects.

Meanwhile, Ms Scott has left Bis Industries to start her new job with Gilbert + Tobin. She began as a law graduate with the mining and metals processing company and was later promoted to a corporate lawyer position. Ms Scott is also a member of the Australia Indonesia Business Council.

Gilbert + Tobin partner Michael Blakiston welcomed the three practitioners to his team in Perth.

“We are delighted with the appointment of Alastair, Julia and Chris, who bring with them the experience and expertise to add to an already very strong team,” Mr Blakiston said.
