REINFORCING ITS Commonwealth Government practice, Blake Dawson Waldron has appointed Susan McCarthy to its Canberra team, to commence 1 February 2007.

An experienced commercial property partner, McCarthy has nearly six years’ experience as a corporate partner in Corrs Chambers Westgarths public law group.

“[McCarthy] is highly regarded for her ability to effectively implement commercial arrangements for government, typically in a statutory or regulated environment, with the private sector. She has particularly strong client relationship skills and understands the needs of government,” John Clark, head of the government practice group, said.

“We anticipate [McCarthy] will play a key role in further developing the firm’s strategic client relationships and contribute to building our property practice nationally. We are fortunate to have someone of [McCarthy’s] calibre and experience join our Canberra practice.”

McCarthy brings nearly two decades of experience, at Corrs and Freehills, advising national corporations such as Lend Lease, Westfield, Westpac, ING, Mirvac, Stockland, Woolworths and Telstra on commercial property transactions.

“[Blakes] has a highly impressive government practice that is very committed and well regarded by the market,” McCarthy said. “This is a tremendous opportunity for me to contribute my experience to a leading team.”

McCarthy expects to focus principally on commercial property transactions for key clients such as the Department of Finance and Administration, Airservices Australia, Centrelink, the Australian Taxation Office, the Department of Defence and the Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry.
