Ashurst bolsters real estate practice

Ashurst, Diane Skapinker

Ashurst has announced it has hired a new partner who joins the firm’s real estate practice in Sydney.

Diane Skapinker (pictured) has been welcomed to Ashurst’s partnership, joining from K&L Gates.

In her legal career, Ms Skapinker had also been employed by Gilbert + Tobin where she was the head of its real estate group.

Ms Skapinker brings extensive experience to her new role at Ashurst, having advised on high-profile property developments, infrastructure transactions, acquisitions, disposals and leasing.

In addition, Ms Skapinker has more than 18 years’ experience working for corporate and government real estate clients and is consistently ranked as one of Australias leading real estate partners by Chambers Asia-Pacific, according to a statement from Ashurst.

“Diane is a well-respected real estate practitioner and a leading authority in property law,” said head of the Ashurst’s Asia Pacific real estate group, Damian Salsbury.

“Her outstanding reputation will assist in further boosting our market leading expertise.

“We look forward to welcoming her to the team.”

Commenting on her new role, Ms Skapinker said: “Ashurst’s real estate practice is able to offer its clients a unique multidisciplinary capability, both nationally and internationally”.

“I look forward to contributing to the practice’s growth as part of a collaborative global team,” she said.
