Colin Biggers & Paisley has announced it is continuing its hiring spree by appointing special counsel Nathan Rhimes (pictured).
According to a statement from the firm, Mr Rhimes has 14 years’ experience in property, development and construction law in Australia and the Middle East.
Throughout his career, he has acted for clients in relation to all aspects of the acquisition and disposal of commercial and retail properties, and the development, construction and leasing of industrial, office, residential and mixed-use properties.
In his new role, Mr Rhimes will join CBP’s Melbourne practice which also recently welcomed a new property partner, Seamus Gunson.
Commenting on the move, CBP managing partner Dunstan de Souza said that expanding the Melbourne office is a priority for the practice to ensure that the needs of their growing client base can be met.
“Nathan is joining one of the fastest, if not the fastest, growing property teams in Australia. We provide our clients with a national service that is second to none and as such, demand for our services has increased and we have responded,” he said.
“He is joining the practice at an exciting time, particularly given the upcoming changes in e-conveyancing and the growth of our online property exchange platform, CBP Exchange.”
The latest hire comes after CBP appointed new partner Paul O’Halloran, who takes to his role in the firm’s employment and safety team.
