NRF boosts corporate team

Team

Norton Rose Fulbright has recruited a corporate partner from a global rival.

The firm announced earlier this week that Martin Irwin (pictured) has joined its corporate and M&A team in Sydney.

Mr Irwin was previously a partner at Baker McKenzie. His expertise includes acting for clients in infrastructure, energy and resources, privatisation and project finance.

He has worked in Singapore and Hong Kong, and has experience advising on major transactions across the Asia-Pacific region, according to a statement from Norton Rose Fulbright.

“I am very pleased to join a leading global firm that is executing on an exciting growth strategy including a strong commitment to my core focus sectors: infrastructure, energy and financial institutions,” Mr Irwin said.

The announcement follows the recent appointment of corporate M&A partner Adam Edelman, who will join the firm in September, and the promotion of M&A partner Raymond Lou on 1 July.

Wayne Spanner, the firm’s managing partner in Australia, said it is continuing to build the strength of its corporate team.

“Our national corporate team continues to attract high-quality senior lawyers from across the profession with deep experience in domestic and cross-border work for many of our core areas of industry focus,” he said.

“The addition of Martin will bolster our offering to clients across financial institutions, energy and infrastructure. He joins at an exciting time for our firm as we continue to grow in the local, regional and global markets.”

NRF recently lost four partners to Pinsent Masons.
