Global firm grows Qld reach

Global firm grows Qld reach

Jones Day

Jones Day has revealed it is bolstering its presence in the Queensland market by recruiting a new M&A partner to the fold.

The global firm has announced Isaac West has come on board as an M&A partner, based in the Brisbane office.

Mr West joins Jones Day with a background in advising listed and unlisted companies in relation to mergers, acquisitions and capital market matters. He specialises in the agribusiness and natural resources sector.

Among his most recent work is a matter that has seen Mr West advise the Queensland Investment Corporation on its acquisition of a controlling interest in the North Australia Pastoral Company, which manages 5.8 million hectares across Queensland and the Northern Territory.

He also represented Queensland Gas Company during its $5.2 billion on-market takeover, ERM Power on its $100-million initial public offering and listing on the ASX, and PanAust Limited in its $358-million capital raising, a statement from Jones Day said.

“Isaac’s strong experience and capabilities will enhance the work we do for our clients in Queensland and nationally, particularly in agribusiness and the resources sector,” said John Cooper, partner-in-charge of Jones Day’s Brisbane Office.

“He’s joining an experienced team that has demonstrated great insight, and an unwavering commitment to client service.”

Mark Crean, Jones Day’s head of M&A in Australia, echoed this sentiment.

“Our Australian M&A team has grown from three partners less than two years ago to seven partners and 11 associates, giving us the critical mass and scale to assist our clients on major complex transactions,” he said.

“We will continue to build up this team. Isaac will be [a] great resource for our clients. We are delighted he’s joining the firm.”

Mr West said he is delighted to be joining Jones Day, noting it presents a good opportunity for his career going forward.

“Joining Jones Day presents a great opportunity to be a part of a truly global law firm, and provide advice on major M&A and capital markets transactions in Australia and overseas,” Mr West said.

“I am looking forward to working with so many outstanding lawyers in Brisbane and in Jones Day offices around the world.”
